As people of God, we dwell in two kingdoms, left and right. This weekend we recognize God’s right hand kingdom as together we speak through the Athanasian Creed, the great and ancient teaching of the mystery of the Trinity, that our God is three Persons in One. That truth is not easy; we pray that as we walk through these words together we are united in the truth of the Triune God.
And as citizens of this great nation we dwell in God’s left hand kingdom, no less of God even though populated by fallen and sinful people. We turn to the Triune God as we give thanks for those many who have given their lives in the armed forces of the United States, and we pray that God Almighty may rest the souls of those who sacrificed so much for us. Trinity Sunday and Memorial Day – two great celebrations of God’s providence in His Kingdom.
