Texts: Proverbs 8:1-4, 21-30; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15
Trinity teaches us about who God is. Trinity teaches us not just that God is in relationship, but that God embodies relationship: relationship is fundamental to who God is. Looking through scripture, we see that it is full of stories of God being with: God is at the beginning in the garden, walking beside humanity. When Adam and Eve are cast out, God goes with them. God travels with Israel through the sea and across the desert, resides among the people in the temple, speaks to them through the prophets. Withness is so much of what God does that we can’t tell the story of God without it. Even our experience of God speaks to a fundamental relationship between the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In Jesus, God is with us; and even after his death, resurrection and ascension, he is still with us in the Spirit of Truth.
