Looking back on the message put forward by conservative activists this week, that the Town of Greece v. Galloway decision allowing prayer in the public realm was a political “win,” Welton will reflect on how some faithful Americans have lost sight of the real meaning of prayer. Let’s remember that Jesus himself found public prayers problematic, saying they called attention to the one praying rather than the substance of the prayer and the personal connection with God. Submitting a sacred act to a civil body for a ruling on its appropriateness, Welton argues, is a loss for those of all faiths.
