In our "Fuel for Faith: An Important Class about Christian Theology" session last weekend, we looked at the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. We learned that God is three Persons in one God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Each of these Persons is distinct yet connected to/relating with the others, and each Person is fully God. Even though we can understand God's Triune nature truly, that does't mean we'll be able to exhaust its meaning fully. In other words, there's still an element of mystery to the Trinity. There are still ways this doctrine makes smoke come out of our ears. And for me, that's OK. After all, we're talking about God - there should be some categories of Deity that challenge my understanding as a finite creature.
With all this serious stuff in mind, I love that this short video can remain orthodox in its understanding of the Trinity AND have some light-hearted fun with acknowledging how it can blow apart some of our categories and ways we tend to think about it. (In other words, don't take this video more seriously than it wants to be taken.) So take the doctrine of the Trinity very seriously, and then enjoy this appx 4 min video on the Trinity:

Here is a good link discussing Orthodoxy from the Credo House Parchment and Pen. They list 6 different views of what it means to be orthodox. So where does Brookside fit...Reforming Orthodoxy?

Thanks for the book suggestion. Not sure how you have time to read all these books with the number of kids you have. But good for you if you can find the time.
