Sunday, May 14


 

May 7 is Rural Life Sunday

"The American Protestant custom of observing Rural Life Sunday after Easter has its roots in the ancient custom of 'Rogation Days'— from the Latin word rogare 'to ask' (In modern day English we find the root in the word 'interrogation'). Christians in farming communities would 'ask a blessing' on their fields, their seeds, their farm animals and their own labor, that their planting would flourish, and result in a good harvest. It was a joyful, hopeful time of community prayer for the land."
