Proper 8

Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the
foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself
being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.

General Convention Commences:
Opening Remarks by Presiding Bishop
Jefferst Schori at GC2012
The 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church is taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah through July 3.  The Episcopal Church's General Convention is held every three years, and is the bicameral governing body of the Church. It comprises the House of Bishops, with upwards of 200 active and retired bishops, and the House of Deputies, with clergy and lay deputies elected from the 108 dioceses and three regional areas of the Church, at more than 800 members.

In her opening remarks on Wednesday, June 24, 2015, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said, "This body is meant to be sacrament of God, an outward demonstration of the life and hope within us."  READ MORE 

Please keep Bishop Fitzpatrick, the Hawai'i delegation and all those in attendance in your prayers. Also in attendance is our Province VIII youth representative, Sonja Barba, of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Honolulu.  

To stay informed and view videos and a live stream of the General Convention, go to the Media hub HERE.  Daily posts will also be shared on the Diocese of Hawai'i's Facebook page, and a follow-up story in the next August issue of the E-Chronicle.
St. Peter's Sonja Barba Addresses the House of Bishops at General Convention
The following photo and comments are from Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick at the General Meeting of Convention in Salt Lake City, UT, on Wednesday, June 25, 2015:

Sonja Barba from The Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i addressed the House of Bishops on behalf of the "The Official Youth Presence at General Convention." She did a great job! I was so proud to be her Bishop -- just ask Bishop Carol J. Gallagher (who was particularly delighted in the call for more women in the House of Bishops).
The following press release was submitted by St. Augustineʻs Episcopal Church on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi:

The Rev. Diana Akiyama Appointed Vicar 
at St. Augustineʻs

The Rev. Diana Akiyama has been appointed by Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick of the Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i to be the new priest and Vicar at St. Augustine's beginning in July 1, 2015.


Diana Akiyama was born and raised in her father's hometown, Hood River, OR. Her parents were an inter-racial couple at a time when there was considerable hostility toward Japanese Americans and children from inter-racial marriages. Seeking a safe hometown for their young family, they chose to raise their four daughters in Hood River because it had a large close-knit Japanese-American community. There they could raise the girls in a community that would accept and support them.


She attended the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA, for her freshman year before transferring to the University of Oregon where she earned a bachelors of science degree. Diana worked for several years as a counselor in the drug/alcohol rehabilitation field before entering seminary. She attended The Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, CA, and earned an M.Div. After graduating and being ordained to the transitional Diaconate at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Hood River, OR, she was hired by the Dean of the Chapel at Stanford University. One year later, she was ordained to the priesthood and became the first Japanese-American woman priest in the Episcopal Church. She worked as Associate Dean and then Acting Dean of the Chapel at Stanford University. 


Diana met and married her husband, Michael Jackson, who was then the Associate Dean of Students. During her time at Stanford, she served on two national committees of the Episcopal Church USA: The committee on the status of women, and the committee on racism. She was the co-founder of The Sansei Legacy Project which focused on supporting sansei struggling with racial identity because of the emotional trauma experienced by their Nisei parents in relocation camps during WWII.


In 1995, her husband, Michael, was hired by the University of Southern California as the Vice President of Student Affairs. Diana took this opportunity to earn a Ph.D. in Religion and Social Ethics at USC. After receiving her Ph.D., she was hired at Occidental College as dean of religious and spiritual life; in that capacity she was the principal investigator of a five-year, 2 million dollar grant from the Lilly Endowment. The objective of the grant was to encourage undergraduate students to consider ordained ministry as a vocation. She was also an assistant professor in American Studies. After completing the grant, she left Occidental College and began a private practice in spiritual direction.


In 2013, Diana and Michael left USC and Los Angeles and settled into their home in Kohala Estates on Hawai'i Island. They had purchased their home seven years earlier with the hopes of eventually living here full-time. The Rev. Akiyama is serving as Vicar-in-Charge at St. Columba's Episcopal Church in Pa'auilo from January through June 2015. Prior to that, she served as supply priest at St. James' Episcopal Church and St. Augustine's Episcopal Church. She led the popular St. James' Lenten series this year.


Throughout her ministry she has focused on social equality and the role of spiritual formation in overcoming prejudice. She enjoys teaching and is currently an instructor of Theology at the Diocesan Theology School, Waiolaihui'ia, on O'ahu, where classes take place one weekend a month.


When asked why, after a long career in higher-education, she wanted to serve a congregation, Diana said, "I have learned a great deal from teaching and counseling college students and wouldn't change anything I've done. But I realized that I missed being able to preach and teach the Christian message of hope and transformation in a community that is alive with faith. I think the human story is about coming full circle-coming home. Not necessarily the actual home of our childhoods, but home where one's heart leaps with joy and sighs with peace. Someone once said, ʻHome is where the heart is,ʻ so the Big Island is home for me and returning to congregational life is home too."

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

A celebration of Rev. Dianaʻs ministry at St. Columbaʻs will be taking place on Sunday, June 28, after the 9:30 AM service, with a potluck gathering to thank her and wish her well in her new ministry with St. Augustineʻs.

All Saints' Launches Laundry Love Kaua'i 

On Wednesday, June 17, 2015, members of All Saints' Episcopal Church in Kapa'a launched their newest outreach ministry, Laundry Love Kauai, offering free laundry services to patrons at a local laundromat. The "soft launch" was well received, and word is rapidly spreading around the island.  

