Trinity Sunday

by | Jun 7, 2020 | Sermons

On this first weekend in June, may God’s grace, love, and peace bless you in every way.

As we celebrate Trinity Sunday, let us focus on 1 Thessalonians 1:1-8, and join me in singing “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty” (#138 of the Presbyterian Hymnal).  The lyrics are printed below:

1 Holy, holy, holy!  Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy!  Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

2 Holy, holy, holy!  All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3 Holy, holy, holy!  Though the darkness hide thee,
though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
only thou art holy; there is none beside thee
perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

4 Holy, holy, holy!  Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy!  Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

May God’s grace and peace continue to embrace you during these uncertain times.

Blessings,
tom

From the Pastor’s Pen – March 2021

…during these 40 days of Lent, we may be wandering through a wilderness and encountering a different set of wild beasts. Invisible viruses are attempting to devour us; the herd of political animosity is growling around us…”

February Newsletter

Lent is not only that time in the church year in which we are summoned to examine ourselves and our everyday preoccupations in order to take stock of the direction of our lives, but it also that time where we are invited to follow Jesus along the journey that took Him to the cross.
