Proper 27

O God, whose blessed Son came into the world that he might
destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God
and heirs of eternal life: Grant that, having this hope, we may
purify ourselves as he is pure; that, when he comes again
with power and great glory, we may be made like him in his
eternal and glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns with
you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. 

- Book of Common Prayer

November 3, 2014


The 46th annual Meeting of Convention is over! On October 24 & 25, clergy and convention delegates met in Tenney Theatre at The Cathedral of Saint Andrew for the two-day meeting. 

The Convention opened with featured guest speaker The Very Rev. Kevin Martin, an expert in congregational development who has held a number of workshops and presentations in the Diocese over the years. 

Bishop Fitzpatrick's Address opened the second day of the meeting, where he spoke of the challenges, transitions and "new creation" of the Diocese that the theme Scripture refers to. (The Bishop's written report is now available for viewing HERE and also on the Diocesan Convention webpage.) 

Along with the approval of the 2015 Budget and a number of resolutions, special reports were given by the Rev. David Turner from Camp Mokule'ia, Sandy Theunick from The St. Andrew's Schools, and the Rev. Austin Murray on Waiolahui'ia. Keku Akana, President of the highly successful outreach program, A Cup of Cold Water on Maui, stirred up the crowd with his humor, wit and passion, and answered numerous questions about the ministry. Another highlight of the meeting was a presentation by some of the members of the Hawai'i youth delegation that attended the Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) in Philadelphia this past summer. Youth representatives from O'ahu, Kaua'i, Maui and the Big Island shared their heartfelt messages that touched all in attendance. 

A Special Edition E-Chronicle will be coming out shortly with complete coverage of the meeting and related activities. In the meantime, the Convention Journal, Bishop's Address and Report, approved Budget and a photo slideshow are available for viewing on the convention webpage HERE.

The EYE youth video is now available for viewing on Vimeo or the diocesan website.

The theme for the meeting was taken from 2 Corinthians 5:17:  
So then, if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. The old things have gone away and look, new things have arrived!

David Gierlach of St. Elizabeth's, "whether we cannot get into housing, or as we watch our kids leave because they can't afford a place, or as rising values crush our retirees who are land rich and cash poor, or as we just take a walk and witness our island starting to resemble some of the poorest nations in the world..."

Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick encourages all congregations on O'ahu and Maui (where FACE is established) to be involved with this organization.

What's Happening in The Episcopal Church? 

Announcements from around The Episcopal Church & beyond 

A Pastoral Message on Climate Change
The following Pastoral Message on Climate Change has been issued by Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori with the heads for the Anglican Church of Canada, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.

[September 19, 2014] We are united as Christian leaders in our concern for the well-being of our neighbors and of God's good creation that provides life and livelihood for all God's creatures. Daily we see and hear the evidence of a rapidly changing climate. Glaciers are disappearing, the polar ice cap is melting, and sea levels are rising. Incidents of pollution created dead zones in seas and the ocean and toxic algae growth in water supplies are occurring with greater frequency. Most disturbingly, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is rising at an unprecedented rate. At the same time we also witness in too many instances how the earth's natural beauty, a sign of God's wonderful creativity, has been defiled by pollutants and waste. 


Many have reacted to these changes with grief and anger. In their outrage some have understandably focused on the neglect and carelessness, both in private industry and in government regulation, that have contributed to these changes. However, an honest accounting requires a recognition that we all participate both as consumers and investors in economies that make intensive and insistent demands for energy. In addition, as citizens we have chosen to support or acquiesce in policies that shift the burdens of climate change to communities that are most vulnerable to its effects. People who are already challenged by poverty and by dislocation resulting from civil war or famine have limited resources for adapting to climate change's effects. READ MORE


Episcopal Church Executive Council:
Opening Remarks from the Presiding Bishop
[October 24, 2014]  Know the audience you are writing to. What are they hoping to hear from you? What would they find useful or informative?It is very good to see you all again. It's been a long time since June. I give thanks for the labors of this Council, and for its growth in capacity in this triennium. We are engaging the mission and ministry of this Church in larger and more strategic ways than we have in recent years. I continue to believe that the primary mission of this body is those larger and strategic questions, and I firmly hope the Convention will help us to clarify that role.

The Episcopal Church has crossed a threshold into new ways of being in the 21st century and in our varied contexts. I see signs of growth and missional investment and solidarity at every turn. I'll give you some examples. In Western Kansas, two women in ranch families - an Episcopalian and a Wesleyan - have started a camp for inner city kids, growing out of their discernment of the needs of kids who've never seen a cow, who don't have terribly stable family lives, have never had chores to do, and need to know what it is to be loved unconditionally in a Christian setting. It's called Camp Runamuck, and the motto is 'don't run amok, run to Him.'[1] READ MORE

Task Force on Study of Marriage

The Episcopal Church Task Force on the Study of Marriage has released Dearly Beloved, resources for conversation and discussion. The following is a report From the Task Force on the Study of Marriage.


Dearly Beloved: A resource for study and discussion about marriage


We are pleased to offer to The Episcopal Church a resource for study and discussion about marriage. This topic is of historic and timeless significance for the church; practices of marriage are undergoing social change in our own day; and our church, acting through resolution A050 at General Convention in 2012, asked that we develop tools for discussion on this subject.


We enter this conversation - as we always do when discerning our way forward - by considering those three sources of Anglican authority on the subject: scripture, tradition (including theology, liturgy, canon law, and history), and reason (including our human experience).

We are 12 appointees: bishops, theologians, educators, and pastors. As the Task Force that was charged with providing resources for this reflection, we have deeply explored marriage through the lenses of scripture, tradition, and reason. We continue to study and we continue to consult as Resolution 2012-A050 directs.  READ MORE
