For many people, the highlight of the Winter Olympics is pair’s figure skating with its split-second timing and precision choreography. For some element, both skaters perform the same move with perfect symmetry. Other elements of the routine – for example, lifts and certain jumps – require different movements for the man and woman.
In some ways, pair’s skating serves as an illustration of the Trinity. Some aspects of the Trinity are shared by all three members; for example, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all equally God. Similarly, each member of the Trinity glorifies one another. At the same time, the members of the Trinity are unique with distinct roles. The Father sends the Son; the Son does the Father’s will; and the Spirit enables Gods’ presence. Like an eternal dance, the members of the Trinity move in perfect love, harmony, and glory.
