I have heard a number of “Trinity” analogies over the years. Some are clever and add a nuance of understanding, but ultimately, every analogy breaks down at some point. Describing the three-in-oneness of God isn’t an easy task, but it is definitely worth the time and energy to study and broaden our understanding of the way God is revealed in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.
It is somewhat easier to describe what the Trinity isn’t. and the folks over at Lutheran Satire have created a funny look at debunking the bad analogies of St. Patrick concerning the Trinity…enjoy and glean some insight into theologian humor.
