At New Covenant United Methodist we have a Sumter County Deputy directing traffic but no armed Deputies in the Worship Center that I know about. However, all are welcome. We all go because we are sinners not because we are good.

I would think because they have to be out there ready to direct traffic that while they are waiting, they go to church. They are already armed as officers. I doubt they are going to leave their gun in their squad car.

If you watch them during service they follow the collection money from the back to the front and watch it deposited in the room to the right of the altar. That is why they are there.

It's really a shame that we are told every day to leave in fear.

Perhaps I was right after-all in my initial reason why the police were present...however they were asked why they were there and the reason that they gave...well read the police response given at the time.

To me ..follow the $$$$$ the Church is usually packed which of course means of course Dough...Rea....Meeeeeeeeeee in the collection basket, it used to be a plate now they are pretty good size Basket's.

Life is good !!

Seriously?

Anyone who has been to St. Peter's Basilica can't help but be completely overwhelmed at the riches exhibited just in that one location.

My wife, a lifelong Catholic, actually weeped thinking about it.

Since I don't want to turn the thread into one that will get locked, I won't even get into asking why so much more is needed.

A few weeks back, at St. Vincent dePaul, Fr. Pietro made an announcement before Mass that the deputies are hear to protect us now," don't worry all the doors are guarded, etc" the deputies are always there to direct traffic and we have cars coming in for the next Mass while we are leaving. Did not know why, maybe a threat from Islamic Terrorists? Or they came in to keep cool in the A/C. They couldn't stay for whole Mass as they direct traffic.

No explanation from Father other just him saying don't worry.

We were there last April. Had to go thru metal detectors and have bags X-Rayed. At the other Basilicas also. Too many terrorists.

For centuries people have tried to give glory to God by building beautiful churches. People of all faiths have done this since the beginning of civilization. There are mosques, temples, pyramids and shrines.

As for St. Timothy's I can tell you why the collection is taken and tell you of all of the good works and outreach projects they do. But if you don't know, it doesn't matter.

God knows.
