Collect

 

Almighty and everlasting God,

you have given us your servants grace,

by the confession of a true faith,

to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity

and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:

keep us steadfast in this faith,

that we may evermore be defended from all adversities;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.   Amen.

 

 

Post Communion

 

Almighty and eternal God,

you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

and live and reign in the perfect unity of love:

hold us firm in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways

and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory,

who are three Persons yet one God,

now and for ever.   Amen.

Readings for Today

 

Isaiah 6: 1-8;  Isaiah’s first courageous act was believing that he really saw the Lord; his second act was responding to the commission.  From there he would never look back.

 

Romans 8: 12-17;  The life of faith is not for the fainthearted.  Paul warns against falling back into fear.  The antidote is summoning the boldness to believe: “Abba! Father!”

 

John 3: 1-17;  Head knowledge takes us a long way, but faith is mandatory for understanding heavenly things.  The fullness of Jesus’ divine nature can only be received by faith, yet the Trinity makes rational sense of the interrelatedness of all creation.
