The readings for the Trinity Sunday for Year B (see below) affirm that we are members of God’s family and that God desires the whole world to be united into his relationship of love. The second reading tells us that we are truly God’s children. In the gospel Jesus tells his followers to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Discussion topics for this week could include the Trinity, baptism, or what it means to be a child of God.
