Jim Wallis, founder of the progressive Christian magazine Sojourner and author of "God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It," called on Christian leaders at a recent conference on politics and spirituality in Pasadena to join him in a national movement for "good religion." Wallis believes the Christian right's preoccupation with abortion and same-sex unions misrepresents their faith. "How did the faith of Jesus come to be known as pro-rich, pro-war, and only pro-American?"

LOLITA HARPER It was comforting to see that the KOCE drama was finally over when a judge ruled that the station's sale by the Coast Community College District to the KOCE Foundation was, in fact, OK. Well, it was comforting until the next paragraph, in which Daystar officials -- those who run a very large, national Christian broadcast company -- "vowed to appeal." Something about "Christians" fighting tooth and nail for a small, public station simply does not sit well with me. So, I contacted the officials at Daystar.

June Casagrande If you're going to sweat, you're going to need some inspiration. And for that, the women of Body and Soul go straight to the source. Body and Soul Ministries is a program of aerobics and strength training to contemporary Christian music that some find nothing short of heavenly. "There's a joy in doing it. It's such a blessing to work with these women," said Rosa Cermak, who led about a dozen of her students in a 45-minute aerobics demonstration at the fair on Friday.

Young Chang Being a Christian doesn't have to mean planting yourself in a church pew and singing age-old hymns. These four college students -- they're hip and have the look of a boy band -- are as funny as stand-ups and passionate like pastors. Jeff Hanson, 20, wants to one day minister to youth. Shawn York, 23, is a music major and hopes to direct high school choirs. Brandon Tyra, 20, wants a career in cinematography. Tim Larson, 19, is headed for acting.

Young Chang For those who like to plant seeds and watch life grow, Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa might metaphorically qualify as one of the largest plants ever. What began as a little church with 25 members on Church Street in Costa Mesa is now a 30,000 member congregation with a chapel on the border of Costa Mesa and Santa Ana and thousands of branch churches in almost every state in the nation and overseas. Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is one of the fastest-growing churches in the country and Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque, is the largest in that city.

Regarding the issue of gay-straight alliance clubs, especially in light of the Dec. 9 letter from Elizabeth Richards of Concerned Women for America, Corona del Mar ("Gay-straight clubs are wrong," Dec. 9): How embarrassing to the majority of Christians who desire to spread the accepting love of Jesus that the most vocal opposition to gay-straight alliance clubs comes from self-identified Christian voices? These often are the ones who worked to get campuses open to religious clubs; now they want to prevent the free-exercise rights of other good citizens.

As newspapers are generally secular animals, the words I push together in this column have purposely never contemplated matters of spiritual faith in our fair twin cities. That's because in a nation where the freedom of religion is revered, the nuances of different faiths, I think, are best wrestled with in the home and in the chapel. In the mosque, the synagogue and the temple. And, certainly, within the private sanctuary of the individual. But some days ago, following a lengthy phone chat with Aviva Goelman -- the vivacious executive director of the Costa Mesa Senior Center -- it occurred to me that an exception might be in order.

A couple of days ago I received a question from Christian in Newport Beach that I think summarizes how a lot of homeowners might be feeling right now. Christian writes, “I want to get rid of my lawn completely; I’m tired of watering, fertilizing and mowing it. Also, I know that we are going into a drought and I don’t want to just have a brown lawn if water restrictions go into effect. My problem is, what do I replace it with, so that all my neighbors don’t complain about my yard not fitting in to the look of the neighborhood.

In response to questions about part-time Newport-Mesa resident and pro golfer Tiger Woods, who recently admitted to having extramarital affairs, Fox News commentator Brit Hume had this to say: “He’s said to be a Buddhist; I don’t think that faith offers the kind of forgiveness and redemption that is offered by the Christian faith. So my message to Tiger would be, ‘Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world.

A week had gone by since the Estancia High baseball team saw live pitching. The Eagles returned to the field on Saturday and they almost went hitless. Their first game back was in the Beach Pit Classic opener at home against Sun Valley Village Christian. With their opponent having won two games during the week to stay in a first-place tie in the Olympic League, the Eagles figured to see someone who hasn't thrown a whole lot for the Crusaders. They were right, as David Barta had pitched just one inning this season.

The fashion in which the Sage Hill School baseball team walked off the field Friday wasn't pretty. Nevertheless, the host school will take the result, a 10-9 walk-off win against Saddleback Valley Christian. "I couldn't believe it," Sage Hill Coach Dominic Campeau said of watching his team rally for four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, two errors leading to the first and last runs. "If you're going to play ugly, and you get the win, it's always a positive. It's not the effort.

A group interested in founding a private Christian high school in Newport Beach found a possible location at the site of their alma mater, a school that has since been converted into the West Newport Community Center. Newport Beach is hoping to get a school to open at the location, which would be shared with the city as it works to finalize a location for a new community center, officials confirmed Wednesday. The property seemed ideal to David Bahnsen, vice president of Pacifica Christian High School of Orange County's board of trustees, which is interested in the former site of Newport Christian High School.

Twelve minutes into the boys' soccer match at Sage Hill School, the scoreboard showed the Lightning ahead, 9-0. The hosts led Brethren Christian in the first half, just not by that many goals on Thursday. Maybe the scoreboard operator tried to predict the outcome on a rainy night. The operator wasn't that off when it came to the final score of the Academy League match. Sage Hill earned a convincing 8-0 victory, improving to 9-0-1 in league. Next week the regular season wraps up with Sage Hill playing host to defending league champion St. Margaret's.

There have been times when the biggest challenge associated with dealing with the UC Irvine big men fell upon airline ticket agents trying to find them all comfortable seats. The burden, these days, rests more on opposing men's basketball players and coaches on game nights, as Coach Russell Turner's legion of length continues to be potent, productive and, just as impressively, protective, on the court. John Ryan (6-foot-10), Will Davis (6-8) and Mamadou Ndiaye (7-6) combined to produce eight of the Anteaters' 10 blocked shots in a 91-56 dispatching of NAIA representative San Diego Christian in the final nonconference game of the regular season on Saturday at the Bren Events Center.

UCI's eight nonconference wins are its most since the 2000-01 team went 9-2 against nonconference foes in the regulars season on the way to a 25-5 record.

Q: A family in our apartment complex comes from a country that isn't Christian. Do you think they'd be offended if we asked them for Christmas dinner? We don't know them very well, but I can tell they're kind of lonely. — Mrs. E.N. A: I seriously doubt if they would be offended. In fact, they might be honored to be invited into an American home. The Bible says, "Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality" (Romans 12:13). At the same time, ask God to help you to be sensitive to them and their customs.
