Deepa Bharath City planning commissioners will try to help achieve a compromise, which has eluded proponents of a local church's expansion plans and neighbors who fear the plans' effect, the commission's chairman said on Friday. Planning commissioners had called for St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church and the dissenting neighbors to give them a proposed list of operating conditions, which both sides submitted on Thursday, city officials said. The conditions include items such as hours of operation and occupancy limits for the church, which leaders are trying to revamp with a $20-million, 21,714-square-foot expansion plan, anchored by a new youth and family center and new parking.

o7 "The Christian church is not a static institution. It is men and women who flesh out in daily life the meaning of faith, the reality of the risen Christ."f7 -- Myron Augsburger. "Church is a place, church is people, church is potlucks!" I don't remember where I heard that definition so many years ago, but I'll never forget the phrase. However, I think "church" is best described by actions, not by words. Last summer, my daughter Amy and I were the fortunate recipients of church-in-action as we left the building one evening.

Story by Paul Clinton; photo by [tk] Creating a safe atmosphere for children at Halloween gives Ellis Dandy a strong sense of purpose. Dandy volunteered his time as one of the crew of organizers of Calvary Church's annual Halloween festival. Leaders of the Newport-Mesa church each year bring a mini-carnival to their property to entertain costumed children. "This is just something we do as a way to reach out to the community and to provide a safe environment," Dandy said.

As the Newport Beach City Council listened to debate on the proposed expansion of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church Thursday night, it seemed that everyone in the audience had already made up their minds. On one side of City Council chambers, the church's supporters wore stickers reading "Yes." On the other side, the church's neighbors wore buttons that said "No." At press time, the council had listened to pleas from both sides and several hours of public testimony, but it had not yet voted on the project.

Luis Pena A beloved Catholic priest bid farewell to his parish on Sunday with laughs and tears from his congregation. Msgr. William McLaughlin, better known as Father Bill by his parishioners, began his service at Our Lady Queen of Angels in 1984. He plans return to Ireland, where he spent his youth, after 46 years in the priesthood. Listening to confessions made him feel part of the community. "I enjoyed listening to the goodness of our people as they confess their sins ... as they bare their souls to a priest," said McLaughlin.

Years ago, while I was visiting a South American city's cathedral at a time when the country was under a brutal military regime, I overheard a tour guide complaining to his tour group that there were members of the clergy preaching politics. This was not the role of the church, he emphasized. "People don't come to church to hear politics," was the view he expressed. "The church should stick to religious matters. " Would you want to belong to a church that was content to sing hymns while people nearby were being tortured?
