A Quantum Leap of Faith
In a surprising twist, science, especially quantum physics, is expanding faith in the Trinity as it shows us that relationships are all there is in the universe. I confess to having a hard time understanding the quantum theory in physics. But the quantum principle of a complementarity that tolerates ambiguity, approximation, probability, and paradox greatly appeals to me. Inflexible certitudes turn me off and worries me.
The Divine Flow of Life
Any religion that has been reduced to mere performance of certain rituals, affirming certain “truths,” adhering to certain moral principles, and being part of a special group is useless. Religion is about participation not merely following. Authentic religion helps the believer to fully enter into to the divine flow of life, which for Christians means actively participating in the mystery of the Trinity. Christianity is more than going to church on Sunday and trying to be good the rest of the week. Christ calls us to something much deeper.
A Loving Embrace
If you have the Trinity figured out, you have accomplished the impossible. The Triune God is a dynamic…a dynamic love relationship, changing, growing deepening. The Trinity doesn’t simply live in unchanging truths; the Trinity lives in a loving embrace of creation.
Three Thoughts on the Trinity
Heaven is not a place; it is a state of being…state of being fully in tune with the Trinity.
The delight of the Trinity is to pour itself out into Oneness.
Prayer is the Trinity praying in us.
