Abstract

This article commends the motif of patience for thinking about the Trinity. It opens with an analysis of Church Dogmatics I/1, worrying about a spare account of intratrinitarian relations but finding promise in Barth's treatment of the Spirit. It then proposes that Barth's remarks about patience could nourish constructive reflection. The divine life itself involves the exercise of patience: each Person bears the distinctions and relations basic to God's being. To nuance this claim, work by Brian Leftow, Hans Urs von Balthasar, and Linn Tonstad is analyzed. A conclusion considers social trinitarianism and the “modestly speculative” character of trinitarian reflection.
