In this 3rd part of this look at The Trinity, wind is the basis of the analogy. Wind is really important to growing trees. All that pushing and pulling actually helps the tree grow stronger roots. Take away the wind, and the tree can grow only so tall before it falls over.
In this second part of a 3 part series – all about the Trinity – we use the example of a Fire Chief, Firefighter and Fire Alarm. We need the Fire Alarm to alert us to danger, the Firefighter to come rescue us, and the Fire Chief is needed because we need someone with more experience, who can sustain a much wider viewpoint.
It’s hard to explain the Trinity. For a start it isn’t something you’ll find in your bibles. But the members of The Trinity are very obviously there: it is, at its heart, our human way of seeking to explain the relationship between God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
