It was 1995 when Gordon B. Hinckley assumed the role of president and prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was a robust 84 then and had served 34 years in the senior councils of the Church. His 13 years as president were marked with a legendary energy. At 95, he traveled to dozens of countries to meet with the growing membership. Of the 124 Temples (different from ?chapels?) worldwide today, he dedicated 95! In Orange County, he selected the site after several visits, supervised the exterior and interior design of, and dedicated the Newport Beach Temple on Bonita Canyon Drive.

NEWPORT BEACH — At a distance, it looked like a typical school project. Half a dozen young people sat around a table with magazines and scissors, cutting out pictures and pasting them into booklets. A series of baskets around the table provided categories for the pictures: “families,” “flowers,” “animals,” “scenery” and simply “fun things to see.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints creates the booklets every year to send to children in the poorest parts of the world.

When the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently announced its plans to build its first Orange County temple in Newport Beach, one couldn't help but evoke visions of the temple off the Interstate 5 in La Jolla. A large white edifice reminiscent of Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty castle, the temple is hard to miss while driving to San Diego. Newport Beach Planning Director Patricia Temple -- no pun intended, of course -- says the city's Greenlight initiative will not be a problem and there will be no limit as to how big the temple can be built.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has settled with a man who claimed in a lawsuit that its leaders protected a Mormon Church counselor, who allegedly molested him for more than eight years when he was a child. Some of the alleged abuse occurred inside its Costa Mesa church. On Thursday, the Mormon church finalized its settlement with the unnamed plaintiff for $100,000, said the man’s attorney, Vince Finaldi. “In the civil system, that’s how we help compensate people for the damages they’ve suffered, with money,” Finaldi said.

Michael Miller For the next month, local residents can tour parts of the Newport Beach California Temple and can participate in one of the sacred traditions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: the three-part ascent toward the holy spirit. And they won't even need church membership to do it. From now until Aug. 20, neighbors can tour the instruction rooms of the temple and walk the rising path of the religion's faithful -- regardless of their personal ideology.

As we enter a new year, it is appropriate to reevaluate our attitudes and goals. This is particularly important when the year portends significant changes in our lives. We entered 2009 with the world economy in disrepair. Our attitude has much to do with how we deal with adversity. A few years ago, when we often had to wait in the car for an hour or more to fill our gas tanks or use the “odd-even” plan, I heard many wail that our lives would be forever changed. During the 2000 “dot-com” implosion, many felt the economy and the market would never recover.
