The Trinity: Obscure Doctrine or the Key to Christian Faith & Life?

“We believe in the Holy Spirit… Who is worshipped and glorified with the Father and the Son”


 For many Christians, the doctrine of the Trinity seems too obscure. Because of this, many of us have largely dropped. Trinitarian ways of thinking and speaking about God and prefer to focus on the one member of the Trinity to whom we feel most drawn. But the ancient faith, as handed down to us in the Creed, insisted that the Christian God is fully known only in Trinity.


We will bring together an interdisciplinary panel from English, Biblical Studies, Philosophy, and Theology/Church History to discuss the possibilities of reclaiming Trinitarian thinking and speaking of God. Perhaps the doctrine of the Trinity is difficult. But perhaps it is also the key to Christian faith and life. How could this be?
