Father had said this but the search function is broken.

We can relate to God in these ways, and most people have one prominent way, just be aware of that and don't completely neglect the others.

Can you explain this further please? (Not on the predominantly" part but the "the are three" part)

Your question is a little garbled. What are you asking?

An explanation of the following principle (which I might be expressing in a garbled way):

There are three ways of relating* (that's not your word) to God:

By reading, to God as truth
By sacred art and music, to God as beauty
By service and charity, to God as goodness.

I wouldn't say that there are three and only three ways, but these are the principal ones (though arguably Unity/Oneness belongs in the list too).

With respect to truth, that covers all forms of truth-seeking; one could also learn by podcasts, for example.

I think service and charity are a response to God's goodness.

How do we relate to God as unity?

What are the other, non-principal ways?

We desire to be part of something, to be one with others--that's why peer pressure works.

I don't have a list of others; I just didn't want to be restrictive without good reason because someone would inevitably ask, "What about [whatever]?"
