Last night Pastor Mark asked me to draw a sketch for Thanksgiving Eve during the service. We covered a 4’x8′ chalkboard with white paper and I drew with colored lecturer’s chalk. It illustrates the story in Luke 17:11-17 of the one man who returned to thank Jesus for healing him.

The drawing started during the opening hymn and then ended at the conclusion of the sermon. We asked everyone to write out things for which they are thankful on a half sheet card and then bring them up to the board and tape them to the drawing. It was a fun experience.

Thanks to Becky Martin-Facer for taking these photos of the actual event.

This image and video are a rough sketch I did in procreate on my iPad in preparation for the event.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
