Recovering the Doctrine of the Trinity for Christian Living

Spiritual Formation Institute Seminar: "Recovering The Doctrine of the Trinity For Christian Living Today"

Date: Saturday 8 April 2006 (public holiday in Johor)

Venue: Holy Light Church

The doctrine of the Trinity is often acknowledged but not understood. Its relevance to the Christian life seems minimal because its importance and impact are seldom articulated and taught.

This seminar is an introduction to the doctrine of the Trinity to show its importance and relevance for the spiritual formation of Christians. The seminar will be divided into three main sections.
(1) The first will be a study of Scripture to set out the biblical evidences for a doctrine that God has been involved with humankind as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

(2) The second session will be a historical and theological survey of how the early Church Fathers worked through these scriptural evidences to formulate a cogent view of a God who is One in essence and yet exists as three distinct Persons.

(3) In the last section, we will work out the implications of the doctrine of Trinity for our spiritual formation. How will our understanding of the life of God living in us, i.e. the life of the Trinity impact personal and corporate spirituality?
