In this article an anthropology characterized by vulnerability, relationality and dependence is offered as a pathway towards building male and female relations that are characterized by harmony and joy. This anthropology is in contradiction to the modernistic anthropology of power, autonomy and independence. The proposed anthropology is based in the doctrine of the economic trinity. This anthropology and the consequent joyous gender relations are actualized in Christian communities that do not live with practical atheism but that take the triune God seriously.
