"Trinity" Sunday – B

"Trinity" Sunday – B

Years B
Isaiah 6:1-8
Psalm 29
Romans 8:12-17
John 3:1-17


It is so obvious that six wings divided by twos equals trinity. So we force our concepts into places where they should fear to go.

For the moment, presume Isaiah and the Psalmist are Trinitarians. Note the outcome and who cares about the labeling - freed from guilt/sin blotted out, strengthened people/blessed with peace.

Note the Trinity in the Romans passage: ourselves - G*D - Christ. Now aren't you excited enough to go share a glory of release with those you come in contact with!

poor Nicodemus
he has lost his metaphorical thinking
and doesn't know where to find it

of childhood he remembers not
only age and size count
that will change, but not yet

flesh gives birth to flesh
spirit to spirit
and both rejoice in each other

where were you born
where will you be born
conceive a womb without walls

life is pregnant with us
should we have eyes to see
and G*D is midwife

so far we are up to 70x7 births
with more to come
for a metaphor never ends

throughout life we play each part
interacting with others
assisting one another's birth process

at the last Nicodemus
finds a 7th next birth
as a bringer of myrrh and aloes
