De Trinitate

Augustine believed that contemplation of the nature of The Trinity would be edifying; spurring on Love of God and neighbor. So, when my girls began to fight in the back seat on the way home from school, I gave them a short synopsis of how Augustine imagined the Trinity as analogous to a Self’s constitutive, willful awareness of itself.

When this didn’t work, I gave each of them a piece of gum to chew.

For the record, the score is now: Trinitarian God – 0, Bazooka Joe – 1.
