Theology On The Street

Consider the essence of the Christian Trinity — a triune relationship: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Genesis teaches that God created humanity in His image. Could it be that his Trinitarian essence is in more places than we think?

2. Father, Mother, Child
3. Husband, Wife, Marriage
4. Rain, Ice, and Humidity
