Many of us celebrated Father's Day yesterday, whether at church or with our families. However, some of us might have noticed in our church bulletins that it was also Trinity Sunday. Trinity Sunday is a special celebration that was popularised in England in 1162 when Thomas Becket dedicated the first Sunday after Pentecost, the day of his consecration as Archbishop of Canterbury, as a feast day to the Holy Trinity. From England this celebration spread to the rest of the Western Christian world. Some Anglican churches, including in the Diocese of Sabah, number the Sundays between Trinity Sunday and Advent as the "Sundays After Trinity." The doctrine of the Trinity is theologically deep and, for many, difficult to understand, but it is something all Christians have to grapple with in order to understand the uniqueness of our faith. To quote the Athanasian Creed which was traditionally recited every Trinity Sunday in Anglican churches:

"And the catholic faith is this: that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the Essence." (www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/worship-texts-and-resources/book-common-prayer/creed-s...)

Ramai di antara kita yang telah menyambut Hari Bapa kelmarin, sama ada di gereja ataupun bersama keluarga masing-masing. Namun demikian, anda mungkin telah lihat di buletin gereja anda bahawa kelmarin juga merupakan Minggu Triniti. Minggu Triniti merupakan satu perayaan istimewa yang mula disambut secara meluas di England pada tahun 1162 apabila Thomas Becket mendedikasikan hari minggu pertama selepas Pentekosta, iaitu hari beliau ditahbis sebagai Archbisyop Canterbury, sebagai hari perayaan bagi Tritunggal Kudus. Dari England perayaan ini telah merebak ke seluruh dunia Kristian Barat. Sesetengah gereja Anglikan, termasuklah di Diosis Sabah, menghitung hari minggu di antara Minggu Triniti dan Adventus sebagai "Minggu Selepas Triniti." Doktrin Triniti atau Tritunggal memang dalam dari segi teologi dan mungkin susah difahami. Meskipun demikian, ia merupakan satu doktrin yang perlu digulat oleh semua umat Kristian untuk memahami keunikan iman kita. Seperti yang tertulis dalam Pengakuan Iman Athanasius yang secara tradisi dibaca setiap Minggu Triniti di gereja Anglikan:

"Dan iman yang am itu adalah ini: bahwa kita menyembah Allah yang Esa di dalam Ketigaan, dan Ketigaan di dalam Keesaan; Tanpa percampuran pribadi maupun pemisahan substansi." (id.wikisource.org/wiki/Kredo_Athanasius)
