I, for one, would welcome some prayer, any prayer, even the Lord’s Prayer — a Christian observance — in preference to NO prayer.
All I can say to my friend is this: Closed minds can do much harm to us all.
Let’s open them — so that God can enter.
Several years ago, I came across an odd story from the East Coast of Canada.
A minister in a parish in Nova Scotia belonging to the United Church Christian denomination had complained that some lackey in the government had asked her to refrain from reading from the New Testament during her blessing at a memorial marking the anniversary of a Swissair airplane tragedy.
She further claimed that she was not allowed to mention Christ during the multi-faith service.
