Bishop Franklin C. Showell has long espoused the view that the church's concern should extend beyond the spiritual needs of its congregation - and for a time he seemed to successfully practice what he preached. As an assistant pastor at the First Apostolic Institutional Faith Church in the 1980s, he helped create more than 250 units of low-income and senior housing in impoverished Baltimore neighborhoods; more recently, as head of the church founded by his family, he helped set up an affiliated day care center.

The head of a prominent East Baltimore church was found guilty yesterday of a criminal tax charge of willfully failing to turn over to the state thousands of dollars of employee withholding taxes from a funeral home he operates. Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Joseph P. Manck announced the verdict after Bishop Franklin C. Showell, pastor of First Apostolic Institutional Faith Church in Washington Hill, entered an Alford plea. The plea means that although Showell does not admit violating the law, he acknowledges that sufficient evidence exists to convict him of the crime.

SHOWELL -- With prayers and pledges of support, this rural Eastern Shore community rallied yesterday to aid a devastated family that lost two children, ages 3 and 12, in an early-morning house fire that officials said was likely caused by a portable kerosene heater. Five other children and their parents, Jeffrey and Denine DuPont, managed to escape without serious injury the blaze that destroyed their two-story wood-frame house in Showell, about 15 miles from Ocean City. Preliminary tests indicated that a kerosene heater in a first-floor bedroom was filled with the wrong fuel -- gasoline -- which might have increased the danger of the fire-prone heating device, said Worcester County's fire marshal, Jeffrey McMahon.

The houses are owned by Apostolic Community Development Corp., an arm of a prominent east-side church. Since 1999, the city has been battling to force the corporation to renovate the houses or get rid of them. Two months ago, a Baltimore Circuit Court judge found the development corporation and Franklin C. Showell, who leads First Apostolic Institutional Faith Church, guilty of civil contempt for not abiding by a February 2003 consent decree that required the properties to be fixed up or sold.

WASHINGTON - How did a routine stop at an awards reception on Capitol Hill turn into a bizarre coronation ceremony for a billionaire self-proclaimed messiah? Two Maryland congressmen, facing questions about why they attended the event with several other lawmakers, say they have no idea. They never expected to see the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the publisher of The Washington Times and performer of mass weddings who says he has redeemed Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler. On a busy Tuesday evening in March, say Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a Baltimore Democrat, and Roscoe G. Bartlett, a Western Maryland Republican, they did not set out to attend what Moon's Unification Church calls the crowning of "the King and Queen of the Second and Third Israel."
