First:  Genesis 1:1-2:4a  The
The creation story from the earth as a formless void in darkness covered the face of the deep, thru a wind from God sweeping over the waters, God creating and naming light / Day, the sky, the land, plants, animals, seasons, years, the stars, birds, fish, animals, humans - and resting on the 7th day.

Psalm: Daniel 3 - To you glory and praise forever more.

Second: II Corinthians 13:11-13 - Be united .. live in peace ... The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.

Gospel:  Matthew 28:16-20
The eleven disciples went to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them, and worshiped him.   Jesus sends them out to "make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" - and teaches that "I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Trinity - God the three in one.
