This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Exodus 19:2−8; Romans 5:6–15; Matthew 9:35–10:8 (9–20)


June 11 – Trinity Sunday – Every offspring of Adam and Eve bears God’s own image (Genesis 1:26-28). Jesus’ coming confirms it with authority and trinitarian majority (Matthew 28:18). This entitles every member of the species to all earth’s possessions and heaven’s blessings. And we get to be ambassadors of the good news (Acts 2:32)! Father, Son, and Spirit, include us in Your dead-raising disciple-making. Amen.
