It’s difficult to get excited about the triangular symbol that we assign to the mystery of the Holy Trinity whose solemnity we celebrate this weekend. It makes this Godhead seem so static. And yet the reality of the Trinity is that it has to do with a living, active relationship between three persons within one Godhead. The Father is the giver. The Son is the given. The Holy Spirit is the gift/giving. The love that exists between the Father and the Son is the Spirit. Mercy, fidelity, love, grace, and fellowship are attributes of God. A metaphor that implies dynamism when speaking of the trinity is the dance. We are invited to step into the dance of the Three-in-One. Sometimes it is a slow dance. Sometimes it is fast. The important thing here is that we allow God to set the pace, to take the lead-not easy! In this unsettling time may we live a Trinitarian life knowing that we are not alone. Let’s keep dancing!
