Feast of the Presentation of
Our Lord in the Temple

Sunday, February 2nd 

 

Reflections from Canon Renke

 

One of the most ancient observances in the Christian calendar, this feast commemorates the day when Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the Temple in Jerusalem to be presented according to Jewish law. The presentation of Christ in the temple forty days after his birth commemorates the entry of the 'true light' into the world, and concludes the celebration of the Christmas Season.

 

Since the feast falls on Sunday this year, we depart from our regular cycle of readings to hear from the prophet Malachi, "...the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple..." and from the Gospel according to Matthew, "It had been revealed to (Simeon) by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Messiah... And when the parents brought in the child Jesus into the temple, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying, "Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."

 

We also mark this day with the solemn blessing of candles and a procession at Evensong.  All are provided with candles that are lit as the ancient canticle of Simeon is sung,

 

            Lord, you now have set your servant free

            to go in peace as you have promised.

            For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior,

            who you have prepared for all the world to see.

 

Candles, representing those to be used in our worship throughout the year, will be blessed and then carried in procession.  You are also encouraged to bring candles from home to be blessed.  The prayers and music for this feast are some of the most beautiful of the year. 

 

This feast has particular meaning for those who "minister in the temple."  Like Simeon and the prophet Anna, those of us who minister as acolytes, ushers, lectors, servers, singers, Altar Guild members, Eucharistic Ministers, and members of the hospitality team, all do our part to reveal this Light to all nations...to all who come to our Cathedral as pilgrims and seekers from around the world. 

 

I hope we can all participate in this rich feast and the Candlemas rites at Evensong.

 

John Renke

Canon for Music

  

Maria wallt zum Heiligtum

und bringt ihr Kindlein dar,

das schaut der greise Simeon,

wie ihm verheißen war.

Da nimmt er Jesum in den Arm

und singt im Geiste froh:

Nun fahr' ich hin mit Freud, dich,

Heiland, sah ich heut,

du Trost von Israel, das Licht der Welt.

Mary went to the temple

and brought her beloved child there,

who was seen by the aged Simeon,

as the prophets had foretold.

Simeon took Jesus in his arms,

and joyfully sang:

Now I go forth with joy,

for today I have seen You,

comfort of Israel, light of the World.

Adult Education at the Dean's Forum 

A Series of Teachings on St. Paul

9:15-10:10 am Sundays in Von Holt Room

 

Please consider joining us between the 8am and 10:30 Services for the next 5 weeks as we consider ways to "Love Paul More!" (until we get to Lent)

Christians have had a love-hate relationship with St. Paul for over 2,000 years now. If you find yourself wrestling with Paul in the Epistle readings - come and join us in the study and discussion! We will look at some of his controversial issues - such as marriage, women, homosexuality, and slavery.

Our first lesson this Sunday (Feb 2nd) will be an introduction of Paul, to include an overview of his letters which were saved and canonized in scripture, how to read a letter written in the style of Paul's day, and some thoughts on how to interpret his teachings for today's use. This next 5 weeks promise to engender great conversation, and like Paul, aim at increasing our love of the Lord. 

 

"He Lei, He Aloha" 

 

Last presentation of "He Lei, He Aloha" coming up on February 13th


Presentations of "He Lei, He Aloha" featuring the legacies of Queen Lili`uokalani have been proceeding from library to library around our island chain.  In September and October "He Lei" was presented in nine public libraries and one church.  After a break for the holidays, a dedicated crew gave presentations at ten libraries around the Big Island and four on Maui.  In these last couple weeks of this series, "He Lei" is being presented on Moloka`i. Lana`i and three libraries on Kaua`i.

"He Lei, He Aloha" will return to O`ahu for a grand finale at the Hawaii State Library (Punchbowl and King Street) on Thursday, February 13th at 6:00 pm.  That will be the last hurrah for this valuable program that enables audience members to experience in the Queen's legacy by singing her songs, reading excerpts from her book and viewing a video about the overthrow.  This participatory experience is powerful and poignant.  If you have not had a chance to catch any of the presentations at other libraries, you want to get in on the last "He Lei, He Aloha" presentation on Thursday, February 13th at the state library.

