The Trinity is a doctrine that has been an integral part of Christianity for over 19 centuries. Throughout the ages people, groups, councils have tried to help us understand the “Blessed Trinity”. But yet in so many ways we have fallen short, and the doctrine of the trinity has been something we’ve been told is foundational to the Christian faith; “but don’t try to understand it, just believe it.”
Our lives are created and sustained in the mystery of the Trinity. There is value in moving beyond just believing. There is value in embracing and experiencing the awe-filled mystery that is the Blessed Trinity! Through the Trinitarian nature of God, God speaks, “You are my beloved!”
In the forward to Father Richard Rohr’s book, The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation, William Paul Young writes:
“There is a rising rumble, like a midnight train approaching through the wastelands. Not only do we hear it from the distance, but also we can feel it if we put our hands on the ground or in the water or in the torn bread and poured-out wine. The rumor in the deep places of our souls is that there is a party going on, and we can scarce trust our invitation. Could there ever be a toast raised to us? Might a hand reach out and lead us into the divine dance, whispering in our ears that we were always made for this? And so we wait for the kiss, the breath in and out that awakens our sleeping heart to life. We were made for this, utterly found within Relentless Affection!” (Page 21)
Encounter and experience the beautiful reality of the Trinity, we were made for this! Invited to the party we are fully immersed in the mystery of God, three in one; flowing through the God-head discovering what it truly means to be God’s beloved. I look forward to immersing ourselves in this mystery as we discover what it means to be a part of “the flow”, as we lean into the dance, participants in God’s acts of new creation! See you in Church.
