It's a perfect marriage of function and form, the way the small glass building perched on the ocean cliff manages to be both serene and spectacular. And it was the perfect place to get married, Diane Jones of Annapolis, Md., and Harold Grossnickle of Clearwater, Fla., agreed when they arrived at the Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes. "We wanted to be married in a place that was both intimate and inspiring," explained the bride.

Students and advocates of the Arts & Crafts style in architecture regularly invoke the names of the 19th century Englishmen John Ruskin and William Morris as its founding visionaries. Much less has been said about Joseph Worcester, a Swedenborgian minister who came to the Bay Area from New England in 1864 and built a shingle-clad cottage in Piedmont that sparked California's soon-to-be prodigious contributions to the movement Ruskin and Morris started.

Dating is complicated when you have five children. What guy wouldn't be put off by a toddler at the front door asking, "You be our new dada?" But what can you do? You can't hide your kids in the basement. My mother warned me against splitting up with my husband. "Nobody, and I mean nobody, will take you on with that menagerie," she said. But after 15 years, the kids' dad moved out, and aside from four sons, one daughter, a dog and a pony, I was all alone. The first thing I did was make a list of prospects, throwing them into three categories: No. 1: Single Men. No. 2: Miserable Married Men. No. 3: Missing Men Whom I Hadn't Seen in a While but Remembered as Cute.

A gay and lesbian caucus of the Episcopal Church wants five Episcopal delegates to the National Council of Churches replaced, charging that their opposition to "observer" status for a Los Angeles-based, largely homosexual denomination violates Episcopal Church policies. The caucus, called Integrity, is mounting a campaign to replace the five appointed delegates with Episcopalians who are active in homosexual ministries in the Episcopal Church.

Alarmed by the religious right's political clout and the erosion of support in Washington for social programs, the heads of six old-line churches met this week in the nation's capital to map a counterattack. In recent years, religious denominations with more liberal social agendas than the conservative religious right have been ineffective in their efforts to develop a political response, in part because many churches have been forced to cut their Washington staffs because of declining revenue.

When Bob Hare opened his Hermosa Beach coffeehouse in 1958, he called it the Insomniac because it was open until 3 a.m. He brewed his coffee in a 300-pound dry-cleaning boiler and served it to such high-profile members of the Beat Generation as Allen Ginsberg and Lenny Bruce, he later recalled. The coffeehouse also became a haven for folk and blues musicians and other performers. Ginsberg read his poem "Howl" and a 16-year-old Linda Ronstadt sang, Hare said in 1992 in The Times.
