Trinity Sunday Quotes

June 20, 2011

A man named Don Simms relates a story about his young nephew, who was overheard to say, reassuring his sister, “You don’t have to be afraid of the Holy Ghost. It’s just God with a sheet over His head.”
(Don Simms, in As Kids See It, 2002)

Our narrow thoughts can no more comprehend the Trinity in Unity than a nutshell will hold all the water in the sea.
(Thomas Watson)

Love and faith are at home in the mystery of the Godhead. Let reason kneel in reverence outside.
(A. W. Tozer)

A woman heard her three year old son exclaim when he saw a man waiting to cross the street in the pouring rain, “Look, Mom, that man is understanding his umbrella.”
(Helen Hughes, in As Kids See It, 2002)

The Christian “story” may be told in an indefinite number of ways, but … it centres round three “mighty acts” of God – the creation, the Incarnation, the giving of the Holy Spirit. These three acts correspond not merely to three modes of our experience, but to three modes of the divine Being. Therefore the whole Christian story is epitomized in the triumphant declaration of the believing Church that Father, Son, and Holy Ghost together are worshipped and glorified, one God blessed for ever. Nor can anyone deny this confession and accept the story which is the Gospel, the Christian revelation.
(Nathaniel Micklem, in What is the Faith?)
