 Simple ways to walk with our children in faith, hope & love
Our God of love and relationships
 
Trinity Sunday celebrates the central mystery of Christian faith: God is love, God is relationship. God is one, yet three (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). We do not believe in three separate gods; rather, we believe in one God, revealed as three divine persons in perfect unity. The loving relationships in our lives offer a glimpse into this mystery. Think about your family, friendships, teamwork, participation in community… For the relationship to be fully alive, we need to go beyond 'two', to 'three' (e.g., a baby born, a mission shared, a purpose or outreach that takes us beyond the sum of 'two'). As you go through your week, encourage your children to point to examples of our loving, lifegiving God at work in our world.
Faith steps at home
 
Celebrate
Spice up a family meal on Trinity Sunday (7 June 2020) with ''trinitarian' symbols! e.g. triple-chocolate cake; Neapolitan ice-cream; triple-cheese macaroni; or a collection of three candles. Or bake cookies that have been cut in the shape of circles and triangles.
 
Pray
Teach your child to make the Sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. This is trinitarian prayer in action.
 
Remember
God is love, God is relationship.
