The following is the invocation I offered at last Wednesday’s Hennepin County Chiefs of Police Association December meeting. It was our second annual “retired Chief’s Luncheon”. Chief Dohman of the Maple Grove Police Department started the idea last year and it received great reviews. Now that I am retiring I hope that the tradition continues for years to come.
Hennepin Chiefs Association Meeting Invocation 12/05/06
We thank you once again for this opportunity to gather in the spirit of Public Safety leadership. We ask that you bless the food we receive today as nourishment for our bodies, the information we receive as nourishment for our minds and the fellowship we share as nourishment for our souls.
Specifically we say thank you today for the retired members of our association. We ask for your blessings upon those that could be with us today and for those who could not be with us, but are enjoying their retirement at different locations around the world.
Again we thank you for this time together. Please guide us as we lead those who protect and serve our communities.
