                                                                 Dear Members and Friends,

Trinity Sunday comes along in June this year.    Most Holy Days remember an event in the life of Jesus.   This is the only occasion when we lift up a church teaching.    We reflect on this complicated idea that we worship one God, but we speak of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.   We look to our creeds to say more about that mystery of God as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.    The Creation story in the first chapter of Genesis is usually read.  

Einstein once remarked that “the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.”   The world can be understood by way of order and reason.   The universe discloses itself by mathematics and physical theorems.   What at first is beyond our understanding and seems random or arbitrary eventually becomes clear.    As we explore the world around us through science and theory we engage our Creator and learn the marvelous wonders of this gift that has been entrusted to us.  

When I was in college, I was able to hear George Wald speak.   He was a Nobel Prize winning scientist who taught biology at Harvard.   He would give a 45 minute lecture on some intricate detail of biology in plant or animal.   Then, for 15 minutes he reflected about what this taught him about God, our Creator.    It was thrilling to hear this brilliant scientist open up a whole new understand of how to think about Creation and our place in it.   

As we watch our world turn green with new life, may the wonders and mysteries of creation draw us to awe and praise of the One who still creates and blesses us every day.

Yours on the journey,

Pastor Schlauderaff
