Three In One

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The theology of the Trinity still boggles the human brain. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. There are three, but they are one and the same. Who among us has full comprehension of that ?

Theologian William Placher speaks of the Trinity as depicting God as a “community of equals.” The Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each has its own mission, yet each is, in Placher’s words, “united in love.” If the Trinity is the substance of God, then one might conclude that equality, mutuality, is built right into the nature of the world. We are created for communion, mutuality, not for division and competition. The world was created as a place of cooperation, interaction, and community. The nature of the Trinity, as the nature of God, has relevance for our description of the world.

We are created in “Gods Image,“ we learn this truth in Genesis 1:26-28 . When we are drawn away from the temptation of individualism, we have opportunity to come into a fuller understanding of  the reality of the communal nature of God whose image we are created in.

Let us each step out and meet someone new this week. We will not only gain a brother or sister in Jesus name, we may also gain a glimpse of the Trinitarian communal nature of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit who is our God.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
