On April 17, 2003 The Star Press reported that "the plan had been to unite the community in a moment of prayer. But organizers of Muncie's [IN] observance of the National Day of Prayer said they just couldn't imagine Jewish and Muslim prayers being offered at the May 1 ceremony at Muncie City Hall... 'We're praying in the name of the Father Creator, Jesus and the Holy Spirit,' said Pastor William Keller. 'They have other gods to pray to...' In response, a group of local ministers plans an interfaith prayer service for later that same day at city hall."
