“O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Today we celebrate the name of God: holy blessed Trinity. There is no other day quite like this one in the church’s year. There is no other god like ours. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
After worship we'll have a potluck cookout. We're providing polish sausages and hot dogs. It's going to be real nice!
