Letter to the editor: Thanks to prayer organizers

Friday, May 10, 2013 - 12:01 am

Many thanks to Mayor Tom Henry, Rev. Terry Anderson, Amir J. Tamir Rasheed and Rev. Michael Spath for organizing “Prayers for the City: A Celebration of One Community, Many Faiths,” on May 5 at the Performing Arts Center at the University of Saint Francis. Hundreds of people of all faiths and backgrounds participated in an inspiring service of prayer, music, singing, readings of peace and fellowship. I was honored to read a passage from Indian Leader Mohandas Ghandi. Thanks also to the other religions leaders and performers who participated in this outstanding service that united our community in prayer.

Geoff Paddock, 5th District city councilman
