Longwood city leaders will no longer pray at meetings

Moment of silence to be held instead

By Cathleigh Winningham - Producer

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.
