God in Three Persons: Trying to Make Sense Out of Mystery

God in Three Persons: Trying to Make Sense Out of Mystery

The Trinity is not something that the clever theologian comes up with as a result of hours spent in the theological laboratory, after which he or she can return to announce that they’ve got God worked out now, the analysis is complete, and here is God neatly laid out on a slab.  The only time they laid God out on a slab he rose again three days afterwards.  

I, for one, am grateful that we live with a God who is mystery. God who is eternal – forever - bigger than all of life. God who is love, so loving that God came to this world as flesh and blood, a real human being who knows all my faults and flaws and forgives me just the same. God who is Spirit, as close as breath itself, giving me courage every step along the way. God who is one in three and three in one, as if community is the very essence of God.
