Have a conversation about it with people you love. Or you might journal your thoughts.

  • How does Desmond Tutu describe the Holy Trinity?  
  • How is that similar or different from your thoughts or experience of God?
  • What does love have to do with the nature of God?
  • What do you think about the idea that creation itself is an overflowing of God’s love?
  • What does it mean to you that God wants you, God desired you into being?
