Diversity/The Holy Trinity

Diversity–Trinity
Sunday

Matthew 28:16-28

The concept of the Trinity is a symbol of the diversity of God, a concept of the evolution of God.

The God of the Hebrews was a tribal God, a God who was violent God who was magical, and who repaid with fire. He/She was a reflection of the evolution of humanity. For humanity has been evolving, from our beginnings in the jungle, and I believe that has been a part of God’s plan. We are continually evolving, continually growing.

Through out the Bible the God the Hebrews evolved into a righteous and a God of justice and love, truly becoming God the Father; and the Father in his love for humanity evolved into the person of Jesus, who became in tune with the perfect evolution of love. It lead him to go the cross because of that love; and from the oneness of the Father and the Son, came the power of the Holy Spirit who is God’s all loving arms for humanity.

This one God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, calls us to see the diversity of all of creation and to love and care for that creation.

Throughout my own life I have come to see God not as a miracle giver–I was kicked out of my profession, out on the streets, I have been ill, and am difficult, and in the last year have been in fear really a lot, I lay here some nights and do not sleep in fear, and God does not take away the pain, the fear, the mistakes, but what God in Jesus has done he has  been present with me. And I know that “nothing will ever separate me from the love of God.” I expect no miracles. I expect no miracles for my kids on the street, I expected no miracles when my brother and son were killed, I have expected no miracles when  I have been stabbed and beaten, and am continually threatened, but what I know is that I am not alone, and that is enough.

The Holy Trinity expects miracles out of us, to be his hands, feet, and mouth in the world and to bring healing and wholeness to the world. The Trinity calls us to feed that person in front of you, to fight with all your might for health care, housing, and mental health care, and food for every one, and to give of our money and goods to all have. 

The Holy Trinity represents diversity, where we all are different,  and we accept that diversity–in race, creed, sexual orientation, education, and religion, and in that appreciation work for healing of the Planet.
