Meeting prayers are appropriate

Re Prayers axed at council meetings.
We are a Christian country – the Queen rules as a Christian monarch. We pray for the lost at the Cenotaph.
Most of us bury our dead with a prayer and a few hymns.
So, a prayer before council meetings seem appropriate.
As for the mayor’s chaplain – I love the tradition of a chaplain and hope it is retained by the more thoughtful of our future Mayors.
Well done Tim!
