Tomorrow night I’ll be kicking off a series called Doctrine: What Do You Really Believe? for Impact Student Ministry at Cuyahoga Valley Church up in Broadview Heights, OH. I’m especially excited about being assigned this topic because, frankly, I’ve never given a whole lot of focused thought to the doctrine of the trinity – and now I have to teach it to high school students in 20-30 minutes. No big deal, right?
Conceptually, I know the importance of the doctrine of the trinity, and I’ve never been a Modalist, or a Sabellian, or a tri-theist, or anything like that. But those are just it fancy-sounding words that anyone can stumble on in a dictionary or in an iTunes U theology course on your iPhone or iPad.
Why does the trinity matter?
Other than helping to sort out all the God/Jesus/Holy Spirit business, what difference does it make?
That’s what I hope to touch on tomorrow night at 5pm. If you’re in the area, I would love for you to join me.
