Longwood city leaders will no longer pray at meetings
Moment of silence to be held instead
LONGWOOD, Fla. – Longwood city leaders voted unanimously Monday to end prayers before meetings.
Commissioners voted 5-0 to replace the invocation portion of the meetings with a moment of silence.
Those in support of the decision say a moment of silence is more inclusive to those of different religions.
Commissioners say Longwood has only had an invocation for the past four years. Before that, the city observed a moment of silence.
