Trinity Sunday 2023

VICAR

Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine, I trust that You are well. I know some of You will by now be praying for rain. Welcome to Trinity Sunday 2023.

Trinity Sunday is a day to celebrate and give thanks to the Holy Trinity. The doctrine of the Holy Trinity in Christianity is that there is One God who is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Christians believe God is named the Father as he is the creator of all things and watches over us, guiding us and loving us unconditionally. The Son is Jesus Christ, who is the form God chose when He came to Earth. Even though Jesus Christ is known as the ‘Son of God’, according to the doctrine He is the incarnation of God. The Holy Spirit refers to the active force of God, His power and His love.

The word ‘Trinity’ comes from the prefix ‘Tri’, referring to the three persons of God, and ‘unity’ which means joined as a whole. Christians believe God is One, a whole, but is experienced as three persons.

Trinity Sunday is a Holy Day in Christianity. It is also known as the Feast of the Holy Trinity. It is a joyous celebration where Christians come together to honour the Holy Trinity. This day is an opportunity for Christians to worship and to thank the Holy Trinity for all they have done.

I trust that You have a peaceful Sunday and another excellent week to come. God Bless You All.

Lord Jesus, We worship you, Saviour and Lord of the world, and we praise you that you have found us, washed us, forgiven us and given us a place in your church. Holy Spirit, We worship you, sanctifier of the people of God, and we praise you that you have renewed us and blessed us with your gifts. Amen.
