Why does the Trinity Matter?

Why does it matter that God – glorious, mysterious and merciful – is three persons in one God rather than a singular deity? Well, I would say that in some ways it doesn’t matter, and yet that it is incredibly important. It doesn’t matter because whatever we can say about God is so approximate and limited and God will be God whatever we say or do. And it is important because what we think about the nature of God impacts on how we relate to God, to ourselves and to all other beings and our world.
