Who am I?

When Jesus asked His followers (Mark 8:27), “Who do people say I am?” He received various answers as different people saw Him differently. I think Jesus would get a similar answer if He asked the same question today. However, to ensure we get that answer correct, the Church, in its wisdom, has formulated the answer for us and called it ‘a Creed’. A Creed, by definition, is a set of fundamental beliefs. It is often seen in a religious sense as a form of persuasion or conviction.
Since a youngster I have memories of attending church and in the early days reading The Nicene Creed word for word from my prayer book. These days, those attending get the benefit of overhead screens where you can literally follow the bouncing ball and trot out the words along with everyone else.
The Apostles Creed is used today and particularly to interrogate the sponsor who responds on behalf of the child at a baby’s Baptism. It summarizes the basic tenets of faith and serves as a confession of belief (according to Dr Google). Different Christian denominations use this Creed but have made some minor changes to the wording to reflect more the specific beliefs of their religion. The current format was first used in the 5th Century although versions of it can be traced back to the 2nd Century.
Wikipedia gives a background to why the Nicene Creed was formulated in 325AD. This Creed is a more precise and detailed statement that addresses more succinctly the identity of Jesus the Christ.
When Jesus asked His followers the question who people thought He was, I think he knew the mixed response he would get. It was as if this answer was secondary to the question that followed. “But who do YOU say I am.”
If Jesus were to ask us, individually, the same questions today, we could trot out the Creed because we have learnt it off by heart and this is what the Church tells us we must believe. But how would we respond to the second question, “Who do YOU think I am.”
As we have all led different lives, we have had many differing experiences that have helped formulate, in our own minds, where our faith has brought us and what form our individual relationship with our maker exists at this point in our lives.
Whatever our individual situation might be, to answer that second question, I believe it would be helpful for our own journey if each of us were to write a personal Creed (for your own eyes only). We could outline just who our God is to us and what we believe is supporting our faith relationship. It can be as simple as a few dot points. Perhaps, for the record, we could also document those areas of our faith we might be questioning in our own minds.
The big advantage of a document of this kind is that it needs to be reviewed. (My suggestion is once a year) and where our thinking or understanding has changed, we can make the necessary variations to our ‘revised’ personal Creed. If we were to keep each year’s Creed, we will probably be surprised in the years to come as we read back over our journey, how our understanding has changed as a person and how our relationship with our God has matured.

The link

We are but a speck of dust in the soil of God’s human creation. Yet we are considered so important, we are each individually created in God’s image (I have carved you on the palm of my hand).

At the birth of the smallest ant, the growth in each blade of grass, the development of everything that lives and even to the solar system which is still being discovered, our God injects life and love. (After creation God saw that it wqs good, very good and the Spirit breathed life into the Father’s creation)

Trying to understand God is beyond our human comprehension, beyond imagination, for our God exists in another dimension beyond humanity and yet is part of humanity (“I will be with you for all time”). It is as if our God is a sea of love that constantly feeds the creation He classified as ‘Very Good’. Monty Python attempted to define the Almighty by the phrase “Oh God you are so big.” Others have tried a more definitive approach, but all with only broad vague attempts.

While we can see our God at work in nature, in our world around us, in ourselves and in others, it seems no one has physically seen God, or The Father, as Jesus referred to him in male human terms. (“You cannot see My face, for no one can see Me and live.” Exodus 33:20)

With all these seemingly impossible attempts at a human understanding of something invisible and beyond our comprehension, I wonder why then should we bother wasting our time trying to understand something of this magnitude?

The Disciples with Jesus questioned the concept as well, “show us The Father,” they asked? And that’s when the penny dropped. The response from Jesus “If you know me, you know The Father”. “The Father and I are one.” “If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Later on in John’s Gospel we read how Jesus prayed. “Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us.

So, that’s the LINK. If we want to know and love our God, we need to learn and understand as much about Jesus as we can, for He came to show us the way to The Father. I cling onto what Jesus said to the doubting Thomas after he made Thomas touch his wounds so he would doubt no more. “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”

Even though the New Testament Gospels were written many years after the death of Jesus and were designed to be understood by differing groups of people, this is what we have. While some scholars might argue about the accuracy of various interpretations of Scripture, there is enough material available for each of us to get a deep understanding of who, in our own mind, Jesus was, what the message was He was attempting to impart and how we can absorb this within our own understanding.

