A Contradiction in Terms?
In most meetings, the Lord's Prayer is the official close of the meeting. I think that the recitation of a prayer from a specific religion is a violation of tradition, and diverts us from our singleness of purpose. I also believe it is disrespectful to persons of other faiths for us to assume that everybody sitting in the room is a Christian. I wonder how many newcomers of other religions (or those having none at all) are uncomfortable with the Christian ritual, and perhaps do not come back.
