Trinity Sunday 2017

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20

Trinity Sunday

The promise I am with you always
spoken from the mountain top
a sacred covenant of eternal  love
we are woven and bound together.

Returning to the majestic mountains
awesome and dreadful cloud shrouded
we experience rain and wind together
and wonder whether we survive it all.

We have been soaked and battered yes
yet the ancient promise returned
we looked up again and saw shimmering
a rainbow stretching across the valleys.

We have come so far still getting lost
yet again and again we hear those words
I am with you always to ages end
we are bound together in the holy.

The Collect

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
