Did you know that The Doctrine of The Trinity has created more heretics, schisms and martyrs than any other doctrine?
So it is hardly a surprise that people are reluctant to preach on it.
Fr. Austin Fleming at Concord Pastor blog has posed the question what would you preach on Trinity Sunday ?
A priest in Sacramento asked for tips on how to preach on The Trinity on Facebook and click here to see these answers he got .
But did you know that the Holy Trinity is also the base of carrots, celery, and onions that are used for so many Italian sauces, soups, and stews.
So howz about imparting a culinary theme to your sermon ?
The measured ratio of all three ingredients, how they are chopped, and the extent that they are cooked, all depends on their final destination.
If they are a base for Italian Tomato soup, then they are finely chopped because they will later be partially pureed by a blender.
They also pick up flavour from the fried meat that has been caramelized and set aside to be added back into the dish before simmering.
The flavour is transferred to the Holy Trinity from the scrapings off the bottom of the pan. Pancetta is a great way to impart flavour to the Trinity.
In Louisiana, the Holy Trinity is bell peppers, onion, and celery.
Garlic is the Pope.
It's definitely religious!
Or there is this from Addis Abbaba Cathedral in Ethiopia which depicts the Holy Trinity as identical triplets
but still clearly as separate individuals.
