Every Tuesday at 11 a.m., the University of Pikeville holds a chapel service open to all students and faculty. The service is only a half hour long and is for busy members of the UPIKE family who have a tight schedule. The service is organized and structured so that people don’t have to worry about missing class and lunch.
The chapel service on Tuesday, Sept. 20, however, was different. Chapel was outside by the peace pole next to Derriana Hall. Campus Chaplain Rob Musick, instructor of religion, led the service.
“The peace pole is a symbol of peace and has a prayer for peace in four different languages. The languages were centered around the major religions, we have English, Arabic, Hindi and Hebrew,” Musick said.
The peace pole is for people to get a sense of the world and to raise conversation about the scriptures on the pole. The pole represents peace and how it unifies the campus as one.
