Thursday Arch Series

Arch 2011-02-13 4

Back under the Arch with Brad again on a Sunday afternoon. We first met him and talked about his mission in the post of December 6, 2010. True to his promise, he's there week after week, in every kind of weather. Sometimes he stands alone for a long time. People do come up to talk to him, though, asking what he is doing. He offers to pray with them. Sometimes they accept, sometimes not. Whatever you think about him, you have to respect his determination.

That puts things into perspective. Very cool.

Oui, ça s'appelle effectivement de la détermination. Dommage qu'il n'ait rien de mieux à faire. said...

The Arch inspires us and fascinates us in different ways.

I love this 'take' on the Arch and I'd love it even more w/o the guy in white. hahahaha That's me.

Well anybody that wants to offer up a prayer pour moi is most welcome. I thought he was a statue at first. Great perspective here B.

saw him there on Sunday, FEb. 20, 2011 when at the arch for a visit. (arrived at noon, waited thru security, and by the time we got inside, tickets sold out for tram)

I had remembered seeing him on the blog back in Dec. but told my kids I could not remember why he was there.

He looks like a little playmobil man.

Nice determination. The strength that people can draw from their convictions or religion never ceases to amaze me.
