77 EpisodesProduced by Mark Cain, UCA memberWebsite

The Trinity doctrine is perplexing. Many Christians prefer explicit Scriptures on the one God over catholic creeds. Mark Cain explores living as a lower-case-u unitarian amid a trinitarian majority with insights and stories from unorthodox guests.


1. The Perilous Trinity Deep Dive

The challenges and dangers of Trinity study may help one appreciate why the UCA exists (wish it didn’t, though). Mark Cain considers four layers of difficulty when digging deep into the Trinity. 

  1. The warning label
  2. The difficulty
  3. The extra-biblical content
  4. The need for church history

If you take this journey, you may win the prize! Yay.

If your podcast app lets you remove silences, maybe don't. You might enjoy this better with the silences left in. I am... very deliberate about... my pauses.