Climbing Poetree 

Saturday, 8 February 7 pm - 11 pm
Tenney Theatre 

Girlfest Hawaii, Justice & Outreach of St. Andrew's Cathedral, and MamaWisdom1 present  


CLIMBING POETREE
performing a special version of their award-winning multimedia production of
HURRICANE SEASON:

Underground Voices Transforming Unnatural Disaster  

 

On Saturday, February 8th from 7P to 11P at Tenney Theater of St. Andrew's Cathedral (229 Queen Emma Sq. Honolulu, HI), the dynamic, Brooklyn-based female duo CLIMBING POETREE will grace the stage with their award-winning multimedia production of HURRICANE SEASON. Selected for a month-long run at the world renowned National Black Theater in Harlem with sold-out shows, HURRICANE SEASON is a two woman show that interweaves powerful spoken word poetry, stunning visuals, animation, and a sound collage of music and testimonials to bring forth renewed hope in the face of worldwide globalization. HURRICANE SEASON connects the issues that surfaced in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to the "unnatural disasters" that disenfranchised communities are experiencing nationwide and worldwide on a daily basis. HURRICANE SEASON tackles global warming, environmental injustice, policing, prisons, militarization, corporate domination, gentrification, and displacement as they manifest from one gulf to another, with a powerful tale of resistance, resilience, creativity and survival.

Oahu will experience a special version of HURRICANE SEASON entitled: "Underground Voices TRANSFORMING Unnatural Disaster", localizing the general theme of the event by integrating local poets and musical guests to address the cross-pollination of "unnatural disasters" amongst Oahu's Hawaiian and Pacific Islander immigrant communities. Hawaii's Own include: Singer and Cultural Ambassador - PAULA FUGA; Slam Poetry Group - PACIFIC TONGUES (a.k.a. Youth Speaks Hawaii); and DJ/Emcee/Youth Mentor - SEPH1. The evening will also weave in Climbing Poetree's special musical guests, LEAH SONG & BIKO of the Atlanta-based music group RISING APPALACHIA. 

 

Godly Play

The Children's Gathering on the Square
Sundays, 9 am to 10 am
St. Peter's Loft
The program takes place in The Loft at the back of St Peter's Church, from 9 am to 10 am on Sunday mornings. It is appropriate for children who are curious about the bible stories that they hear in church, enrolled in preschool through the 6th grade of school. Older children are welcome to assist as 'helpers.'  


Feb. 2 Parable of the Good Samaritan - Parables are the closest thing we have to the actual words of Jesus. We treat these stories with great respect and wonder. Today we heard the story of the Good Samaritan. Why would a man whose people (the Samaritans) was part of a culture with a great deal of distrust and enmity toward the Jews (who felt the same about the Samaritans) would stop and help (and really care with his time, money and concern) when a priest and Levite (both thought to be devout Jews) crossed to the other side of the road and passed by).  

 

Feb. 9 Story of "St." Valentine - Several times during the church year, the lives of individuals who have served God in a particular way, are celebrated. Some of these individuals lived so long ago that there is almost no tangible evidence of their lives, all that remains is the story. Today we celebrate the life of "St." Valentine who  loved for God. Valentine was executed of February 14, 270. The practice of sending love messages on February 14 originated in part from the story of Valentines' note to the jailer's blind daughter. This day celebrates love and commemorates Valentines life.

 

Chrism Mass and Education Day is open to all Clergy and Lay people.

Saturday, April 5
Chrism Mass
9:00 am - 10:30 am in St. Andrew's Cathedral

The annual Chrism Mass of the Diocese will be held on Saturday, April 5, at 9:00 a.m., at the Cathedral of St. Andrew.  At this service, the Bishop blesses the oils of chrism (for baptism), healing, and the catechumenate, and the clergy take a portion of these oils back to their own churches for use during the coming year.

 

Following the Chrism Mass will be an educational day.  Special Guest speaker is the Rev. Kevin E. Martin, retired Dean of the Cathedral of St. Matthew in Dallas, TX, and current Congregational Development Officer for the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma. Martin is considered one of the foremost experts on congregational development. He is the author of two books, "The Myth of the 200 Barrier" and "5 Keys for Church Leaders", and has written numerous articles on leadership and congregational vitality.

 

Deadline to register is March 27, 2014.