I question why we should be so pedantic and waste our time arguing about words and possible alternate meanings to what Jesus had to say. Let’s spend our time creating a closer personal relationship with Jesus the Christ who is available to each one of us 24/7.

It is not just a matter of talking or praying to the Jesus in our lives. We need to listen as well, for I believe Jesus responds to us in our thoughts, in our dreams and through other people in our lives. So often when ‘so-called’ coincidences happen for us, a word of thanks to our friend is a good idea.

If we can but trust the Jesus of our relationship, we will be guided in our actions and deliberations. We don’t have to be all alone in this world, totally reliant on ourselves to survive each day. If we can just give the ego a rest for a bit and trust the Divine Presence in our lives to guide us, we can say goodbye to serious worry and anxiety and become a much happier person as a result.

Enjoying Valentine’s Day with love

Valentine’s Day is seen as a day to celebrate romance, love and devotion. It is celebrated in honour of St. Valentine, a third-century Roman Saint associated with love and togetherness.

I feel in recent times the day has become more commercial with gifts of chocolates and flowers being the main choice of couples vying for attention and acceptance.  Sales of expensive jewellery also peak at this time due to those who can afford a more lavish approach.  It is my belief that the amount expended is often based on the perceived expectations of the receiver.

Maybe, it isn’t really necessary to spend lavishly just to impress your special ‘Valentine.’ Perhaps, you could just enjoy spending quality time together in each other’s company. Being with someone you are in love with and being loved by that someone in return, would be a beautiful way of celebrating togetherness.

My favourite quote for Valentine’s Day comes from Judy Garland. She once said, “For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart.  It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul”.

Yet, it seems the universal language of love is one we Australians often tend to shy away from. For some, it just doesn’t seem to be ‘the done thing’ to be seen embracing your partner in public.

However, the simple act of walking together hand in hand can say so much for a relationship as there is an energy that unites the couple, where a word need not even be spoken.

A wise person once said, “Love is a decision, not just a feeling”. And, when you think about it, feelings can come and go like the weather, but our decision to love one another is a commitment and survives all our feelings, frustrations and anxieties. While for some, this commitment has maintained their relationship throughout the years, sadly, this is not the case for others.

Someone who is no longer with their partner, for whatever reason, special occasions like Valentines Day, birthdays and anniversaries can be sad days. We need to be aware of those in this category and if possible, just be there for them during these tough times.

As we grow in age and wisdom, each of us has a different story to relate about our individual journey.  Our stories are depicted on a canvas that tells of hardships and pain, courage and perseverance, strength and endurance, of deep sorrow as well as times of great joy.

As we travel along the pathways of our lives, it is important we reach out to those we meet who are in need.  For, as Oscar Hammerstein once said, “Love in your heart isn’t put there to stay. Love isn’t love till you give it away.” There is no doubt there will be times when we ourselves will find the help and support we need on those occasions when others reach out to us.

Today, there are many Australians, both young and elderly doing it tough and there is precious little incentive for them to celebrate occasions such as Valentine’s Day. So, while the florists might be charging an arm and a leg for long stemmed red roses for those who can afford such luxuries, we need to be thankful if we have a loving partner, or friend with which we can share this occasion.

Perhaps we could consider maintaining our love relationship by just doing little things for each other on a daily basis, without seeking to receive anything in return. This would let us celebrate Valentine’s Day every day of the year instead of just on the 14th February.

Triggers to the Trinity

Because we get so busy in our day-to-day existence, we might often neglect to remember that The Divine Presence is always with us. There are many actions which we repeatedly perform which could be used as ‘Triggers to the Trinity.’ Once established, these ‘Triggers’ could become an automatic reaction for recognising the presence of our God in our life.

          Having encased the ‘Trigger’ in our mind, hopefully, it will live in our memory and be an on-going aid to strengthening our faith. In determining what ‘Triggers’ we might use for this purpose, sometimes it may involve a considerable amount of imagination on our part.

  As an example, you might recall my story from 11 October called ‘It’s About Time’ where the red ‘AM’ light on my clock radio triggered a reaction for me. Another trigger I have found occurs when I use electrical appliances. These all have one thing in common. There is an electrical lead attached that has a 3 pin plug at the end.

          This lead, when plugged into a power source, enables the appliance to perform and provide the service for which it has been manufactured. Without being ‘plugged in’, the appliance seems of little or no value.

