PLAYING FOR PRAYING — Ridgemont Elementary School seventh-grader Tucker Pounds, son of Allen and Shawna Pounds of Union City, played a stirring rendition of “Amazing Grace” on the trumpet, as English as a Second Language teacher Mixon Moore listened prayerfully, during a student-led See You at the Pole program before classes this morning around a flag pole behind the school. The pole was recently donated by Woodmen of the World. At Ridgemont, a large crowd of students gathered for a brief program that included scripture and prayer. Similar programs were held this morning at several schools across Obion County. See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with 10 students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September for the entirely student-led event. This year’s theme was “Converge,” based on Matthew 18:20, “Whenever two or three of you come together in My name, I am there with you.”
