On April 14, 2003 The Associated Press reported that "a Christian-centered prayer service at Muncie's [IN] city hall excluding other faiths has prompted plans for a rival interfaith gathering for the same day and place... Unitarian Universalist minister Thomas Perchlik said he regrets that the May 1 observation of the National Day of Prayer will be split events... Perchlik and others planned the interfaith prayer service after Pastor William Keller, one of the organizers of Muncie's observance, said he could not imagine Jewish and Muslim prayers being offered at the ceremony."
