Divine Party

“This world is fundamentally unnecessary. Nothing has to be. It needs a creator not only for its beginning but for every moment of its being. Accordingly, the trinitarian bash doesn’t really come before creation what actually happens is that all of creation, from start to finish, occurs within the bash: the raucousness of the divine party is simultaneous with the being of everything that ever was or will be. If you like paradoxes, it means that God is the eternal contemporary of all the events and beings in time.” (Robert Farrar Capon, The Romance of the Word, 177)
