trinitarian leadership

"The more a church is characterized by a symmetrical and decentralized distribution of power, and by a freely affirmed interaction, the more it will correspond to the Trinitarian communion."
-Miroslav Volf, from his "After Our Likeness:The Church as the Image of the Trinity," p. 236 (free read here);
quoted in Chester, "Delighting in the Trinity," p. 169

  1. interesting quote... I think I understand the "decentralized distribution" part, but what does Volf mean or Chester make of the "symmetrical" aspect?


Hey, thanks for engaging the conversation!
