Pastor Pat Bailey, Insights: The Trinity

Last Sunday was Trinity Sunday in the church year. The Trinity is one of the ways that we picture God in the Christian tradition. When we try to literalize it, it makes no sense to modern consciousness.  When we tap into the rich spiritual history of contemplating the Trinity, however, it speaks to our bigger and deeper Self.  Does how we picture God matter?  How does “Trinity” invite us into the life of God?
