My recent reading of Ernest Simmons’ book—The Entangled Trinity—inspired me to go back and look at these first Thketches I did in December, 2011. They demonstrate how panentheism seemed to be the more likely model.
These were my first attempts at Thketches, ((that’s my weird name for my Theological Sketches—Thketches—where I try to explain complex ideas using simple drawings.)) and they are pretty rough—BE WARNED!. I didn’t write a script or do any post-production editing, I just started recording, drawing, and sketching, hoping it would make sense. Someday I’ll go back and tighten these up, or update them.
I post them now because I think they give an important background to why I am studying the Trinity and created the Deep in the Burbs project. They explain how I have moved from a modern theistic worldview to robust Trinitarian world view.
This video takes the Quick Intro to the Social Trinity one step further. It is a slower, narrated guide to the Trinity Prezi. Part One covers Catherine LaCugna’s commentary on the Trinitarian conversation in the West up to the Modern Era. Part Two talks through the 20th century conversation.

This is the fourth and final video in the series created for the Deep in the Burbs Research team. The ideas in this video draw heavily on two sources:
1. The concept of the Fusion of Horizons presented by Hans Georg Gadamer.
2. The Secular Age by Charles Taylor.
I am continually trying new techniques in animation. This little experiment is significant to me because the images were all created in Corel Painter and Photoshop. I imported them in to Toon Boom Animate as layers. This allows me to animate fully illustrated images. Very cool. I look forward to exploring this technique further.
