ATLANTA -- Having a minister in the Senate can be handy when a stand-in is needed for the chaplain of the day.

Tuesday, Sen. Hardie Davis, D-Augusta, stepped up, as he has in past sessions, to deliver a few words of Scripture about leadership and humility and to lead the senators in prayer at the start of their day.

Davis, an Augusta businessman as well as pastor, said he keeps some notes handy for just such occasion, but he usually isn’t called on until later in the session when the days stretch beyond the schedule of invited chaplains.

Lawmakers usually take turns inviting preachers to serve as chaplains.
