The Central Florida Freethought Community has collected several secular invocations on their website. 

Following Greece v. Galloway, people of various religious and non-religious perspectives have petitioned government officials to be included as a part of meeting invocations.

Meetings typically dominated by Judeo-Christian invocations have become more inclusive thanks to on-the-ground community activists.

My June 12, 2014 invocation — along with many others — is included among about 45 invocations listed, many in video form, on the website of the Central Florida Freethought Community.

Enjoy. As always, feel free to comment below. Which invocation, besides mine, is your favorite?
