June 12, 2022 Today is Trinity Sunday-the only Sunday in the whole liturgical calendar year when we focus on a doctrine, rather than a biblical event. Still, this word, Holy Trinity, is not really a thing. It’s a relationship. This is one of those Sunday’s which reminds us that “some things just have to be believed to be seen.” In his beautiful book “Open Secrets,” Richard Lischer describes a stained-glass window at the church where he served in rural Illinois. It is called the Trinity window, and it uses triangles and Latin to depict a geometric diagram for God. In the center is a larger triangle which stands for God. Deus, it reads in Latin. And around that triangle are three smaller triangles, one for Pater (Father), another Filius (Son), and the third Spiritus Sanctus (Holy Spirit).
