Creative Suffering of the Triune God

Chapter 6 contributes to the renaissance of a practical theology of Trinity by delineating some positive implications of its evolutionary theology of the suffering God for feminist, ecological, and pastoral concerns. It proposes a female panentheistic‐procreative paradigm of the creative suffering of the Triune God through female images of God drawn from biblical and rabbinical traditions. In keeping with such a paradigm, it advances a model of midwifery as an approach toward ecological ethics. Finally, in view of the ubiquity and diversity of suffering in the cosmos and its creatures, it sets forth a pastoral model of threefold differentiation of suffering in God as sympathy, empathy, and protopathy.

Keywords:   panentheism, transcendence, immanence, incarnation, Sophia, Shekhinah, midwifery, sympathy, protopathy, pastoral efficacy
