Covenant Houston Podcast A weekly Podcast of our Sunday morning proclamations, scripture readings, music and more. #TheseAreOurSacredStories

June 12, 2017  

This Sunday as we moved to ordinary time we celebrated Trinity Sunday. The trinity might seem like an ordinary idea now but it took centuries for the idea as we know it to take hold. We will consider language we use for God. The scripture reading is Matthew 28:16-20. 

Before the proclamation you will hear our musical offering Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major. This performed by a 6 person string group made up of members and friends of Covenant.
