A Trinity Sunday Reflection

A man in the heaving crowd on a railway station in India noticed me, the lone Caucasian on the platform.

He called out to me earnestly seeking engagement.
“One!” he shouted.
I looked at him quizzically. He and his young son intently returned my gaze.
“One!” he asserted, pointing skywards.
I returned the gesture, pointing upwards.
“Yes, One!” I responded with a nod.

The pair broke into wide grins.
Victory asserted over this presumed interloping Trinitarian?
Or rejoicing at a fleeting moment of union with a fellow spiritual descendant of Abraham?

I, an adherent to the mystery of the Trinity, like to think the latter.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
