Our Pew Conversations will continue on Trinity Sunday, May 30-31. You are invited to prepare for the conversation by doing the readings for the day, reflecting on them, and even discussing the question with others in advance of Trinity Sunday.

Readings for Trinity Sunday:

  • Dt 4:32-34, 39-40
  • Ps 33:4-5, 6, 9, 18-19, 20, 22
  • Rom 8:14-17
  • Mt 28:16-20

Question for Pew Conversation:
In your life, have you ever given or received love so intensely that you felt something change in your relationship with God? How did it change? (This could be an experience of love in a relationship with someone in your family, a friend, your community, or even with a stranger)

See you in the pews!
