This week at St. John

 

May 25th & 26th

The Sunday after Pentecost is celebrated each year as Trinity Sunday, a day on which the church meditates on the mystery of our God, praising one divine unity of three distinct presences. Each way that we speak about the Trinity is inadequate. Indeed, a god we could understand wouldn’t be much of a god. In worship we are gathered into the life of our unfathomable God.
