>Go Between God

>We are used to referring to the Holy Spirit as the third person. By this we usually mean the third person of the Trinity. But John V Taylor, many years ago, drew attention to the Holy Spirit as the Go-Between God – who is the third person in a very different way. He writes; “the Holy Spirit is the invisible third party who stands between me and the other, making us mutually aware”.
He quotes Martin Buber who wrote: “We are waiting for a theophany about which we know nothing except its place, and that place is called community.”
