Inclusive Prayers

Orthodox priest, Fr. John Parker, writes at Touchstone about prayers in public settings that are expected to be “inclusive.” I’ve always had misgivings about praying in such settings. I have done them, and prayed “with sensitivity,” but I think the best approach for me is just to decline invitations if there is any expectation, spoken or unspoken, that I must pray in accord with someone else’s conscience, and not my own.
