This is the little suburban lake we use for our dawn service. This is my photo and permission is given for it to be used for worship and related activities.

This is the brake drum fire we use to cook the bread on at our dawn service.  It leaves no mess in a suburban park. This is my photo and permission is given for it to be used for worship and related activities.

Once again we will be cooking fish and middle eastern flat bread over an open fire beside a small lake at some unearthly hour of the morning. But it is something that is too beautiful not to experience. And you don't need a lake or a beach - any bit of water will do :)
