Reflections on the Sunday’s Readings and Spiritual Practice: May 31, 2015

TrinityThis is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, the first Sunday after Pentecost. The very essence of our triune God is relational and communal – and this God calls us to love and relate in the same way. By doing as Jesus did, we enter into the mystery of Trinity and learn more and more who God is, through the power of the Spirit. May the communion of Creator, Christ and Consoler help us to find unity in the midst of our diversity, and to be more fully Epiphany, a manifestation of God in our time.


  • Deuteronomy 4:32-34, 39-40. Moses solemnly evokes the memory of who God has been for Israel: the one who chose them liberated them, lived with them and formed them into a people.
  • Romans 8:14-17. We are more than God’s chosen people. By the power of the Spirit working within us, we have been made children of God and joint heirs with Christ.
  • Matthew 28:16-20. We are baptized into the Trinity. Jesus reminds us that he is with us always.

Obituary for Dean Pringle

DeanLoyal Dean Pringle, 83, of Louisville passed away peacefully at home on May 16, 2015.

Dean was the elder of two sons of Loyal M. Pringle and Mary B. (Cool) Pringle. He was born in 1932 in Santa Fe, NM where his father managed a grocery store.

Dean graduated from Princeton University in 1953 and then pursued a Master’s Degree in chemical engineering from the University of Colorado in Boulder. He served in the US Army.

He moved to Louisville, KY to work for BF Goodrich Chemical Co. where he was employed in chemical manufacturing for over 40 years. In 1958 he married Mary E. Openhosky of Long Island, NY. Dean and Mary raised five daughters, and now have seven granddaughters and three great-grandchildren. Dean was truly loved for his dedication to his family—parents and brother, his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren—which was his lifelong vocation.

Reflections on the Sunday’s Readings and Spiritual Practice: May 24, 2015

PentecostThis is the Feast of Pentecost, the last Sunday of the Easter Season. The Spirit is given not just to us individually, but to the community of believers. God's Spirit, like God's love, is missionary and relational, and enables us to live with one another in love, with gifts given for the benefit of all. Are we opening our hearts and minds to the Spirit of Truth? How are we called to help bury the dead and support those grieving the loss of a loved one?

The readings:

  • Acts 2: 1-11. All heard the same message in different languages. One faith in many cultural expressions. God's Spirit, like God's love, is missionary; it impels us beyond ourselves and our own concerns.
