Trinity, Cross, form and content

Roderick T. Leupp:

Moltmann further states that "the content of the doctrine of the Trinity is the real cross of Christ himself.  The form of the crucified Christ is the Trinity."  No life is possible without form and content. Form gives life structure, and content gives lkfe depth.  The form and content of the Christian life is inescapably triune, and living the cruciform life, in full cognizance of the triune cross, is the life God desires for every human being.
-"Knowing the Name of God: The Trinitarian Tapestry of Faith, Community and Worship," p. 116
