Welcome to Triune Life!

The life of the Trinity is also our life. It is a recognition of our unity and a celebration of our diversity. Acknowledging the diversity of the Trinity as essential is vital because it also acknowledges the diversity of creation as essential. “Black lives matter,! is therefore a statement of sincere belief that all of creation in all of its diversity reflects the very life of the Trinity itself. … More Welcome to Triune Life!

She Persisted!

Hannah is a progenitor of a faith and vision that boldly proclaims God as the midwife at our side and, come what may, God is not going anywhere! God is the midwife coaxing and soothing, challenging us to push through the pain in order to receive new life.

God is the midwife that challenges to be in the world in ways that will allow new life to be born. … More She Persisted!

Eating is necessary for life, and so if we’ve got a new life in Christ, it will require food. … More The Bread We Eat

Bread of Life

When Jesus spoke of himself as the bread of life is it possible that he was speaking of abundance and life, of richness, texture, and boldness? When Jesus offers himself to us as the bread of life could he be inviting us a great feast in our life of faith? I think that if this vision of bread in the fourth gospel teaches us something about Jesus, the first lesson to keep in mind is that Jesus, the bread of life, is many-textured, multifaceted, and complex in flavor! … More Bread of Life
