(May 26, 2013) The idea of God as Trinity is complex and hard to make sense of. Ultimately, I think it’s unimportant– unless it can tell us something about God and something about how we are to live. I think it does this: by describing God as complex and in relationship and community, we too can see that the interconnected messy dance of our lives is holy and beautiful (Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31).
In my feeble attempts to explain the Trinity, I’m sure I’m guilty of committing the heresies of modalism and/or partialism. Oh well; I wouldn’t be the first. (silly video)
