Encountering the triune God

May 26th, 2021

“Hey, it’s Trinity Sunday. Hold onto your hats. We are about to do a deep dive into one of the most complex, wonderful of Christian beliefs…We’re going to talk about God this Sunday called Trinity, not about you,” begins Will Willimon, professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke Divinity School, acclaimed pastor, and author of over sixty books. Willimon says, “All of this Sunday’s scripture, [John 3:1-17, Romans 8:12-17, Psalm 29, and Isaiah 6:1-8], like most of scripture, depicts people being encountered by God.” What does it mean to be encountered by God? Listen as Willimon explains how “all three, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are aspects of, characteristics of, the truth about the identity and being of the one God who reaches out to us in three ways.”

This sermon is from A Sermon for Every Sunday, a series of lectionary-based video sermons designed for use in worship, Bible study, small groups, Sunday school classes or for individual use.
