Prayer for Liverpool
Trinity Sunday is the day when the Christian Church draws together everything it wants to say about God, about the nature of God, about the activity of God, and about how God is made known among us. Trinity Sunday is the day when the Christian Church stretches the boundaries of language to describe what is unseeable and to speak what is ineffable.
Trinity Sunday captures the majesty, transcendence, and mystery of God the Father, who creates all that is, and who is revealed through creation and creativity. Trinity Sunday captures the humility, immanence, and mystery of God the Son, who brings salvation, and who is revealed through healing and restoration. Trinity Sunday captures the life-giving power and mystery of God the Holy Spirit, who sustains and nurtures our pilgrimage to sanctification, and who is revealed in the unfolding events of life.
On Trinity Sunday we are invited to stop, to stoop, and to pay homage before the mystery of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. On Trinity Sunday we are invited to lose ourselves in wonder, love, and praise, and to join that eternal and unending song: ‘Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts’.
In today’s image and picture Teddy Horsley is getting ready for the mood of Trinity Sunday by pausing at the foot of the Aber Falls, as the feeling of majesty, awe, and wonder overwhelmed him. Today Teddy Horsley invites you to bring that image with you as you prepared your hearts and your homes for participating in the Sunday Eucharist broadcast from Liverpool Cathedral.
The image for next Sunday, when the Gospel reading is Matthew’s account of Jesus commissioning the twelve disciples, is friends. You can find out more about that theme here: https://www.prayerforliverpool.org/prayer-resources.html. We would really appreciate you letting us know how you are using these materials. Please send us your ideas and photos of the things you may create; email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last month I launched a national survey to explore how churchgoers are feeling during the lockdown. I hope that many people who visit this website today will be willing to participate in the survey. It is completely anonymous and confidential. Find out more here: https://tinyurl.com/ycsq9fy2.
