IN the other thread Ben used a single candle with 3 wicks as an example. One candle, three flames. What do people think about that?
While not at the level for young kids, if Van Til is right that the unity and diversity in the trinty helps us solve the one and many problem and serves as the basis for finding unity in particulars (eg. there is a single "oneness" but many instantiations of one), then it seems that those types of things could serve as analogies. This is responding to Gabriel's concerns.
