Trinity Sunday – How do we describe the indescribable mystery that we call God, when we try to talk about and relate to God as Trinity? There have been many popular analogies for the Trinity, for example St Patrick's alleged use of the three parts of a shamrock leaf, but such analogies can be misleading and even dangerous if we think that on their own they will bring us closer to understanding God. Describing God needs more than just logic and human reasoning; also required are stories of love, compassion, grace and justice, expressed through such means as images, metaphors, poetry, art and music. When the disciples met with Jesus up north in Galilee after his resurrection, he told them to go out into the world to teach people what he had taught them, immersing them by baptism into the new way of living, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28: 16-20
