God is a Trinidadian
Since the Earthquake in Haiti there has been much debate about natural disasters and Trinidads ability to withstand them. Ira Mathur, has produced a series of clips for the local TV news that talk about how unprepared we are. Personally I think she is an alarmist, but we are all entitled to our views.
In one of her clips, Ira says "and God may have other things to do than be a Trinidadian". Well Ira, I know that you adopted Trinidad as your homeland and that you were not born of these shores, so you maybe don't know.... but God is indeed a Trinidadian. Indeed, he is American, Kittician, Maltese, Indian etc. He is every nationality, and Ethnicity. (He's got the whole world in His hands)
But to bring it home, Chrsitopher Columbus give this island its name. He named it, supossedly for three hills, but he gave it a Holy Name. It is the land of the Blessed Trinity of the Christian faith: Father, Son & Holy Spirit. So yes, God is Trinity, God is Trinidad. And of course He resides in the heart of all who serve him. In Trinidad, there are many who serve Him.
So welcome Ira to this island. Welcome to Gods Land.
