The Doctrine of the Trinity:

Many people find it difficult both to comprehend and put words to the doctrine of the Trinity. Lest we believe understanding the doctrine of the Trinity is a problem for current generations of Christians only, history tells us that we are not alone in our struggles. The church fought over the doctrine of the Trinity for a century or more and even great theologians like St. Augustine at times got tangled up trying to explain it and admitted that it was beyond him!

          And yet the Doctrine of the Trinity is important because it gives words to our faith. When we speak of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, we use our words to describe how God is present and in relationship with us, the people of God. Although couched in the abstract language of fourth-century metaphysics of being, knowing, substance, identity, the doctrine of the Trinity describes our experience of the living God – the communal, relational, and accessible nature of the God we know in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit.
