I sincerely respect your enthusiasm regarding spirituality, I really do. This is also a subject that will quite possibly be debated until the end of time. However, the one point that those of your particular line of thought does not consider is that people with my line of thought would rather see spirituality in action, not something that is done in essentially a ‘captive audience’ situation. People have to go to work; they do not have to go to a physical structure in order to pray (or otherwise) exercise their spiritual freedoms thus they become ‘captive’ to the policies and procedures without a choice.
There are enough problems within a work environment without adding the (unspoken or not) stigma that can be attached to a certain individual who chooses not to attend a ‘prayer meeting’ while in the work place. People, in this case co-workers interact with each other based on their individual perception of each other.
There may be a co-worker who has a sincere dislike for another co-worker that is based entirely or in part on information received through the ‘grape vine’ so to speak. This information may be completely factual or completely fictitious. This is evidenced by the fact that many companies and employers are reaching the decision that governing employee’s use of Facebook, MySpace or any other social networking sites both in and out of the work environment.
If the boss, the supervisor or any other person in the upwards of an employee’s management chain is a devout (whatever) and there are individuals who consecutively ‘choose’ not to attend the Morning Prayer session for the (whatever) belief, this could seriously affect that employee’s work life. Not to say that it would happen in every situation, but there are those individuals who do not have the ability to properly separate personal from business.
Now, as great as the theory behind what could be accomplished, I have one questions for those who still advocate this ‘Pray in the Work Place’ … “Don’t you think we (as a Nation) still have a ways to go in adopting acceptable levels if tolerance for each other before we bring something as personal and as important as prayer into the work place?”
