Today actually doesn’t have a national holiday to celebrate; there are only religious and racing holidays: Trinity Sunday and the Indianapolis 500. I’m quite a bit away from the races so I think I’ll celebrate the former rather than the latter. In case you’re not informed on Christianity, Trinity Sunday is the first Sunday after Pentecost that celebrates the Christian Doctrine of the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Our church service this morning at Grace Point Church of the Nazarene was about the Freedom to Pray, not the Trinity, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate on our own when your church service lets your holiday down! (It was a rather good sermon, nevertheless). So I’ve brushed up on a little music history, thanks Wikipedia! Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a church cantata, in English ‘There is something defiant and fainthearted,’ for Trinity Sunday and it was first performed on May 27, 1725. Interesting, huh? Listen to some Bach and say a prayer in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
