Today Leonard Grossman, a conservative Jew, said the prayer before the Chamber of Commerce breakfast.  Several years ago we decided that the way to resolve the be true to your identity vs. be respectful of other religions tension is to pray in Jesus' name when I pray instead of trying to pray a generic offend no one prayer and then occasionally invite Jews, Buddhists and Muslims to pray authentically in their way.

Today, everyone seemed to feel good about that way of doing it.
