On June 5, 2004 IndyStar reported, "Indianapolis firefighter Michael Saahir prays five times a day at work, finding quiet time by his bed at the fire station. Bernie Lacy's family printing business hires a chaplain to talk to employees about their lives. Rachel McDuffee tries to follow Christ's way of caring for others in her treatment of employees at her Broad Ripple hair salon. Then there is the unusual reminder of serving God that an Indianapolis business owner created for himself: He pledged to give away more than half of the money he earned last year to charity, a commitment he kept by donating about $900,000 for humanitarian projects... The four Indianapolis residents are part of a growing number of Americans from different religious backgrounds who are trying to make the faith they get on the weekend a constant part of their work lives through the week."
