Abraham-Christ axis works well. Also working for me is the ambassador metaphor. While most people will automatically associate ‘Christ’ with Jesus and not allow a wider encompassing of the Trinity, and most people will put Trinity /Christ — even Abraham into the ‘religion’ slot, there is some movement in the ambassador metaphor — citizen of another country, occupying land in the country that hosts the embassy (the land being my own body / the church as body), Christ as related to anointing Spirit, one sent with authority to represent, etc, each of these giving some scope for conversation that includes Spirit (God is Spirit etc) without running out of gas by reducing description to an adjective. 

Then too ‘religion’ is also a good word, being that to which I am bound.
