Take Your Place at the Table

Trinity: Part One Take Your Place at the Table Monday, May 6, 2019 In Genesis, we see the divine dance in an early enigmatic story (18:1-8). “The Lord” appears to Abraham as “three men” or “three angels,” and Abraham and Sarah seem to see the Holy One in the presence of these three; they bow… Continue Reading Take Your Place at the Table
