I live in a poor section of the city, where there is a lot of crime, drug use, and drunkenness.

I read there is a Christian movement in which Christians voluntarily move into such areas to live the Christian faith in such a way as to show Christ's love to people whose lives are pretty harsh.

I came to be here because we wanted to rent a house, and we couldn't afford one in nicer areas.

The church we have been attending is sort of an outpost of service, in addition to ordinary churchly functions.

I'm thinking it was the latter. He was a member of the congregation, as evidenced by him taking Holy Communion (like historic Christianity, we offer to those of the same confession of faith, the same communion), and Easter Sunday is the greatest celebration of the church year. He probably used the time for his meal break to attend church.

I think he would have been ready to leave immediately if he got a call that someone nearby had been shot, and I certainly expect he would draw his weapon if someone's life were threatened by a deadly weapon in church (such as happened a few years ago in some other churches--in Colorado, if memory serves).

Some rows in advance of me, I saw a uniformed police officer receiving Christ's body and blood at the communion rail.

In Illinois, it isn't common to see someone in church with a gun on them.

I live in a rough neighborhood now, and it is good to have armed protection close.kewl_glasses
