Abbeycast: Relating without rivalry – a podcast for Trinity Sunday

Jun 07, 2020, 07:30 AM

The Holy Trinity can sometimes sound a bit like a mathematical problem (‘Three in One, and One in Three’), but this podcast explores whether it is, in fact, a key to understanding not just God, but ourselves, and the kind of relationships for which we are made.

A 19-minute service of prayers, reading, address, music and blessing recorded this week in the 13th century Chapter House in the East Cloister – originally a meeting place where the monks gathered with the abbot to pray and discuss the day’s business.

Introduced by The Reverend Canon Dr James Hawkey, Canon Theologian

Address by The Reverend Mark Birch, Minor Canon and Precentor

Reader: Dame Cressida Dick, The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service

Introduction: Canon Hawkey
Reading:  Matthew 28: 16–20 Dame Cressida Dick
Address: The Reverend Mark Birch
Anthem: John Sheppard Libera nos, salva nos
Prayers/Blessing: Canon Hawkey

Music: Performed by the Choir of Westminster Abbey conducted by James O’Donnell (with kind permission of Hyperion Records).

This podcast was recorded with all contributors observing social distancing.
