More Thoughts on Pantheism and the Trinity

Any number of distinct things can be one. When people object to the concept of a triune God because “how can three Persons be one,” they are tripping over the least mysterious aspect of the Trinity, and the most mundane application of non-duality that makes it explicable in pantheist terms.

Why Stop At Three? (a Pantheist meditation on the Trinity)
