Henrico Co. Board Drops Prayer Before Meetings

Pittsylvania Co., VA - Some news from Henrico County hits really close to home for the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors.

This week, board members in Henrico County decided to drop its opening prayer.

The decision came after supervisors received some complaints. One complaint came by email and says during a meeting where the board approved a plan for a mosque, the pastor's prayer ended with "in Christ's name I pray."

Before discussion the issue in their meeting, the board met in a closed session to get some legal advice about the prayer.
