For many people, one of the greatest challenges with the doctrine of the Trinity is trying to rationalize the idea of a single being that is actually made up of three distinct beings. That’s one of the reasons that so many of our metaphors for the trinity are so unhelpful.
But what if we’re trying to explain the wrong thing? What if it’s not so much the three parts of the trinity that are important, but the relationship between them?
This week at New Wineskins we’ll continue our series on trinitarian spirituality by considering the relational pattern of the trinity and how that pattern is evident from the smallest particles to the most distant galaxies.
Join us this Sunday, June 19, in our New Wineskins Virtual Theology Pub for week 2 of our 3-week examination of the trinity as we discuss the relational nature of trinitarian spirituality and how it informs our theology and the way we interact with other people and the universe we’re part of.
