Introduction to the Readings - Trinity Sunday - 2011 June 19

Gen 1:1-2:4a – PS 82 Cor 13:11-13Matt 28:16-20
Intro to the Readings
Our first reading this morning are the first words of Holy Scripture from Genesis One. The story of Creation – God creating – the Breath of God – “God saw that it was good.”
Psalm 8 reflects on the Majesty of God. That God created and is mindful of all that has been created.
The reading from 2 Corinthians 13 is a call to live in harmony with our sisters and brothers. The last sentence we commonly know as the Grace.
From Saint Matthew’s Gospel we have another well know passage which we often refer to as the Great Commission. Simply put this is our purpose – to make disciples – to make disciples.
