When the legislature is in session, as it was through June, Sister Sheila Walsh is on the go early in the morning. She leaves the pretty Spanish-style house on the tree-lined street where she lives with three other members of the Sisters of Social Service, drives to her cramped, sunny office a short sprint from the Capitol, catches up on phone messages and sets the volunteers up for the day. Then it's off at a fast clip to the Capitol to lobby the legislators--often on into late-night sessions.

Nearly 17,000 women are expected to pack the Pond of Anaheim next weekend for a Women of Faith Joyful Journey conference, one of more than a dozen such gatherings in U.S. cities this year. More than 150,000 have registered for the 1997 evangelical Christian rallies, which observers have likened to the all-male Promise Keepers' outdoor events.

Organizers of the fourth annual Women of Faith gathering expect 19,000 this weekend in the city. The event is billed as a female counterpoint to Promise Keepers, although there is no formal connection between the organizations. "Our conferences are both gender-specific, biblically based and focus on putting your faith in the person of Jesus Christ," said Mary Graham, vice president of conference development for Women of Faith.

Jennifer Hoffer, 26, had never been under the same roof with 15,000 women. And it was scary. But it also was wonderful, she said. Hoffer, a Loma Linda resident, was among thousands who gathered Friday for the second annual Women of Faith Joyful Journey Conference at the Pond of Anaheim. "In everyday life, we can get so caught up in the daily grind that we sometimes lose sight of God," she said. "This is a great way to bring us all together."

The death of Sister Sheila Walsh, believed to have been the first Roman Catholic nun in the nation to be a full-time registered lobbyist, reminded me of how many other activist nuns have contributed so forcefully and significantly to the causes of the poor (or, as Sister Sheila preferred, the less stigmatized “people living in poverty”), the homeless, the victims of warfare. Nuns dedicate their lives to service in the name of God, and that service can be -- and should be allowed to be -- more than pastoral.

Northern California warmed up Saturday from a storm that dumped rain, hail and so much snow that it buried the record downfall that trapped a passenger train for four days in the 1950s. But the reprieve from the kind of weather that closed main highways linking California and Nevada and caused power outages for 20,000 customers Friday could be short, the National Weather Service said.

Gov. Pete Wilson's long-standing desire to deny higher welfare payments to mothers who give birth while on aid has become one of the first casualties of his prolonged budget impasse with the Legislature. A new regulation called "the family cap," prohibiting poor mothers from collecting aid for any child born after they have been on welfare at least 10 months, had been scheduled to go into effect this Friday, but has been postponed indefinitely.
