After I delivered an invocation yesterday at a meeting of the DuPage County Board in Illinois, I exited the room since my work there was done. I wasn’t there for the rest of the meeting. So it was only last night that I found out what happened in my absence.
Apparently a discussion about the usefulness of invocations — a continuation of the discussion that prompted me to request to speak in the first place — occurred later in the meeting, and things got heated.
One reason is because board member Dawn DeSart left printed copies of a blog post about why we don’t need invocations on the desk of each of her colleagues. (I don’t know where the post is from or who wrote it. I had nothing to do with the handout.)
