That changed last night.
Council has resurrected, so to speak, the practice of inviting clergymen from different churches to lead everyone in prayer.
Pastor Eric Schwartz of Gate Community Church led the invocation.. This church is located in Bethlehem's Banana Factory. "We don't want to just bless the community," Rev. Schwartz stated. "We want to be a blessing to the community." He noted the church volunteers every month to help the men's shelter at Victory House, and recently participated in a backpack drive to provide school supplies to children through New Bethany Ministries.
"We like our food, enjoy our families and love our God," said Pastor Schwartz.
After the meeting, Glenn Geissinger told me Council will be reaching out to different denominations for Council prayers, so he's probably saved my immortal soul.
Maybe one of them will take me.
