Born Into Love (Again)  – This is Trinity Sunday, and the scripture from the Fourth Gospel is about the learned Pharisee Nicodemus coming to Jesus at night to ask a number of questions.  Much as Nicodemus had questions, even as learned as we may be, we, too, can have questions, even about the concept of “The Trinity.”  Although for centuries The Trinity has been described in terms of “Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,” we know that such terms cannot contain all the meaning associated with The Trinity.  In recent years we have, for example, grown to use, “Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer” as another description.  We might well note that however one conceptualizes “The Trinity,” there is a bond of love that flows between the three parts, and we, too, can join and experience that love.  In some ways we can understand The Trinity as an invitation to move beyond intellectual understanding into a relationship.  The sermon reminds us of that example of John Wesley whose heart was “strangely warmed” in his Aldersgate experience.  (NOTE: This is the first Sunday of a new summer schedule continuing through June and July with a single worship service at 10 o’clock on Sundays.)   (NOTE: Reflecting the importance of the Word, the video begins with the scripture, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
