Security was so tight around Michael Jackson's home in Encino on Sunday that people might have gotten the idea that the superstar entertainer was actually at home. But he wasn't. What was at the home, though, was what was billed as the world's second largest pearl, all 577 of its silvery-pink carats. There was also more than $1 million worth of art--works by Degas and Picasso, among others.

Eleven o'clock Sunday morning, and the parking lot at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena is full. A goodly number of Porsches, Audis, Jaguars, Mercedes-Benzes and Volvos stand fender to fender, and more than a few sport bumper stickers. But these are not slogans of traditional piety such as "Jesus Is Coming Soon" or "Smile--God Loves You." The All Saints crowd prefers messages like "Question Authority," "Stop Apartheid," "Boycott Shell" and "Support Greenpeace."
