Event of Communion

This is the core meaning of the Christian doctrine of Trinity–the inner shape of God is mutual deference and honoring among three, not self-assertion or autonomy by one. God is “an event of communion” and perfect vulnerability, not an old man sitting on a throne. All creation is a replication of that foundational pattern.

–Richard Rohr
