The Trinity teaches us that our identity only exists in community. The universal gives meaning to the particulars and vice versa.
The Covenant is how particulars and the universal have a relationship.
The Covenant is a relationship of love in which each party commits himself to sacrifice and self-denial for the blessing of the others.
Creation is a symbol (a living metaphor) of the Trinity’s relationship. Creation is a gift of the Father, through the Spirit, to the Son, which the Son perfects through the Spirit and gives back to the Father.
The Father is the speaker, the Son is the word and the Spirit is the breath.
Creation is a gift of the father to the son through the Spirit, which the Son prefects through the Spirit and gives back to the Father.
We were created to participate in this story.
Jesus leads us into the happy land of Trinity where the diversity and unity of creation find completion and fulfillment in the eternal community of love.
History began in the Trinity and is fulfilled in the Trinity
