Trinity Sunday, May 27, 2018, First Trinity Lutheran Church – Walking the Trinity Trail
A forest Ranger once described the most common question that visitors to the park ask the forest rangers. Many people, he said, come to the park to hike one of the beautiful trails that wander through the forest, trails designed to display the magnificent trees and plants, to let the hikers encounter the array of wildlife in the forest, and to take hikers on to hilltops for breathtaking views of the countryside. But the most frequent question that visitors ask the forest rangers is not “Where does this trail go?” or “How long does it take to hike it?” or “Or is the trail difficult” but instead “Excuse me, can you tell me where the trail starts?” It makes sense. No matter how lovely or breathtaking a trail may be, if you don’t know where the trail starts, you can’t hike it.
