            Triune Heart of the Universe

The members of the Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit . .  must be maintained as three and understood as different from one another.

Yet the infinite trust and flow between them is so constant, so reliable, so true, and so faithful that they are also completely one. They must be diverse, and they must be one—at the same time.

The glue that preserves both truths at the same time is Infinite Love.

Unity and Diversity

You grant us faith when hearts are troubled,

perseverance when the going is tough,

peace when our spirits are low,

strength enough.

You grant us hope when all seems hopeless,

your forgiveness when tempted to sin,

hands reaching out to embrace,

and welcome us in.

For peace,



and embrace

we give you thanks.


Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;

Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty,

God in three persons, blessed Trinity!
