The Rev. Robert H. Schuller has hired a Presbyterian minister from Seattle to be co-pastor of the Crystal Cathedral. Schuller will remain as head of the ministry, but in June he will turn over the day-to-day operation to the Rev. Bruce Larson, pastor of Seattle's 3,600-member University Presbyterian Church. "I am strictly the No. 2 man (at the Crystal Cathedral)," Larson, 64, said in a telephone interview. "I am there to assist Bob to help build and bless that congregation."

Bruce John Ward, a former volunteer at the Crystal Cathedral, pleaded not guilty Thursday in Orange County Superior Court to charges that he molested a boy he met at the Garden Grove church. The 28-year-old Orange man is charged with 79 felony counts, including lewd conduct with a minor. The district attorney's office alleges that the acts occurred over three years, beginning when the youth was 14. Ward, who is free on $25,000 bond, has no previous criminal record, according to his lawyer.
ENTERTAINMENT

As some restaurants should be saved only for special events, some concert venues should be used only for musical marathons, anniversaries or other gala occasions. The Crystal Cathedral, home of that huge, 12-year-old amalgam of two mammoth instruments--a Ruffatti and a Skinner, an organ standing five stories tall and incorporating 13,000 pipes, five manuals and 223 ranks--is such a venue.

The son of famed Orange County television evangelist Robert H. Schuller said Tuesday he had acquired cable network AmericanLife TV from the Unification Church in partnership with a private equity fund that invests in Christian media firms. The deal comes seven months after the older Rev. Schuller said he was removing his son, the Rev. Robert A. Schuller, as the only preacher of "The Hour of Power" three years after turning the long-running Christian television program over to him.

For the second time this year, the City Council this week unanimously rejected a proposal by the owner of an adult bookstore to open a juice bar featuring nude dancers. Council members cited a parking shortage and a recently approved zoning ordinance outlawing adult entertainment in residential areas in turning down bookstore owner Waldon R. Welty's proposal. Welty had proposed demolishing his adult bookstore and arcade to make room for the new business.

Churchgoers leaving Sunday services at the Crystal Cathedral were greeted by punk rockers protesting the Garden Grove church's plans to raze nearby apartments and replace them with a six-story family center. "We're concerned about the people being evicted," said Marc Eric Ely-Chaitlin, a spokesman for the group. "No one is doing anything to help them, and we're outraged that he (the Rev. Robert Schuller) thinks he can do this."

The Rev. Robert A. Schuller, ousted in October as the preacher of the long-running Christian television program "Hour of Power," has resigned as senior pastor at the Crystal Cathedral and plans to open his own ministry. Church founder Robert H. Schuller removed his son as the sole preacher on the 39-year-old television show after the younger Schuller, three years into the job, refused to rotate his role with other pastors, the church said.
TRAVEL

Year-round, people come from all over the world to walk Charleston's old streets and admire the fastidiously preserved architecture. The oldest residences were built by planters in the 1700s and 1800s as their in-town homes and by the merchants and others who shared in the wealth of the colony's rice (and, later, cotton) trade. In size, design and decoration, each home announced its owner's wealth and status. They still do.

It's gleaming white, cost nearly $24 million to build and has become a splashy and talked-about civic presence even before its official debut. So intense is the curiosity stirring among the general populace that more than 500,000 visitors are expected to show up during a six-week, once-in-a-lifetime open house early this year. "No one will ever mistake this for a tilt-up building in an industrial park," said Clyde Romney, who is planning the open house.
