We use a calendar that has 12 months and 365 days in it. As it nears December 31st, we feel as though something is getting close to an end, and yet on January 1st it feels like a new beginning. Our life is composed of many endings and beginnings. We may live one life, but within this one life we have many different journeys.

3. QUESTION 3.
Was there not always in the Divine nature a Trinity to be understood as Divine Love, Divine Wisdom, and Quickening Spirit or Holy Proceeding?
The Divine Trinity in one Person ought to be understood as soul, body, and proceeding operation which together make one essence, since one arises from the other and consequently is part of the other. In every man there is likewise a trinity, which together constitute a single person, namely, soul, body, and proceeding operation. In man this trinity is finite, since man is but an organ of life, but in the Lord the Trinity is infinite and thus Divine, because the Lord is life itself as regards the Human too, as He teaches in John 5:26; 14:6, and elsewhere as well.
