First Sunday after Pentecost or Trinity Sunday

In the liturgical year, this week is the first week after Pentecost or the week beginning with Trinity Sunday.  The Trinity is often something of a stumbling block to people – perhaps particularly those outside the church.  For some of these people, Christianity may be seen as some strange religion which worships three gods.  This is quite wrong.  Christianity is completely monotheistic.  There always was and always will be, one God.  Jesus himself said “I and the Father are ONE.”  However, in order to understand the nature of God we need to see God as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Water can be in the form of ice, steam or liquid but it is still water.  A woman can be a manager, mother and wife but she is still exactly the same person.  So it is with God.  God is Father, Son and Spirit but He is still one God.
