The religion I choose to observe for my fieldwork project is Catholicism. In order to complete the fieldwork assignment required for this paper I attended St. Lawrence Church on 5225 N. Himes Avenue in Tampa, FL. One of the reasons I chose to observe Catholicism for my fieldwork project is because it is a prominent religion throughout the world. In addition to the US, Catholicism is widely supported within Europe and Latin American countries. Another reason I chose Catholicism is because I found it to be relatively different from my own religion, Hinduism. I favored St. Lawrence Church over some of the other catholic churches in the area due to the fact that a few of my friends were already part of the community. Also, St. Lawrence Church
One could confidently say that in 1939, an historic event took place in Methodism. It brought the Methodist Protestant Church (MPC) which was separated from the Methodist Episcopal Church (MEC) in 1828 over the issue of lay representation at the Conference levels and other issues and the Methodist Episcopal Church, North and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South which were split in 1844 over the issue of slavery. These denominations were reunited forming the Methodist Church, however the road of the reunification was not easy at all. The sad part of the reunion was that blacks are segregated into a separate Central Jurisdiction.

Lee Teter created his painting Reflections in 1988 using oils on canvas. Just as the title suggests, the painting’s subject is reflections on the Vietnam Memorial Wall. The painting belongs to a private collection owned by Teter himself. In Reflections, Teter depicts a man leaning on the Vietnam Memorial Wall as soldiers reflect back on him, captures on canvas these reflections using muted hues, and immortalizes the loss and struggle of those affected by the Vietnam War.
He accepted a position as the assistant to the great AME Bishop Morris Brown in 1844. He became responsible for overseeing expansion in the western regions. His success was so highly tremendous that he was designated Saint Paul of the AME church. He helped initiate 72 new congregations and 47 churches which was a highly advanced arrangement between 1841 and 1844. His communique of his activities made the delegates in the AME General Conference so highly impressed that they elected him to the denomination’s Fourth Bishop in 1844. Quinn went on to take the arduous responsibility of the AME organizational operations in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan Kentucky, and Missouri. His work in Kentucky and Missouri included considerable risk because the recruitment by churches of slaves in those states was deemed a capital
Texas’s first African American woman novelist was also a biographer, diarist, educator, publisher, and librarian. Lillian B. Horace was born on April 29, 1880 in Jefferson, Texas. Her parents were Thomas Armstead and Mary Ackard. The family moved to Fort Worth, Texas when Lillian was a young toddler.

Barton W. Stone (1772-1844) was an evangelist and the founder of the Christian Church. He was born near Port Tobacco, Maryland to a farming family with Episcopalian traditions. However, when the family relocated to Virginia, Stone enrolled in an academy run by a Presbyterian pastor in Guilford, North Carolina and underwent religious conversion. From that time forward, the church became his life.
Within the pantheon almost all lines draw the viewers eyes to the Oculus. Another key element of the pantheon aside from the Oculus are the coffers, in addition to providing weight reduction within the dome the concentric rings created by the coffers radiate out from the Oculus carrying the ring down to meet the wall mimicking the Oculus (see fig. 1). Also present within the coffers are vertical line that converge at the Oculus. Both elements that bring attention to the focal point of the building. This trend continues onto the walls where the rectangular window like recesses in the walls are adorned with a pediment pointing upwards, likewise on the floor where rounded pillars are again capped with a pediment. furthermore, the floor of the pantheon is a collage of shaped with alternating circles and squares decorating the floor mirroring the square coffers and circular Oculus

Upon beginning this assignment, my main issue was finding a historical site worth writing about. I did not want to be stuck with something typical or predictable. I wanted to try and find a site that was of significance to American Politics and to the community that it resided in. I have always held a strong interest in civil rights and the difficulties of the minorities to gain equality in America. I also knew from previous studies that the churches often held a great amount of influence in the progress of the African American people when fighting for that equality. I decided then, that my passion in the assignment could be best found in a New York City Landmark that held significance to the civil right struggle and was or was of some relation
In early August of 2009, I embarked on a long drive from the beautiful state of Virginia
Ministering to the church of God requires two traits: sacrifice and commitment. Few men possess either of these things, and even fewer are willing to work toward them. Yet, there is a rare breed of individuals who innately have these traits. One such individual went by the name of J.D. Tant. Throughout his entire life, Tant happily committed himself to the Lord and sacrificed earth’s treasures to labor on His behalf. Even 75 years after his death, his contributions to the Lord’s church still remain as a testimony to his dedication to the truth and his love for God’s people. Examining Tant’s life is certain to prove this assertion.
From the outside of the church I could tell it was a smaller church, but I was very happily surprised by the comfortable size of the church, not so big that one feels lost in the crowed but also not so small that one feels like an intruder in a tight nit group. I was also very happily surprised by the age of the church. From my background I am used to seeing an older congregation and from my study of the Lutheran church I expected the same. But though this may seem to be a more traditional, the church the congregation was rather young. I also expected the dress to be more formal, but again the church was very similar to the Baptist churches I have been a
Humans are not able to love if we are not honest. There’s a verse in the bible that
“In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.” I said as i dutifully made the sign of the cross and picked up my book of hymns. As the organist began playing, I stared at the large golden cross that hung above the altar, its metallic sheen contrasting with the deep green marble. I was baptized as a Catholic, attended a Catholic elementary school and high school, and attended church every Sunday with my family. I made my first reconciliation and received a small silver cross necklace with a tiny peridot in the center. When I made my first communion, I wore a white dress with all the other little girls in my class, and had a big party with my family afterwards where I was given gifts of well-wishes and love from my family.
