Weekly letter from St Luke's - 24th May 2024

Dear Parish Friends

This Sunday is Trinity Sunday. I started my sermon last year on this day by referring to a note in the guidebook to Fountain’s Abbey, a ruined Cistercian Monastery in Yorkshire of life there. It is said, of the Chapter House, that “Here the monks gathered every Sunday to hear a sermon from the Abbot, except on Trinity Sunday, owing to the difficulty of the subject.” Well, I will be preaching on this subject this weekend, and I won't try to explain what the Trinity is. Augustine of Hippo, a fourth century church leader commented on those who try to do this: “If you have understood, then what you have understood is not God.” Instead, just as last week we reflected on not being able to see the Holy Spirit, but seeing what the Holy Spirit did, we can see what a belief in God as Trinity means. It means that God is relational, and that in relation, God loves us.

Our services on Sunday are at the usual times of 7am and 9am, with the 9am services also be streamed on Zoom. The 9am service sheet and the week's Notice Paper are available via the links below. Children's Church continues for term two during the 9am service.

Yours in Christ

Rev'd Timothy
