Immersed in the Whirlwind

Ancient Christian imagery likened the Trinity to a whirlwind, a community of complete self-giving in which God the Father loves the Son, who loves the Spirit, who loves the Father, who loves the Son, who .... Round and round spins the unceasing outpouring of divine generosity in a whirlwind that seeks to sweep all hearts, all things, into this community of receiving and giving.

Joy happens when we experience ourselves drawn into the whirlwind, where we know ourselves as more blessed — and more capable of blessing — than we had imagined possible.

— David L. Miller in The Lutheran