If you were to unravel the insulated material from the power lead on these appliances you generally find three wires encased in different coloured insulation. While the colours of these do tend to vary from country to country, there is an accepted colour combination which indicates the wire’s purpose. The blue and brown wires provide the electrical circuit and the green wire is called the earth.

In my imagination I see the blue wire as representing our Heavenly Father in the blue of the heavens above at work in the creation workshop. The brown would be the Holy Spirit, whose job it is to breathe life into the Father’s creations and the green wire would be the Son, whose role was to come to our earth and show us the way to the Father.

          If we were to see ourselves as an electrical appliance, then to obtain our full potential in our life and operate as our maker intended, we would need to be ‘plugged in’ to a power source and switched on.

  For me, the imaginative ‘Trigger to the Trinity’ occurs whenever I plug in an electrical appliance.

Death is a reality

Recently, I attended a funeral church service for a young man who had taken his own life.  It was a sad occasion for us all and especially for the young man’s family.  When the 83 year old priest spoke, I seriously wondered what he could possibly say that might bring comfort to the family and friends present.

His words were a revelation to me. He recounted many of the good things the young man had performed during his life for his family and the community and concentrated his talk on the ways he had helped and served others.

The priest spoke of a loving God who had been with the young man throughout his short life and who, he believed, would never abandon him because of a serious mistake he made at the end.  He recounted how Jesus had already died for our sins and wanted only to love us into eternity. I left that church with a better understanding of a God who loves us, rather than one who sits in judgement of our faults and failings.

Since that day I have often thought back over that experience and have come to the realisation that death should not be feared and that it is possible to actually embrace the thought of an eternal life. Death is something we should openly talk about.  It is seen by many as a taboo subject and if we raise the concept in a conversation, we are considered to be morbid and often advised to pick on a brighter subject.

Some people just see it as inevitable and prefer to put it out of their mind until faced with its reality.  Others either don’t believe in life after death or prefer not to think it might exist.  While others are just plain scared about the thought of being judged for what they have done during their life.

If there is a genuine sorrow in our hearts for the things in our life we could have done better, then our God must see and understand this. There is no doubt we will be judged after death. A look at scripture can give us the answer (Matt.25:31-46).  Without wishing to make this process seem too simplistic, it appears that the only criteria we will need to address is the answer to the Lord’s question, “What have you done for me”.

Our loving God accepts our human failings, but certainly would have a long memory when it comes to keeping a record of the ‘things we have done for Him’.  Let us try not to fear death, for death can be the beginning of an exciting new awakening for us in a place that has been waiting for us since we were created.

Crying in the wilderness

My stories all tend to revolve around ‘faith’, which according to the dictionary definition is a ’confidence or trust in a person or thing.’ I believe in a God who loves us but maybe we should all consider how we, in our mind’s eye, actually see God.

I grew up, in an era being told to fear a God who would make us pay for our sins and could have us burning in the fires of hell forever. Then, in the same breath, we are told of a God who loves us. No doubt we were, and many are, still left in confusion about the whole Godly situation.

It is hard to rid our minds of some of our past indiscretions, bad decisions, and even times when we have given some of the 10 Commandments a serious nudge. While these might still cause us concern, they can also provide barriers for many of us to progress into a deeper relationship with our God.

We see ourselves as unworthy of being loved by a God who we have deliberately shunned on many occasions. To attempt to start up a new relationship with our Maker would be hypocritical, as in our opinion, God wouldn’t want to shower blessings on someone, who at times in the past, has done things we still regret.

We probably all fit into this category in one shape or form. However, let’s just STOP right here and now. Imagine ourselves as being on the shores of the Jordan River where John the Baptist was preparing people for when Jesus would start his public ministry. John used water to explain how anyone who was prepared to reform of their wrongdoings could be washed clean and ready for the coming of Jesus.

Jesus was to tell us “I come that you should have life and have it to the full”. While we were created in a pure form, we were also given free will to make our own decisions. With age and wisdom some of these decisions might not have been wise, yet we can prepare to come closer to our God by doing as John suggested.

By reforming from our past wrongdoings, we need to feel or express sincere regret or remorse. This is a personal decision John was asking those on the banks of the Jordan to make, and one we are being asked to make today.