Laundry Love, a nationwide movement that began in California over twelve years ago, now cares for tens of thousands of people each month. On the national website, their mission states: Laundry Love is a neighboring movement that partners with individuals, groups and laundromats to care for the poor, vulnerable and marginalized throughout the U.S.
Fr. Ryan Newman, Rector of All Saints', connected with one of the organizations in California to bring the successful program to Kaua'i, and St. Michael's and All Angels in Lihue is interested in starting up a program in their neighborhood as well.  On Oʻahu, a group of eight churches recently received approval for a generous Diocesan grant to launch their Laundry Aloha program, so there may be a laundry program in your neighborhood very soon!

All Saints' offers Laundry Love Kauai every first and third Wednesday of the month, from 5:30 - 8:30 PM at the Kapaa Laundromat. For more information, visit their website HERE.

Presiding Bishop on Supreme Court's Ruling for Marriage Equality
Jefferts Schori

[June 26, 2015 - Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued this statement following today's Supreme Court ruling:


Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.  [1Corinthians 13:4-8]


I rejoice that the Supreme Court has opened the way for the love of two people to be recognized by all the states of this Union, and that the Court has recognized that it is this enduring, humble love that extends beyond the grave that is to be treasured by society wherever it exists.  Our society will be enriched by the public recognition of such enduring faithful love in families headed by two men or two women as well as by a woman and a man.  The children of this land will be stronger when they grow up in families that cannot be unmade by prejudice or discrimination.  May love endure and flourish wherever it is to be found.


The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori
Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church

Peace and Justice in the Holy Land High on Convention's Agenda

[Episcopal News Service] Peace, justice and security in the Holy Land are the focus of seven proposed resolutions to be considered by the Episcopal Church's General Convention, ranging from calls for deeper investment in Middle East partnerships to placing economic pressure through boycotts against, and divestment from, companies and corporations engaged in certain business related to the State of Israel.


The Episcopal Church's interreligious relations and its partnerships with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and its social service institutions have long been a major factor when taking policy decisions on peacemaking in the Middle East.


These considerations led to the 2012 General Convention passage of Resolution B019, which affirms positive investment "as a necessary means to create a sound economy and a sustainable infrastructure" in the Palestinian Territories. READ MORE


ERD Partners with Texas Dioceses on Flood Response
ERD logo

 Episcopal Relief & Development is partnering with the Episcopal dioceses of Texas and West Texas in response to severe flooding caused by weeks of heavy rain across the region. Church teams in both dioceses are providing pastoral care and conducting needs assessments in areas where people lost homes and belongings to the floods, and church facilities are acting as ministry bases for outreach efforts. Episcopal Relief & Development support will assist affected households with gas, groceries and repair supplies, as well as storage for salvaged belongings and temporary housing for evacuees.


"The dioceses of Texas and West Texas were able to convene teams quickly to identify community needs and see how churches can be of unique help," said Abagail Nelson, Episcopal Relief & Development's Senior Vice President for Programs. "Right now, response planning is focused on low-income households that are uninsured or underinsured, as well as people with disabilities who might need extra assistance as they recover from the storm. Church networks help ensure that vulnerable neighbors are included and cared for."  READ MORE


Toolkit Prepared by Status of  Women Committee

[June 19, 2015] The Executive Council Committee on the Status of Women has prepared a search toolkit called Cast Wide the Net with resources available HERE.


Designed to provide resources for ordained women, search committees, and others, Cast Wide the Net was a result of actions taken at the 2012 General Convention.


Each section offers comprehensive information and links in such areas as: Why Gender Still Matters; Bishops and Transition Ministers; Ordained Women; Women and the Episcopate; Women in Transition or Search Processes; Women's Leadership; Search and Transition Committees.


"The search toolkit contains an initial set of resources, with more yet to be posted," noted the Rev. Dr. Paula Nesbitt of the Diocese of California, chair of the Executive Council Committee on the Status of Women. "The search toolkit will continue to expand as more resources are added."


As noted in the search toolkit: These toolkit resources may help bring awareness to some of the priorities and practices by which gender can affect expectations and outcomes, with a result of helping lessen the gender disparities and increasing a gender inclusive ethos for women's leadership in the church.

Godly Play at Camp Mokule'ia 
Core Training in October
By Jenny Wallace
Godly Play logo
I love the stories. Godly Play is a way of telling stories of our faith so beautifully that we can wonder and reflect on them. We may discover new insight into the story and in ourselves. 

On June 26-28, come to Camp Mokule'ia for an amazing weekend of activity with Godly Play.  Godly Play storytellers are invited to come, listen to, and learn stories together, and then we will tell them to the larger community. 

Jill Haworth had a great idea for a set of stories. "Let's work on the desert stories and then tell them on the beach. We can go from Ur to Canaan to Egypt and back again."

I will also be telling the saint story for Fr. Damien to Hui Pu and other folks - world premier.  So sign up and bring your family and friends. There will be lots of time to rest, relax and renew, and time to gather with the stories and the Godly Play community.  Call (808) 637-6241 to sign up.

Mark your calendars!
Then on October 10 - 12, there will be a Godly Play Core Training at Epiphany Episcopal Church in Honolulu.  This training is sponsored by the Diocese and is open to everyone.  Stay tuned for details!
