Marvelous Monday: Marvelous Worship

   Sunday we had a truly MARVELOUS worship time. We have been working through the book of Mark. Today's lesson was on the crucifixion of Christ. For weeks we have been working on a special presentation. I was asked to paint a picture during the service.

As we began to sing "Tell Me the Story of Jesus", I began painting Golgotha, the Place of the Skull, where Jesus was crucified. This was a very dark time for the followers.

Then I added the crosses. Scott did a beautiful and powerful reciting of Psalm 22, "My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me?"

After the darkness of the cross, I began to add the hill and tomb where he was to be buried. The scripture says the earth shook and I add lightning. 

Finally at the end of communion, while we sang "He Could Have Called Ten Thousand Angels", I painted the stone in front of the tomb.

After I finished my part for the day, "The Darkest Day",

our minister gave a powerful lesson about God stamping out Satan by sending Jesus.
Next week, on Easter Sunday, we will have

"the rest of the story" 

We took a video today, but I can't figure out how to download it to the computer. I will try to add that later. God was with me while I was painting.

  1. Good day, Melanie,

    Began reading about this last night but couldn't finish until today...Wow! painting in the church service - Glad to see God's people taking note of the talent among them. Good for you (or maybe I should say 'God for you'!)

    Thank you for visiting and for your delightful comment. Have a glorious day,
