National Day of Prayer draws faithful to courthouse

Bulloch County Sheriff Noel Brown, center, receives a laying on of hands during Thursday's National Day of Prayer observance on the old Bulloch County Courthouse grounds.
A large crowd, one that has grown from just a small collection of people 17 years ago, gathered on the Bulloch County Courthouse lawn Thursday for the annual National Day of Prayer. “The theme for this year’s service is ‘Pray for America — Unity,’” said Ed Neubert, pastor of Cornerstone Church in Statesboro and coordinator of the event. Neubert said the event has been celebrated nationally for the last 66 years.
