CRA - Flag Salue - Approval of Minutes

FLAG SALUTE:

INVOCATION:        On May 16, 2006, the City Council unanimously approved the offering of a brief invocation at the commencement of all meetings of the City Council or Redevelopment Agency.  In doing so, the City Council is cognizant of its legal obligation to assure that such invocations are “legislative prayers,” and that they do not purport to advance any particular religion or religious denomination.

 

Consistent with the so-called “Burbank” prayer decision, the City Council hereby admonishes those who offer invocations to do so consistent with the current state of the law – meaning that an invocation must not be used to identify, advance, or urge a particular religious denomination, or identify a specific religion’s deity.  This evening we are pleased that our invocation will be offered by:  PASTOR DAVID BUGGS, CENTRAL BAPTIST CHURCH
