I'd like to first say to Barbara Vickroy ("Immigration policy, religion don't overlap," Dec. 1 News-Press) that polls don't define a religion. Even if 99% of people voted for Proposition 187, they still won't qualify as real Christians. They might qualify as Republican Christians for whom raising taxes to help the poor is the same thing as teaching evolution to their children, but they won't qualify as real Christians. The reason they won't qualify as real Christians is because Christianity has two very simple themes that are repeated in the New Testament: compassion and love.

The La Crescenta Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has new leadership. Calvin Bayles, long-time resident of La Crescenta, is the congregation's new bishop or head pastor. Bayles works full-time as a trial attorney. Although it is challenging to balance work and family with leading such a large congregation, Bishop Bayles has chosen two excellent counselors to assist him: Brian Ostler and Kendall Hales, also long-time residents of La Crescenta. Hodges is executive secretary to Bishop Bayles, and Jeppsen functions as ward clerk.

Do you ever consider that Paul, whom the Holy Spirit used to write a majority of the New Testament, was actually persecuting Jesus before he was called to serve him? I have heard people say that they are not worthy to serve Jesus, that if I knew what they had done, I would be disgusted. I often tell people in my therapy office that I have probably heard it before or it is within the realm of what I have heard before ? and that I will never look at them in a way that brings shame.

Mayor already treats council as full-time job Why am I not surprised that Mayor Bob Yousefian wants to make being on the City Council a full-time job? He has spent his time in office "teaching" everyone everything. One certain incident that sticks in my mind still is when he held forth with a monologue during a meeting to explain to the public what the difference between a republic and a democracy is. He probably wants to commit full-time to teaching the citizens of Glendale the knowledge we lack.

Light on the Corner Church Pastor Jon Karn recently had the privilege of doing something most fathers never get to do ? baptize their own child. For Karn, baptizing his daughter Kiana, 8, on June 24 was one of the happiest days of his life. "I am delighted to baptize anyone who has decided to follow Jesus, but to have the honor of baptizing my own daughter is a thrill beyond words. I will never forget this wonderful day," wrote Karn in an e-mail. "Kiana's baptism almost made me cry. It's exciting to see my little girl make such an important grown-up decision," said Karn's wife, LeLani.

Alex Coolman NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- In 1966, Marilyn Cathcart started on a project to translate the New Testament. She's nearly finished. The project has stretched on for more than three decades because of the extraordinary difficult involved with creating the translation. The language she was working in, Cacua, had no written alphabet. For that matter, the Glendale-raised 64-year-old said, the Cacua people for whom she was creating the translation had no ability to read or write.

What is your niche in life? What do you feel called to do? What are you passionate about? Niches are things we excel in and feel born to do. A niche gives us a feeling of purpose psychologically and spiritually. A niche can be anything from a call into medicine to a call to the mission field. It may include science or art, or both. It can be singing, writing, sports, teaching, ministering to the homeless, cooking. Some are artistic geniuses and their works evoke deep emotions within others that minister to their souls.

Whether a seasoned pastor or a small child, we can all learn more about the Bible. I find myself continually challenged as I read the Word. It is my desire for my children to experience this as well. Even with five years of Bible college and 13 years preaching experience, I still find new and exciting lessons within my Bible's pages. There are many ways to make learning the Bible exciting for children and adults alike. One way is to read through the Bible in its entirety.

Father Louis Vitale, a Franciscan friar, was recently fined by a federal magistrate in Santa Barbara for trespassing at an Air Force base to lead an antiwar protest. Vitale has been arrested hundreds of times over the years during his demonstrations, which he says are inspired by the teachings of Christ and other spiritual leaders who preached nonviolence. Pacifism is a central belief of nearly all religions, but given the dangers we face in the world, to what extent can we truly hope to be nonviolent?

For some time now, I have considered the fact that while we must use the Bible as our universal truth on which to model our lives, the people and families written about within the Bible were at best dysfunctional. While I am a firm believer that the Word of God must be opened and used in our public meetings and applied to our personal life, I also believe we must take into account the grace Jesus brought us in the New Testament. One ought to also take the context and historical setting into consideration before we rigidly apply it to our lives today.
