Educating for the Lived Gospel #207

when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved’ (Luke 3:21-22)

All of our words about God fall short. How can anyone describe the infinite? Despite the ‘difficulties’, Christians continue in their trinitarian belief because it describes our reality. Jesus was sent by the Father to show us a way of living and loving along which the Holy Spirit guides us. Thus we truly enter the human condition depthing the goodness in us placed there by the Father so that we build community here. In so doing, we share the love and peace of Father, Son and Spirit.

We are made in the image of a triune God – this is why we are whole in relationship, in community. Want to be at peace? Love and be loved – it is as simple and fulfilling and complicated and painful as that. This is the path to wholeness placed in our spiritual DNA by our loving God.

Have a great week!
Patrick
