Colours as a useful illustration of distinctiveness
To understand what is going on inside of me is going to require more than words. Just now a powerful picture presented itself to me around the theme of colours.
Colours are stunning because of the way they contrast, blend, compliment, contrast, inspire wonder. If the Trinity was collapsed into a singular colour, let us imagine for a moment that all that was red, blue and yellow were no longer red blue and yellow but brown. If it were a bucket of paint, then every drop would contain redness, blueness and yellowness in order for it to be sludge-coloured. Yet not one drop would be that colour. I am tempted to do something creative - maybe a video - around this.
Church, please remember your distinctive God!
