Pastor Rick Warren is back in the pulpit Sunday at Orange County's Saddleback Church, nearly four months after the suicide of his son. Warren, author of the bestselling book “The Purpose Driven Life,” was scheduled to preach at 9 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., said Kristin Cole, a spokeswoman for the church. Warren also presided over services on Saturday. Saddleback announced Warren's return on its website with a simple, “HE'S BACK!” His sermon will be part of a new series, “How to Get Through What You're Going Through,” according to the website, and Warren's wife, Kay Warren, was expected to join him for a portion of each service.

When the Times reported that LAFCO's delayed action on the Saddleback cityhood proposal sent away "300 fuming south county residents" April 20, it should be noted that nearly one-third of those in attendance were not disappointed but were, in fact, pleased that the commission heeded the advice of county counsel. In these volatile days of incorporation fever in the south county, is it any wonder that this agency is cautious? When groups try to intimidate the commission with veiled threats, "moral outrage" and litigation, it is only natural that the commissioners would carefully check for legal compliance.

7:30 TONIGHT WESTERN HIGH Both teams feature strong passing games supplemented by solid rushing attacks. Saddleback quarterback Ramon Saavedra has had a slightly better year statistically than his counterpart, Justin Rice, but the Centurions have strung together more victories. If the results against their common opponent, Corona del Mar, are any indication, then Cypress should be a strong favorite. The Centurions hammered the Sea Kings, 35-10; the Roadrunners lost to Corona del Mar, 38-35.

A student who died of burns suffered during a fire inside a Saddleback College classroom committed suicide, the Orange County Coroner concluded. Jacob Mathews, 21, of Lake Forest, died after a fire he started July 8 in a third-floor auditorium in the community college's Business/General Studies building. The fire broke out about 6:30 a.m. and Mathews was scheduled to attend a social psychology class there about half an hour later, school officials said. Firefighters found Mathews lying unconscious and without a pulse inside the classroom, where they battled flames that caused an estimated $400,000 in damage.

"Home Run" is the heartfelt and deeply religious story of a baseball star's struggle with alcoholism and the Christian faith-based recovery group that gets him through. The first moments seem promising as images of a peaceful stretch of farm country fill up the screen. A weathered red barn sits in the distance next to a sprawling white farmhouse with a wraparound porch. But as the camera goes in close, something is wrong - the red is too red, the worn spots too worn. The metaphor is seriously overplayed and we are only in the first inning.

When in pain, pray. When you worry, worship. When in grief, share it in your small group. The Facebook post, sent in the early morning hours Friday by famed pastor Rick Warren, was short on words but deep in meaning. Since the suicide death of his son a week earlier, the pastor of Orange County's sprawling Saddleback Church has indeed been sharing his grief. But his "small group" includes not only his parishioners, but nearly a million Twitter followers as well as those who read his Facebook page.

Inside Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, they recalled a lively girl who always had a smile on her face and loved to write songs.
