Come along and share our trip of this evening, way into the country to visit the tiny Trinity Lutheran Church. The graveyard actually existed before the church, as far back as 1740. In 1794, a log church was built beside it. Then in 1838, the log church was replaced by a brick building. In 1880, it was rebuilt again, and is the church you see here. There is still no plumbing or electricity in the church. See the lanterns hanging on the ceiling that serve as light when needed? Of course this is not a "working church". But for a few weeks during the summer, they have Wednesday night services. You can sit by the window to catch the breeze, or use one of the hand fans provided. Look out over the fields and listen to the cows moo along with the hymns. The only electricity is to the wonderful pipe organ, so when they have picnics, they have to plug the coffee pot into the organ. This gives the term "organic coffee" new meaning! Besides the obvious trinity, so many things in the bible happened in threes. Jonah was in the whale three days, Peter disavowed knowing Jesus three times, Jesus was in the tomb three days before he rose. There are many more, it can be fun to find them. I think Trinity is a good name.
"For there are three that testify; the spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement." 1 John 5:7
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Cor. 13;13
