” All Day Singing & Dinner On The Grounds ”
There was a time long , long time ago when the local churches would have a complete day with their congregation. This painting called ” All Day Singing & Dinner On The Grounds ” is depicted in a small north Ga. Rural area called Pea Ridge. Once a year a big day came around again. This takes place at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church . An all day affair with lots of singing and eating. It was a very pleasing sort of day. I recall hearing such classic songs as AMAZING GRACE, ROCK OF AGES, OLD RUGGED CROSS , I’LL FLY AWAY and many more . Long gone in most rural areas of our country. Some things seemed better back then.
