Audrey Kingstrom, HMN program coordinator and a humanist celebrant, gave a secular invocation at the beginning of a House legislative session in February. The sessions normally open with a prayer, so this was a wonderful opportunity to exercise the separation of religion and government.
Thanks to State Rep. Mike Freiberg, co-chair of the Legislature’s new Secular Government Caucus, for setting it up!

Well done, Audrey!
Dear Audrey – I shouldn’t be surprised at how well-spoken and impressively you composed and presented your invocation to this important and prominent audience – and – you outdid yourself! Outstanding job! I was afraid you were going to run out of breath at first 🙂
