Via the Irishanglican’s weblog:
“Unless we begun with God-as-God-toward-us and think first of all in forms of God in relation to us and we in relation to God, we shall miss the biblical emphasis upon the Holy Trinity. Christians are baptized into “the Name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” and they know the Father through the Son and in and by the Holy Spirit, even as they look to the Father through the Son and in and by the Holy Spirit. They are led to adore the Holy Trinity and contemplate the relations between the Three Persons only because the Father has graciously called them through the Son and in and by the Spirit. The natural way for the ontological Trinity to enter Christian experience is through contemplation.” (Peter Toon, Our Triune God, etc. page 234)
