Strand: God, Religion and Society (GRSL7-8E1)
Levels 7 and 8
Biblical revelation speaks of God, and for Christians, this reality is expressed as a Trinity of divine persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
From the perspective of the Christian faith, explore the mystery of the Trinity as a relationship of mutual love amongst the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; a relationship into which all are invited.
The concept of Trinity, as loving relationship is the way Christians come to an understanding of the complex mystery of God. The Trinity also shows us that Christians, who are made in God’s image and likeness, are also made for loving relationship with God, one another and the whole of creation.
Coming from God, creation itself is good and wonderful. Jesus Christ is the Word through whom God creates all that exists, and the ‘firstborn of all creation’ (Col 1:15). God not only creates the world. God does not remain in transcendent isolation, but continues to relate with and give life to all created realities. God not only creates the world, God sends the Son and breathes the Spirit into the world. God does not remain in transcendent isolation, but continues to relate with and give life to all created realities.
