Julia Seeley, 10, burst into the bustling kitchen in a church hall shortly before 5 p.m. and shouted, "There's buses here!" The first guests began arriving nearly an hour early for a traditional Thanksgiving feast that was still in the making, Although they were preparing about 200 meals, organizers of the 31st annual Greater Towson Jaycees dinner for seniors remained unruffled and on task. They mixed stuffing with herbs and broth and tended steaming caldrons brimming with sweet potatoes, green vegetables and sauerkraut, relying on the dining room help to tend to the guests.

The unconventional plays at Baltimore's Single Carrot Theatre often involve equally unconventional seating arrangements. You never quite know what you'll be facing on stage or literally how you'll be facing it. Young Jean Lee's "Church" is thematically true to form, but the seating is notable for its conventional configuration. Actually, it's true to the spirit of this play that the audience sits in two sections of seats divided by a narrow central aisle. Much as in a church, we look up to a stage that's anchored by an imposing pulpit that's backed by the slide projection of a stained glass window.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- The worst fears of Pakistan's Christian minority were realized yesterday when gunmen stormed into a church service in the southern city of Bahawalpur, spraying bullets. They killed 16 people, including the pastor. The attack, on Protestants who were nearing the end of a service they hold in a Catholic church, was a reminder of the violent passions and sectarian tensions at work here as the United States attacks Islamic radicals in nearby Afghanistan. "This thing has been building and building," said the Rev. Jim Nuttal, 65, of Boston, one of two Dominican priests who serves St. Dominic's Catholic Church, the site of the attack.

The congregation of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Druid Hill Avenue will hold Sunday services at Pier Six Pavilion at the Inner Harbor this weekend after a two-alarm fire damaged the church's steeple Wednesday night. The fire, which officials are blaming on a lightning strike, didn't spread beyond the steeple and bell tower, Fire Department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright said, but the church's interior was damaged by water. The church was vacant at the time, and no one was injured.

NANTICOKE-- --The distance between the two Methodist churches in this Eastern Shore village is little more than a mile. Yet for decades, it seemed as if a great gulf separated them. One church was black. The other was white. Though the two communities in the watermen's town got along fine, come Sunday, people went their own way. White families flocked to Nanticoke Road for prayers at the picturesque Nanticoke United Methodist Church. Black families followed the narrow roads east to the equally pretty Asbury United Methodist Church on Hickman Lane.

The pastor read out 13 names at a "service of comfort" in his East Baltimore church -- the apparent dead and injured from yesterday's rowhouse blaze a few blocks away. Gasps and sobs were the response from the hundreds of people gathered in sadness in the Ark Church sanctuary as the Rev. James L. Carter shared the names he had gathered -- still unconfirmed by authorities -- of those who perished in, or survived, the tragedy on Cecil Avenue. Four of the dead were children, he said -- the youngest just 3 years old. "We can't stop the tears from flowing," Carter told the crowd at the church in the 1200 block of E. North Ave. "It's all right to cry."

Paul Bucher, the district attorney for the Wisconsin county where a man opened fire in a church service last month, killing seven others and himself, has one answer to the deadly mass shootings around the country in recent weeks: more guns. "The problems aren't the guns; it's the guns in the wrong hands," said Bucher, a Republican who recently announced his candidacy for Wisconsin attorney general. "We need to put more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Whether having that would have changed what happened is all speculation, but it would level the playing field.

HAMPSTEAD -- Marian Palmer's eyes were a little puffy and red when she left the Faith Baptist Church service in Carroll County yesterday. Twisting a well-used tissue, she said she was now confident the minister would be returning to the church.The Rev. Bert Benz, after hugging about 100 people, was on his way to Lexington, Ky., for a bone marrow transplant.Mr. Benz was diagnosed as having leukemia in August during a routine physical. The search for a bone marrow donor through both a United States registry and similar programs in Europe was fruitless, so doctors in Lexington will be transplanting marrow from his 12-year-old daughter, Lauren.

I AM NOT SURE WHEN IT HAPpened, but at some point Easter stopped being about new clothes and started being about food. I grew up in a time when Easter Sunday required a whole new outfit, from hat to shoes. As a little girl, Easter meant new patent leather Mary Janes and a bonnet with an annoying elastic string under the chin. If the holiday came late enough in the season, it might be good for a new pair of white summer sandals. When I was older, Easter meant something in navy blue and white.

Once on a train - this was long ago, about 30 years ago - there were six of us playing cards, young men and young women, all mobile in some way, literally and figuratively, upwardly and outwardly, socially and professionally. Everyone in that group had a job in a town or a city that was not the one in which they'd grown up. Everyone was from somewhere other than where they were headed. I got off the train in Baltimore. I've been here ever since. Something happened in America during my time - people moved.