John used water to symbolise freedom from those times in the past when we have not always done the right thing. He spoke of ‘The One’ who would come and baptise them with the Holy Spirit. If we do as John has suggested we can remove those nagging thoughts that might haunt us from our past, and let the Holy Spirit open our hearts to the love that is available from a God who wants us to enjoy life.

This then is certainly not a retributive God but one who only has love to give us.

Electrical appliances

As you walk through the front door of your local appliance retailer, there are row upon row of electrical appliances before your eyes. They sit, shiny and new, waiting for you to make your selection. Those that are not battery operated, all have one thing in common. There is an electrical lead attached to the appliance which has a 3 pin plug at the other end.

This lead, when plugged into a power source, enables the appliance to perform and provide the service for which it has been manufactured. Without being ‘plugged in’, the appliance seems of little or no value. Sure, you can turn the fan blades by hand, but you can’t receive the cool air that emanates from an electric fan when it is in full operation. Similarly, you can roll a circular saw blade across some wood and all you get are teeth marks in the wood.

If you were to unravel the insulated material from the power lead on these appliances you generally find three wires encased in different coloured insulation. While the colours of these do tend to vary from country to country, there is an accepted colour combination which indicates the wire’s purpose. The blue and brown wires provide the electrical circuit and the green wire is called the earth.

If we were to see ourselves as an electrical appliance, then to obtain our full potential in our life and operate as our maker intended, we would need to be ‘plugged in’ to a power source. Of course, without a power source, we could perform, but like the fan, we would be restricted by the strength of our own power to achieve.

If we could imagine our arm as an electrical lead containing the three wires necessary for a connection to our power source, then the blue wire could be seen as our heavenly Father in the blue of the heavens above in the creation workshop. The brown would be the Holy Spirit, whose job it is to breathe life into the Father’s creations and the green wire would be the Son, whose role was to come to our earth and show us the way to the Father.

Our fingers would be the 3 pin plug which connects to the power supply provided by the hand of our God reaching out for us to make the physical connection.

No longer would we need to languish on the shelf of life, gathering dust and offering what, to many, could only be seen as a restricted personal contribution to society, based on our own egotistical power supply. At best, our existence might only be classified as having minimal intrinsic value, due to our concentration on self-fulfillment and a strong desire for personal power and riches.

By ensuring we check our connection daily with our God, we could become the dynamic electrical appliance for which we were meant to be by our maker. We would put other’s needs before our own. We would choose love rather than hate, revenge and self-indulgence. In addition, we would have available to us a lifetime service warranty should we develop connection problems, with any necessary repairs being provided free of charge.

The Spirit of Jesus

It is easy to recall the James Bond movies where at the beginning, 007 flicks his hat across the office to see it delicately lob on the empty spike at the top of the hat stand, as he walks past the smiling Miss Moneypenny and enters M’s office.

After being given his task to save the world from some imminent danger, M accompanies 007 to the basement where the Secret Service have developed a collection of devices James will require to help him fulfill his mission to save mankind.

Years earlier Jesus arrived at the River Jordan where John was baptising and sought also to be baptised by him. John was reticent at first, saying it was he who should be the one being baptised by Jesus. But, at Jesus’ insistence he relented so he could be seen by the onlookers as doing ‘all that righteousness demands.’ (Matt. 3:15).

“As soon as Jesus was Baptised, he came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and the Spirit of God descended like a dove and came down on him. And a voice spoke from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the beloved; my favour rests on him’”. (Matt 3:16-17).

The comparison between the two above events is similar. Jesus had come to live among us to save mankind from itself. His Baptism was the beginning of his public mission. But before he was to commence his work, The Father gave him the means to assist him with the fulfillment of his role. God’s gift was not a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power (2 Timothy 1:7). It is easy to recognise the gifts of the Spirit Jesus possesses and uses as he fulfills his public ministry. These gifts listed in Romans 12:6-8 are prophesying, serving, teaching, encouraging, giving, leadership, and mercy.

James Bond always seems to be able to escape as the baddy’s world domination empire explodes on the screen. 007 lives to fight another day. Jesus on the other hand accepted the pain, suffering and death metered out to Him in order that we might have eternal life.

The Father’s gift of the Spirit to the disciples at Pentecost was evidenced, not only by what appeared to be tongues of fire resting on their heads, but by the affect it had on their behaviour (Acts 2:3).  Because of our Baptism, the Spirit has an intimate internal contact with our lives, for it is the Spirit that helps us in our weakness and assists us when we pray (Romans 8:26).

