community to come together at the city's nondenominational Christian
"It's important in light of all that our nation's been through ... "
With Burbank's new mayor being inducted the day before the breakfast,
the event on Thursday looks to "lift up and support both our local and
national leaders," Taylor said.
While the foundation of the prayer breakfast has its roots in
Christianity, Taylor said people of all faiths are welcome to attend.
The morning will feature a buffet including fruit, sweet rolls, eggs,
bacon, juice and coffee, as well as singing by the Burbank High School
Choir and guest speaker Stephanie Edwards. Edwards has co-hosted the
Tournament of Roses Parade for 22 years and has hosted numerous other
television and radio programs. Event sponsors are the Burbank Kiwanis
Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Master's Men and Magnolia Park Optimists.
