My prompt from Creative Tuesdays this time is “picnic”. We had such a wonderful time at our Sizzlin’ Summer Service 8 in our park in Haliburton on Sunday that I had to paint it. We didn’t actually have a big picnic basket but we did have a small cooler for our two grandchildren. And grandma and grandpa didn’t sit in this position. Grandpa and daddy sat up on the hill in their blue chairs. My daughter and our two little ones sat on a blanket with the snacks. But they did munch their way through the music, the prayers, and the message.

There were over 300 people attending a joint church service put on by our ministerial. Great message about unity and how to be disciples of love to everyone.

The service is always a reminder of what all Christians should be thinking about and acting – unity and love. Read from The Message below:

Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way (Colossians 3:16-17, The Message, my bolding emphasis).

We sang tremendous songs – They know We are Christians by Our Love, The Twenty-Third Psalm, It is Well with My soul, Shine Jesus Shine.

And a wonderful song by Rend Collective:

My Lighthouse

And of course Robin Mark – Fly CCLI Song #6098290:

Fly – new song by Robin Mark

And a new one for us by Graham Kendrick CCLI Song #738261:

I hope you enjoy a listen to these wonderful worship songs. I am still singing them from Sunday!! Oh Oh ..Do you like these?
