Laguna Beach is probably better known for its scenic vistas and art galleries than for its churches. The city of 24,000 has more than a dozen places of worship, including the Unitarian Universalists Fellowship hall and a Hare Krishna temple. The seaside village's first church was built about 100 years ago on 2nd Street, according to the book "The First 100 Years in Laguna Beach" by Merle and Mabel Ramsey. The church was called the Laguna Chapel, according to the book.

A "Summer Sorcery" benefit scheduled for Monday by the Laguna Playhouse has been called off in the face of charges by a local minister that the event would be an occasion "to mix alcohol and the practice of the occult." Invitations to the fund-raiser promised a "Magical Evening Under the Stars" that would include "Divine Dancing, Enchanting Edibles, Decadent Desserts, Liberal Libation . . . Prediction and Prognostications by Professional Astrologers, Palmists, Crystal Gazers, Numerologists, Psychics, Clairvoyants."

Three cheers to you and writer Benjamin Epstein for a crowd-drawing interview with Scott Pauley of the Carolinian Consort. ("Joyous Homecoming," March 30). My phone rang with inquiries, the audience filled Laguna Presbyterian Church sanctuary (maybe 250 people comfortably spread throughout the main floor and the balcony), and it was a fascinating, musically rich evening. Scott and the young women of the ensemble were (warmly! happily!) overwhelmed by their Orange County reception.

I was on the East Coast for the purpose of attending the Harvard commencement when the Los Angeles Times called me to ask how I felt about the Laguna Playhouse's canceling its "Summer Sorcery" fund-raising benefit at Moss Point, an event that the Rev. Jerry Tankersley of the Laguna Presbyterian Church called "a mixture of alcohol and the practice of the occult." So completely shocked by this response to what they thought was an innocent fun party, the playhouse canceled the sold-out event and returned the money to those many supportive friends who felt that this would be an extremely entertaining evening.

Re "Laguna High Divided Over Alleged Drug Use by Coach" (Oct. 26): Since I was interviewed and quoted in the above named article, I would appreciate the chance to more fully state what I said. It is true that I said we are seeking to be a community of grace in Laguna Beach. However, I also made it clear that it would be a mistake to reinstate Cedrick Hardman as football coach during this school year at Laguna Beach High School. In my letter to the school board I wrote: "To bring him back during this school year will make a mockery of what we have all been trying to do with our children and youth of our school district."