There is no doubt in my mind it was the Spirit assisting Jesus in the garden as he desperately prayed to the Father. Some Bible translations refer to the Spirit as “interceding for us with groans too deep for words.”

Jesus on the cross, aware that his life was about to come to an end, was determined his final words would be heard by all those in the vicinity as he summoned all his strength to call out in a loud voice. We read in Luke 23:46 that Jesus’ final words were those from the Psalm of David (31:5), “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”  Matthew 27:50 refers to Jesus as “Yielding up his spirit.”

While most scholars say this was Jesus surrendering his human life (His spirit), It is my understanding that it was Jesus offering the Spirit back to The Father who had gifted it to him at Baptism, for His mission was now complete.

Why are we here?

I recall as a youngster at the local Catholic school being introduced to the Catholic Catechism. According to my teachers, this was a book that had the answers to all of life’s questions. (If only).

To ensure we were well grounded in what this book had to say we had to learn the contents by heart. After 80 years I still remember some of these answers today.

One of the questions that has always intrigued me was, “Why did God make me?”  and the answer was, “God created me to know, love and serve Him here on earth and to be happy with Him forever in heaven.”

In thinking about that answer, I often ask myself, if that was why we were created by God. then what is God doing about bringing this plan to fruition? Does that mean we can just float through life enjoying ourselves and know that we will all end up in heaven anyway? I don’t think so!

Maybe there just happens to be a few stipulations to which we need to follow in order to prove our worthiness, before being allowed through the heavenly gates. Jesus spent the last 3 years of His life giving us the ‘Good News’ and showing us ‘the way to the Father’. Prior to His arrival the prophets of old had also been given insights into how we needed to live our life in the way God intended. The Ten Commandments put it in writing, but still Jesus had to come to explain what was required in clear terms that could be understood down through the ages.

So, if we have been given the gift of Ffaith and we believe in Jesus, we at least know what is required of us as a Christian. My concern is for all those who don’t believe in God and treat life as a personal journey that ends at our death.

While Jesus told us we had to take His message to all nations, there are many who don’t want to hear it or accept it. So, what is God doing about getting them ‘to be happy with Him in heaven?’

There are many non-believers who lead good and loving lives and must surely be recompensed for their efforts when they meet their maker. Sadly, there are also many who have the gift of faith and misuse their lives to seek personal greed, power and fulfillment.

I don’t believe we are just created, placed on this earth through the miracle of our birth and then left to our own devices to live out our life in whatever way we want. This goes against my understanding of the basic reason for our creation.

How then, one might ask, will so many of God’s creation get to be with God as intended after they die? It is my belief our God uses others of His creation to support and help those whose lives are leading them away from Him.

As part of the New Covenant Jesus instituted at the Last Supper, He said He would be with us for all eternity.  This means that if we believe in Jesus, we believe His Spirit dwells with us. For those who don’t believe, surely, they will not be abandoned, but how will they get the chance to recognise that God exists and loves them despite their non-belief?

Angels get many mentions in Scripture as being spiritual entities created to adore and worship their creator. While there doesn’t seem to be any proof that we each have a guardian angel, many believe in the theory that God has given each of us an angel to protect and guide us.

So often many have said they sense the presence of past family members in their lives when they perform specific actions. I don’t believe these sensory feelings should be discounted. I have a suspicion that friends and family members who have cared for us during their lives here on earth are called by God to assist in the saving of souls before the return of Jesus Christ at the end of our world as we know it.

I base my theory on a recent experience where my constant prayer and fasting over a period of over 18 months for my sick friend seemed to be of no avail as his condition gradually worsened.  Recently he was called from this earth by the God to whom I had been earnestly seeking my friend’s healing daily over this lengthy period.

To be honest, I was devastated, for I have read the scripture verses about praying with faith for the sick and they will be healed. In my frustration, I turned to a friend who is a hospital Chaplin. Her immediate reaction was to chastise me. “Who are you” she said, “to be telling God to obey your wishes.”

This set me thinking how my prayer was very specific indeed. While I should have realised God would be well aware of my wishes, I needed to be prepared to understand that God has the final say and determines how best my prayer will be used. According to James 5:15, healing can mean more than physical healing, it can be pardoning grace which heals the soul.

