Iam 15 years old and a former student of the Sherman Oaks Presbyterian Nursery School. I felt it my responsibility to write and share with you my wonderful and loving experiences there. Before this problem ever arose, I used to look upon the school as a place where I could feel loved and safe. All of the teachers, both Christian and Jewish, devoted their love and their time to give me a wonderful foundation for life. One of the things that I most liked about the school was that it opened my eyes to all of the different cultures and people that existed in the world around me. Look at our torn-up world today!

"We've got the same staff, same director and the majority of the same parents," Kathy Fisher, a member of the new Sherman Oaks Nursery School's board of directors, said Tuesday.

Michael Landon, directing an episode of his television series "Highway to Heaven," stood at the church altar and explained the upcoming scene to his congregation of extras, well-dressed and well-groomed, and neatly aligned in pews for a staged day of worship. Actor Dennis Lipscomb, playing the role of the Rev. Tobias Bennett, was to give a sermon on religious tolerance. "I want you to be silent and attentive," Landon told the extras.

Pat Hawkinson thought it was just a formality when she was asked to reapply for her job as director of a Christian preschool. After all, she had been in charge of Whittwood Baptist Preschool for 18 years and figured the new owners of the school, Morningstar Christian Chapel, would want to keep things running smoothly. The application made her a little uncomfortable, though.
