Rural Thursday Blog Hop #36


See You At The Pole at the boys elementary school yesterday morning.


See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.

See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.

I am so thankful that my kids are growing up in a community where this is allowed to happen without any negative backlash!

  11. It is quite sad that there are more places this wouldn't happen than places where it will.
    Your community gets it.

  13. Tanya - I have never heard of See you at the Pole. Thank you for sharing. I have not stopped by in a while and thought it was high time. I am glad I did.

    I wanted to mention that I have joined two online photography MeetUp groups in our area. They are really a nice bunch of people and get together often. Here is the links- just thought you might like to check them out -if you haven't already.
