What is the Trinity?
Ask: Is the Trinity kind of confusing?
Say: It's ok if the Trinity is kind of confusing. It's not always easy to understand God. But guess what - we can know what God is like by looking at Jesus! That's why God sent Jesus, so we can come to know God. The Holy Spirit helps us be like Jesus too. So let's try to be like Jesus this week by loving others!
