    In the context of the role of Building Solidarity in Christian Mission the chapter argues how this has to be based on the Abba-Experience of Jesus that is spelt out in the gospels. The Trinitarian mystery is meaningful primarily as a relationship and this must be the basis of human solidarity. This has parallel insights in Indian Philosophy as well with the understanding of the Divine as the Atman of all human beings
