John Hebenton

John talks about how theology was for the first 1,000 or more years done by people immersed in the life and struggles of the people of the church. Theology was a pastoral response to the big issues they were facing. In the face of persecution for example, who is the God met in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
The doctrine of the Trinity should also be read from a pastoral perspective. How do we respond to the community of love that is the Trinity? How do we experience this God in our everyday lives? How do we experience this God as we face the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic? How do we respond?
So what is the gift of Trinity Sunday this year, and how do we live that out?
