Jonathan Adler says he has a missionary's zeal for great design, and perhaps to that end, the New York-based ceramicist and decorator is coming to Southern California to preach. Adler will appear Nov. 8 at Barnes & Noble in Santa Monica and Nov. 9 at Barnes & Noble in Newport Beach to celebrate the launch of two books: "Happy Chic: Colors" and "Happy Chic: Accessorizing. " Adler wrote them simultaneously, a process that he describes as "agonizing but with a great payoff, like childbirth," and says that he'll add to the series in the coming years.

The Easter story is celebrated each year with such fanfare and splendor that one might think it was all just one big convincing event in the gospels. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If ever there was doubt about the Easter story, it did not begin with the Scientific Revolution, the Age of Skepticism or more recent Post-Theism. Doubt was there at the beginning in the gospel stories. Take the gospel of Mark, for example. The oldest manuscripts of Mark's gospel end the 16th chapter with these words in verse 8: "So [the women]

Alex Coolman Newton Wayland is cooking musical stew, stirring up the ingredients of a dish called Ray Charles. Charles comes to the Orange County Performing Art Center to play with the Pacific Symphony Pops tonight and Saturday. And Wayland, the conductor for both evenings, has put together a program intended to illustrate the Georgia crooner's roots. The 69-year-old singer has been called "the genius of soul," for his powerful, gospel-tinged vocal style and his seemingly unlimited powers of composition.

TONY DODERO Thursday morning found me groggily wandering into a gathering at the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in Costa Mesa. No, I was not there seeking redemption. Besides, I'm sure many of you think that would be impossible anyway. I was there for my annual attendance at the Newport-Mesa-Irvine Interfaith Council National Day of Prayer breakfast. The event, which is mimicked at churches nationwide and has roots dating back 54 years, is the place to hear the prayers and thoughts of those who share the Sikh, Bahai, Hindu, Islamic, Mormon, Jewish and Christian faiths all at the same time and in the same room, without a war breaking out. Indeed, the reason for the existence of the interfaith council, a coalition of diverse religious groups, is to promote unity and open discussion between faiths.

During the three decades that have passed since South Coast Repertory first introduced “Godspell” to local audiences, most of our community theaters and colleges have offered their interpretations of this popular rock-gospel musical. One notable exception has been Vanguard University, which would have been a logical venue for this show, steeped as it is in religious education. Now this Costa Mesa collegiate company has weighed in with a highly energetic as well as a particularly visceral version.

Like many others attending the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Gospel Concert Sunday, Laura Wright brought money with her to donate to the fund at the end of the evening. For Wright, 26, giving to this charity held special meaning, since she would be giving back to the very scholarship fund that made it possible for her to finish her college studies just a few years ago. Wright, who graduated from UC Irvine with a degree in engineering in 2004, now runs her own marketing firm in North Hollywood.

Nigel Bailey PRO Regarding the St. Andrew's church growth, with all the rhetoric about who said what 22 years ago about future expansion plans, it seems that a point is being missed. There is no written agreement binding either party. If it had been a major point of negotiation, I can assure you there would have been a written record. In the meantime, the thing that is being missed is that with all of the conversation about "expansion," it has not been pointed out that not one single seat is being added to the sanctuary.

Editor's note: This is the second of two parts. On Sundays, I usually attend services at Rock Harbor Church in Costa Mesa. On a recent Sunday, I needed a musical spiritual uplifting. I drove 30 minutes to Saddleback Church in Lake Forest to visit the Praise Tent for the desired musical spiritual renewal. The Praise Tent is the only place I know in Orange County where you can find a foot-stomping, hand-clapping and voice-raising, Holy Spirit-uplifting gospel music experience.

Q: I heard that the Bible says the world is going to get worse and worse as the end of time approaches. Is that true? We've had some horrible crimes in our city lately, and I can't see how things can get much worse. — Mrs. K.P.K. A: Yes, the Bible does indicate that as the time for Christ's return approaches, evil and social chaos may well intensify. The Bible says that "evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived" (2 Timothy 3:13). Are we living in those days?

In the church we have liturgical seasons. We begin our year with the season of Advent. We celebrate Christmas and Epiphany, move into a bit of Ordinary Time, and then it's on to Ash Wednesday and the Lenten season. We celebrate Easter and its season. Then we have the day of Pentecost with its fiery red, and soon it's back to Ordinary Time. We're into the "low season" of Ordinary Time as we approach "rally day," and we hope our church folk come back after their lazy summers of sleeping in and traveling.

Stan Bryson had become jaded by the way local Christian-based events shoved Jesus at nonbelievers. Although he enjoyed sharing his beliefs with others, more and more he noticed the events he assisted were often laden with icons of Christian culture, and at the end of the day organizers quickly closed up shop and moved on. After more than 20 years of working with Calvary Chapel members to produce amateur surf contests, Bryson was convinced more...
