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.

I read with interest two articles regarding the purposed construction of the new Mormon temple in Newport Beach ("Timing of temple plan criticized," Jan. 18, and "Steeple stand-in to hang around longer," Jan. 19). I was dismayed to see comments that accused the local temple planners of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of being "disingenuous" and referring to the temple design as "intrusionary symbolism." I believe nothing could be further from the truth.

Young Chang For two years, Tim Nelson lived among Ukrainians suffering from poverty. They ate watered-down soup, beets, cabbages and potatoes. Kids in orphanages were shabbily dressed in the winter. Cracked windows let the air in, and uncarpeted floors froze children's feet. Nelson has been back from his Christian mission trip for more than a year now, but these images haven't faded. Of course, he remembers sunny summer days, pretty spring flowers and a winter sky that didn't look so bleak once he adjusted to his new environment.

Beginning today, neighbors of a proposed Mormon Temple will have a visual aid to understanding what it will be like to live with a 124-foot building and steeple. At about noon, a crane will go up at 2300 Bonita Canyon Drive, the site of a proposed 17,500-square-foot temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. An aircraft warning light on top of the steeple will stand in for a lighted statue of the Angel Moroni. Posts in the ground surrounded the crane will show the location and height of the temple walls.

A new temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can only be a positive factor for the city of Newport Beach and other Orange County communities. All current temples are beautiful edifices that enhance their surroundings and provide a feeling of peace to all those who view them. I too am ecstatic about this new temple. Although we are fortunate to be within driving distance of both the Los Angeles temple and the San Diego temple, to have access to these blessings only minutes away, is a dream come true.
