When we say God is the triune God, we are saying something about who God is beyond, before, and after the universe: that there is community within God. Our experience of this is reflected in Paul's words today. When we pray to God as Jesus prayed to his Abba (an everyday, intimate parental address), the Spirit prays within us, creating between us and God the same relationship Jesus has with the one who sent him.
It's going to be a great day!

On Thursday, June 11, hundreds of hand-made, ceramic bowls, created and donated by local artist and children, will be on offer to the public for a $20 (or 2/$30) contribution. After selecting a bowl people are invited to share a meal of soups and chili made by local chefs and foodies. There will even be vegetarian and vegan options! 100 percent of all contributions will go directly to the First Trinity Kid’s Activity Fund.
Contact the church office at welcome@firsttrintiychicago if you would like to purchase raffle tickets ahead of the event or if you are interested in donating soup or bread for the event.
This summer, the kids are raising money to attend Lutherdale Bible Camp, in Wisconsin.
Tri-Sox I have the tickets! If you have paid for a ticket you may pick it up from Rene in the office at any time. If you have not paid for a ticket, but signed up, you may pay for it and pick it up at any time. If you have not signed up, or paid for a ticket but want one, talk to Rene in the office... there may be a couple of extras. Thanks!
