Lots of people in George County don't lock their doors. We trust our neighbors.

But sometimes something happens that makes you hope there were strangers passing through.

The George County Baptist Association building was broken into over the weekend. Yes, the doors were locked. One was forced open. Things were stolen, primarily the peace of mind of the secretary that works there. She has lost records that she can't re-create, as well as the feeling of relative safety at the workplace that most office workers hold.

There is something to be said for the 'fear of the Lord.' I like to think there are some people in the world that, while they might break into just about anything else, they would draw the line at a church or church-related building. What did the criminal expect to get? I think the only thing that would have been excused if taken, was left untouched: the food bank.

I hope they catch the person who did it. I hope he or she learns something that will change his or her life before it's too late.
