Are you there God?

The Trinity.  It’s how we describe the whole God, Jesus, Holy Spirit thing. 

It sounds so clear when you say it like that.  But once you get past “One God, Three Persons,” it can be hard to talk about the Trinity in a way that helps.  Let alone makes sense. 

So there are 3 people?

    Yes. 

They’re all God? 

    Right. 

And there’s only one God, right? 

    Right again. 

But they’re still 3 people? 

    Exactly. 

Which can start to sound like nonsense, if we’re not careful. 

 

But if it isn’t just something bizarre or silly, then what is the Trinity? 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Trinity
