Who Could Possibly Object?

It was refreshing - very much so - to see public officials - county commissioners - beginning the Feb. board meeting of the Health Dept. of Northwest Michigan with a prayer.

(You can watch it here.)

Not only is it wise to humble oneself in the sight of the Lord, as James 4:10 advises, an opening prayer at a government meeting does not violate the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution (See the Town of Greece v. Galloway.)

ERG hopes the practice continues, as it's a way better way to begin a public meeting than is a "land acknowledgement."
