Last night after I’d gotten home, I sat down and watched a re-broadcast of Chanel 7 News. And I listened with particular interest to the piece on Church Safety.
Church Safety, in particular, the safety of the other parishioners in my Church was one of the reasons I stopped going to Church. Every Sunday when I arrived at Church, The Stalkers were already there waiting and eager to get started with their screams and taunts. I know they disrupted the Service for me and I’m sure the rest of the Church felt the same way.
But mostly, I was appalled at how little respect people have today for the House of God. I felt so bad that my Church members had to listen to all their garbage but so did God.
I maybe crazy, but at least I have the good sense not to act a fool in God’s house. I just wish others could put down their imaginary (and sometimes real ones) grudges and do the same.
