Have you met PastorÂ Debbie Blue over at House of Mercy? You'll probably want to go and find everything she's written. Really. Here is a teaser from Debbie (from a few years ago, regarding the trinity). In the beginning, says the author of the Gospel of John (hearkening back to Wisdom), there was not just an abstract god, an elusive essence overwhelmingly distant. In the beginning God contained within Godself a personal union: relationship. And this word comes to pitch its tent with humanity in all its culture-bound messy ruckus, apparently not put off by humanityâ€™s unkempt campsite or the marshmallow streaked campersâ€™ faces.
Happy Holy Trinity Sunday.
