— The pub­lic is in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in a walk­ing prayer vigil that will be­gin at 6 p.m. Wed­nes­day night on East Main Street.

“We’re go­ing to pray over the whole town,” said Mike Brown, a Ris­ing Sun-area man who is or­ga­niz­ing the

mo­bile vigil.

Brown said the idea was not his own.

“God told me to do it,” he said.

It’s the right re­sponse to all the ug­li­ness around us, he added.

“It’s so crazy out there any more,” Brown said Tues­day.

He’s not alone in that ob­ser­va­tion, and he won’t be alone as he be­gins the vigil at 6 p.m. in front of Big Lots in the Ris­ing Sun Towne Cen­ter.

“There will be a group of like-minded in­di­vid­u­als that be­lieve in the power of prayer,” Brown said.

The vigil will make three to four stops, in­clud­ing at Ris­ing Sun Town Hall and at the Ris­ing Sun Po­lice De- part­ment, he said.

“We want to pray with and for the of­fi­cers,” he said, adding that it’s a show of sup­port for law en­force­ment.

In the weeks ahead, Brown hopes to re­peat the vigil in ev­ery town in Ce­cil County.

“And if nec­es­sary we’ll re­peat the process,” he said.
