A Continuing Presence Sermon by Larry Powell based on John 16:12-15 excerpted from Blow The Silver Trumpets: Sermons for Pentecost [First Third]
Clarence Macartney tells of a certain Canadian river which flows through a forbidding chasm. Looming on either side of the river are rugged, uninviting crags which bear the names "Eternity" and "Trinity." Macartney suggests that the opposing crags invite an analogy (you understand of course, that to a preacher, most everything invites analogy). "Inseparable from any true conception of God," he says, "are always the two doctrines of God's eternity and God's trinity ... The threefold experience of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit." The great preacher then goes on to conclude that both doctrines lie helplessly beyond human comprehension.... click here for the full sermon SUBSCRIBERS USE THIS LINK
Free Children's Sermon for Trinity Sunday
Two's Company, Three's a Crowd? Children's sermon by Anna Shirey from CSSPlus (Children's Sermon Service...Plus) First Thoughts: As we prepare for this Sunday's worship, we find ourselves contemplating the Trinity. The idea of God as Three-in-One has been the source of inspiration, debate, and outright confusion in the Christian world over the centuries. What exactly does it mean, and how do we celebrate it? My personal understanding of the Trinity is that it points us to the essential nature of God and offers an example to the church.

If I mentioned Sophia to you, what memories would it evoke? Would you think of a movie called Sophie's Choice? Or perhaps you know of someone whose name is Sophia. Some of you might think of a controversy stirred up several years ago at a women's conference that was exploring feminine images for God.

Bringing Up Ziva
She was born early, by about 10 weeks. She was a tiny little thing, under two pounds. Her lungs weren't quite developed and she was jaundiced to boot, so instead of being in her mother's arms, she was in an isolette in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. The nurses had put soft gauze pads over her eyelids, to protect them from the brilliant bililight (a light intended to bleed away the bilirubin in her blood so the jaundice would go away). Because her lungs weren't fully developed, she was on special medications, a machine that breathed for her, and the isolette rocked gently to help her along....
