Food & Drinks...

If your church is like ours, then between services you have some latte station where parishioners can get their added jolt to help them through the morning. There is probably also a table with donuts or pastries for a sugar-fix as well. Call it a sign of the times or just another indicator of the lack of manners so prevalent amongst our culture, but there has arisen the need for a sign to be erected in the foyer of the church which reminds parishioners that “Food & Drinks are not allowed in the sanctuary.” Call me an old-fogey, or just say I’m expecting too much, but when I was in high school that sign would not have been needed… we would have known not to enter the sanctuary with a cafĂ© mocha in one hand and a Krispy Kreme in the other. We understood that a certain amount of respect was expected within the sanctuary.
