The Rev. John McReynolds, 37, is preaching more than the Gospel these days. The pastor, head of one of the largest black congregations in Orange County, said a loss of family values and the decline of education are threatening the black community. "I'm concerned that only 5.5% of African-American students that graduate from high school are eligible to go to college," he said.

Alarmed that Earvin (Magic) Johnson's "safe sex" message will promote promiscuity, the Rev. John Nix-McReynolds, pastor of one of Orange County's largest black churches, Sunday preached an unusually explicit sermon on AIDS, exhorting the congregation to practice chastity. Black preachers around the nation have been moved to break their silence on the delicate issue ever since the basketball legend's disclosure earlier this month that he is infected with the AIDS virus.

Connie Jones remembers when she and her friends would skip out between Sunday school and church service to buy candy with their saved nickels at the corner store. She would spend all day at Sunday school, in worship service or doing whatever activities the Second Baptist Church of Santa Ana had scheduled.
