Pietisten Picnic

(and Annual Meeting)

This year’s picnic, on a lovely August afternoon, gathered about 30 folks to the idyllic yard of the Johnson-Blomgren family on Vashon Island. Following a very brief business meeting, led by Karl Nelson and Mark Safstrom, we did some lively singing of treasured hymns from the new Glen Wiberg book, accompanied by a group of string band musicians. Jim Sundholm preached — always inspiring — and we feasted on a wonderful array of picnic dishes and desserts brought by all. It was a memorable day for all ages.
