UNDERSTANDING THE TRINITY?

Today is Trinity Sunday, but “so what”? It’s surely a fundamental teaching of our faith, but no one understands it anyway. After all, how can anyone explain 3 persons in 1 God? Let’s, however, look at this in a different way. How would you define God in 1 word? As Christians, we would say, “God is love.” So, love is a relationship, not a thing. Aha! God then is the relationship of love wherever it is found. So, the Trinity lives in all of us insofar as we love. Trinity is not some distant impossible-to-understand doctrine. Trinity remains the source, expression, and inspiration of deep genuine love. We who love shine with God’s brilliance, the love of the Trinity. I love you, and you love me.
