The closing verses of Matthew's Gospel include the Trinitarian formula in the call to go to all the nations. For this reason these verses are appointed for the Sunday of the Holy Trinity. (See the Preface for a brief comment on the place of the Holy Spirit in the Gospel of Matthew.) There is little in the text to help us grasp what "Trinity" might mean. We will have to import that from our theological traditions. It is often said that this Sunday is the only day in the church's year devoted to a doctrine. There is a call here to teach the meaning of this complex Christian doctrine.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
