Health, Pt. 3

"Our Trinitarian theology in the evangelical church is thin. Until it gets thicker, we're not going to make much progress in this whole area of spiritual formation. God is in eternal community, a radically other-centered relationship where the Father is always saying, 'Isn't my Son something?!' The Son's always saying, 'Look at the Father.' And the Spirit is always saying, 'Look at Jesus.'

Until we start pondering the mystery of the Trinity, we won't have a clue that we're a million miles from it in terms of community. People need to be overwhelmed by the Trinitarian community."

(Larry Crabb quoting Eugene Peterson)