In being upset and frustrated, I was only thinking of myself and the fact that my own wishes weren’t met. This lesson I will carry into my future prayers for friends and family. With all my prayers for the healing of my friend seemingly not having the effect I sought, I wondered how God had used these prayers and for what purpose He had called my friend from this life.

I wondered if maybe there was someone alive in this world whose life experiences might be similar to those of my friend and who needed help from someone who understands them to survive. If the soul of my friend had passed into the spirit world, he may have been given the task of helping this person find God. My friend would have Guardian Angel status.

I know this might be a wild theory to some, but I like to think that in the intervening period between when we die and when Jesus comes again, we might still provide some useful purpose in helping others fulfill the Catechism response concerning why we are here.

To support my theory, I would like to recommend that each household have an Honour Board on the wall. The type of Honour Board you see in some towns and in cemeteries containing lists of soldiers from that area who gave their lives during the wars and confrontations in the past. Its purpose is to remind those still living to maintain the memory of those who have died.  

My Honour Board would contain the names of close family members and friends who have died and who, during their lives, influenced our family members in some positive way. It would be a way of not forgetting those who we choose to list on the Board, and through story-telling, would assist us in ensuring the younger family members maintain an understanding of the rich heritage that has fashioned their individual families down through the years.

In remembering those on our Honour Boards we could also consider the possibility that they each may well have been given a heavenly task of supporting others. Their role might well be strengthened by prayer support from those loved ones they left behind.

Of course, if my theory is just a fantasy, any prayer we offer up will not go unanswered and will be used in whatever way our God best determines.

I’m Peter Mack and that’s how I feel.

The Trinity Love Company

It is rumoured that Saint Augustine, when asked to define the Holy Trinity, used an example of a small child attempting to transfer the whole ocean to a small bucket with a spoon. Such was the enormity of attempting to understand the Trinity.

Yet a simple organisation chart based on modern management techniques might well make this ‘mystery’ a little easier to understand.

But first, there are a few basic areas that need defining and a few generally accepted theories that need explanation. GOD – The Source of all Goodness – Always was – Is – Always will be. To emphasise this point, on the chart GOD is surrounded by a ring which has no defined beginning and no end.

If we look at Genesis 1:26 where God was in the process of making the world then it is interesting to note “God said, ‘Let US make man in OUR own image, in the likeness of OURSELVES’”.

It is my belief God was speaking as part of the Trinity which accounts for the plural use of ‘us’ and ‘ourselves’. Thus, the Trinity existed before ever this world existed. There is no reference to how, or if, the Trinity actually had a beginning. Hence, my understanding is that God ‘always was’.

So, let’s refer to GOD – The Source of all Goodness, overall, as a ‘Love Company’, for want of a better title. And that organisation has three equal managerial components who together form the nucleus of the Trinity Love Company.

There is the Manager (Engineering and Science) responsible for creation and the dispersing of love and forgiveness, referred to as ‘The Father’

There is the Manager (Human Resources) responsible for training, redemption and trust, referred to as ‘The Word’ or by His human name of ‘Jesus’.

There is the Manager (Operations) responsible for ongoing maintenance and support referred to as ‘The Holy Spirit.

The combination of the three managers work directly through you and me and support us in possessing Faith and Grace, Belief and Hope. For our part we are required to contribute Love and Caring, Good Works and Prayer.

The Trinity Love Company’s general office work is conducted by Guardian Angels who, by virtue of their name, also have the security role. Individual appointees were selected for each one of us at our birth

Guardian Angels are also responsible for securing the connection with other Saints with whom we wish to relate at a specific time or for a specific purpose. There are direct lines to Mary and others we might require on a regular basis, such as St Anthony, when we lose things, St Joseph when we need assistance with our work and other family member Saints who are well versed in our specific needs.

One of the major hurdles the Company constantly must face in its day-to-day operations is that each of us has been given a free will to make our own decisions that affect ourselves and our lives. But we also have been given a ‘conscience’ so we each can determine the difference between good and evil.

Sadly, some of us don’t always give the Trinity Love Company the recognition it deserves. Some prefer to operate their own salvation show, but quite often reach out to the Company when their own connections abandon them.

It certainly is a busy Love Company and amazingly all aspects of the operation are available to each one of us at any time of the day or night. The Managers and staff are always willing to assist us upon request.

So, let’s ensure we constantly keep the Company’s presence foremost in our mind and let’s not forget to always thank them for their work on our behalf.
