Description

One of the critical questions for the church in our day is the dynamic between the Son and the Spirit within the Trinity, and what this means for the life and witness of the church. Some Christians seem to be 'Jesus' Christians with little awareness of or reference to the Spirit. Others seem to be 'Spirit' Christians with Jesus as a secondary player. Both are a problem. We need to ask for and embrace a Trinitarian faith that is Christ-centred and fully and deeply graced by the Spirit.
