Blog # 251 Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Though we would not have imagined or discovered the mystery of the Holy Trinity
using our limited human resources, we do know something of the power wisdom
and goodness of God as it is reflected in all of creation. The power of a lightning
bolt or the wind, the wisdom of the One Who taught the bee to make wax and honey,
a chicken to hatch from an egg, and the goodness of a mother's love all reflect
something of the wisdom power and the goodness of the Creator of all that exists.
In addition, however, once we have received through faith the revelation of God
as the Holy Trinity, Father, Word, and Spirit, we are fascinated at the recurrence of
trilogies, sets of threes, so regularly in our world. Much of our reality comes to
us in threes. There are so many I could not feel comfortable viewing them as
coincidences, especially since anyone who knows even our limited amount about
God's Presence, realizes there are no coincidences where God IS, which is
everywhere and always.
