"Trinity" Sunday – C1

"Trinity" Sunday – C1

Years C
Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31

In verse 30, one word 'amown identifies three different ways of being with G*D: "master worker", "nursing child" or "confident".

It is important to play all three parts, as well as some others. If we find ourselves confined to one relationship with G*D we are as poor as when we have a single relationship with those dear to us.

These can cycle within a day, week, or month. If we lose track of one of these for more than a month, we may have lost it for a goodly amount of time.

It may be time for another refrigerator door chart that indicates a date and the categories of "master worker", "nursing child" and "confident". At the end of each day, reflect back about how often you found yourself in a particular category. At the end of the week, reflect on what this tells you about your relationship with G*D and how it might need to be tweaked.

The same exercise can be done in your relationship to family, community, nation, creation. Again, how healthy/whole is that relationship and what might enhance it?

a Lord has acquired me
at the beginning of this week's cycle
before the details and import
of the days ahead is clarified

assignments have been given
tools and gifts distributed
energy and authority granted
time to get to work

sabbath time comes regularly
nursing us with assurance
pleasure comfort and promise
time to pause and plan

from what we learn
we turn to teach
confident in received confidence
time to refine and evolve

another week established
another day circled
in the face of too much future
we receive rejoicing and delight
