II. Featured Articles on Trinity

4. God in Trinity - A Communion of Persons

God is not an isolated being, but communion and love. He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit; He is not one Person but three. Between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit there exists a pre-eternal communion of love. ...

5. Calling God Father

Lord's prayer begins with 'Our Father.' We must consider two things here: In what sense God is our Father, and  What we owe Him because He is our Father. ...

6. The Friend Closest to Your Heart - How well do you know the Holy Spirit?

In John's gospel, Jesus says that in some ways the Holy Spirit will be even closer to the apostles than he was - as a teacher, counselor, and witness within their hearts. On the basis of those characterizations, I would like to suggest a personal image of the Holy Spirit that embodies all that he is and does for us: the Holy Spirit is "the friend closest to our hearts." ...

7. The Fruits of the Holy Spirit

Pentecost was marked by an abundant release of the gift of the Holy Spirit. The first major consequence of this outpouring is that it initiates a radically new relationship between the individual and God. God's love for us is so real and personal that He desires to come and dwell within us. ...

8. A Trinitarian Pentecost

"A Trinitarian Pentecost": What do I mean by that? I mean that in the event of Pentecost itself and in Peter's preaching on that day, there is a very strong emphasis on the Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And not as just some abstract doctrinal concept, a theory. No, this is reality going on here, a most blessed heavenly reality that is, at the same time, entirely down to earth. This is God in action, acting to save sinners, the likes of you and me. ...

9. Malankara World Trinity and Pentecost Supplements

11. Family Special: When Trouble Divides Us

There are days - sometimes many of them - when it is hard to remember what it was about your spouse that you once found so lovable. Most of us expect a few waves on the voyage to marital bliss.

12. Family Picture - Make Time for Your Family

Although my pursuits were bringing me professional rewards, my dad wasn't impressed. He wrote me a long and loving letter, gently expressing how great a mistake it would be if I continued to pour every resource into my career and failed to meet my obligations to my wife and infant daughter. He said that my occupational success would be pale and unsatisfying if I lost the love of those I cared about most..
