Author Robert Cornwall offers a good insight into the puzzling concept of The Trinity on his blog, Ponderings on a Faith Journey. Today’s “pondering” is “Reinvisioning Trinitarian Language” and gives the reader some words to chew in mind and spirit.
The problem is that when we look at God as Trinity through the eyes of reason alone, we tend to end up with a math problem, and that gets us into trouble. But what if the Trinity isn’t about math? What if the Trinity is meant to describe the divine nature and the way God interacts with creation in a way that is much deeper than math can describe? What if the Trinity is meant to remind us that God is ultimately a mystery. – Robert D Cornwall
