The Strong Name of the Trinity

The Strong Name of the Trinity

You can’t fit the Almighty into your intellectual categories. God just refuses to fit. Which may be the whole point, after all.

It’s not even like trying to put a square peg in a round hole, or a round peg in a square hole. It’s that the peg and the hole keep changing shape, and we are not going to be able to pin them down.

So maybe understanding the Trinity isn’t even the right goal. Maybe it’s not about explanations at all. Maybe the only way to approach God is with awe. Or curiosity. Or gratitude.

Or silence.

We can’t think our way into this. But maybe, just maybe, we can feel it. Sense it. Live inside it.
