8 June 2014
The Day of Pentecost

Sunday, June 8, 2014  

The Day of Pentecost is the culmination of the Great Fifty Days of Easter.  Pentecost celebrates God's gift of the Spirit, which empowers all of the Church in ministry.  Today is the day in which all of God's people are invited to open their hearts and minds to the life-giving Spirit, which comes upon us as the Church.  The Bishop will be celebrant at all three morning services. Holy Baptism will be celebrated at the 8 am service.  And don't forget to wear red, the color of the Day! 

Ministry Mahalo Breakfast 

Saturday, June 28 9-10:30 am
Davies Hall 

 

For all those that offer themselves in ministry here at the Cathedral, we want to celebrate and give thanks - together!  Truly, those who serve in your various ministries, already know intrinsically the privilege of serving God and one another, yet the Dean and staff would also like to tangibly thank you for all you do! 

 

In unity, come and celebrate our various ministries together with a breakfast on Saturday morning, June 28th, in Davies Hall from 9:00-10:30 am.  As Jesus demonstrated service to others in his final teaching act of washing his disciples' feet, allow your Cathedral staff to serve you breakfast and offer you our Mahalo for enabling our Cathedral 'Ohana to truly function as a witness to God's love in the world.

 

Some of you may think your particular ministry here is small - but together - our energies, our prayers, make a whole that is larger than the sum of its parts.  Depending upon our gifts, each of us serve in such different ways.  It's interesting to consider the vast difference in our various ministries, and to have opportunities such as this, to come together and see how we are mutually supportive. For example our ministries range from Office Volunteers to Treasurer; from Choir to Altar Guild; from recycling bulletins to watering the garden; from pastoral care to communications; from Outreach to Hospitality; from counting money to yoga instruction; from Acolyte to Chapter Member; from teaching to marching for justice -- all of us making up the Body of Christ here at St. Andrew!

 

So please come and have fun with your fellow ministers!  For headcount purposes, either let your committee chairperson know, or email Mother Susan at susan.sowers@thecathedralofstandrew.org with your name and the number of who's coming, by June 20th. 

 

Know that without your many ministries (so many more than can be listed here) the Cathedral could not function.  With gratitude for the ability to Live Aloha and to serve others - let's share breakfast together!  This time - allow us to serve you

 

Mahalo Nui Loa!

Susan...+

Seventh Anniversary Recital 

Friday, June 6, 2014, 12:15 pm

St. Andrew's Cathedral

John Renke, organist

 

Music of Nikolaus Bruhns, Edward Elgar, and CÚsar Franck

Since Noontime Concerts was begun in 2007, downtown regulars and thousands of people from around the world have enjoyed these weekly, half-hour recitals in the magnificent acoustics of Saint Andrew's Cathedral.  In addition to the very popular organ recitals on Hawaii's largest pipe organ, local and visiting choral and chamber music ensembles have performed, as well as a host of instrumental and vocal recitalists

 

On Friday, June 6, organist John Renke will perform the same recital that opened the Noontime Concerts series seven years ago, with music of Nikolaus Bruhns, Edward Elgar, and CÚsar Franck. These three works highlight the versatility of the Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, custom-built for in Boston, Massachusetts for St. Andrew's Cathedral in 1960.

 

The recital is at 12.15 pm.  People are welcome to bring lunch.  Admission and parking are free - although donations are always welcome!

Dean's Forum - Reconciliation and the Healing of Memory

Rev. Fr. Michael Lapsley, S.S.M., guest presenter

Sunday, June 8, 2014: 9:20 - 10:10 am

Von Holt Room

 

South African Anglican Priest, social justice activist, and author The Rev. Fr. Michael Lapsley, SSM (Society of the Sacred Mission).

 

Fr. Michael Lapsley is an Anglican priest who serves as the director of the Institute for the Healing of Memories based in Cape Town, South Africa. Born in New Zealand, he joined the Anglican Society of the Sacred Mission (S.S.M.) in Australia, and moved to South Africa in 1973. While attending university in Durban in the mid-1970s, he served as the National Chaplain of Anglican Students, and then due to his political and social organizing efforts he was expelled from the country by the apartheid government.

 

Over the next quarter-century, Michael lived in exile in Lesotho, the United Kingdom, and Zimbabwe. Early in that period he became a member of the African National Congress of South Africa (ANC), which was then conducting an underground guerrilla struggle against apartheid.  For many years Michael also functioned as a chaplain of the ANC. From 1987-1990 Michael worked as a theological consultant and coordinated an ecumenical program of popular education about apartheid and destabilization under the auspices of the Lutheran World Federation.

 

In April 1990 in Harare, Zimbabwe, Michael was sent a letter bomb by the South African government.  In the explosion he lost both his hands, an eye, and his eardrums were shattered, among other injuries. After several months of recovery in various hospitals in Zimbabwe and Australia, in December 1990 Michael undertook an extensive international speaking tour reflecting on his own bombing and survival and the current situation in southern Africa.

 

He finally repatriated to South Africa in 1992, and the following year became one of the first two employees of the Trauma Centre for the Victims of Violence and Torture in Cape Town, a post he held until the end of July 1998. The following month he helped launch the Institute for Healing of Memories.

 

Michael continues to work to develop a model that will assist faith communities in the process of healing the psychological, emotional and spiritual wounds of violence. His ministry in South Africa addresses the ongoing trauma from the apartheid period, and he also travels the world to work with communities seeking to emerge from violence and injustice to nonviolence and just relationships. His writings address these experiences around the globe.

Sunday Spiritual Formation Hour for the Summer

Sundays, 9:20-10:10 am

Von Holt Room

 

Our union with God is a matter of body, mind and spirit.

By availing yourself to the Cathedral's opportunities of Christian Education, we engage our minds in a kind of prayer.  To know the "Holy Other" as the One who also "dwells within," requires us to participate in a relationship that allows us to learn more about God (and ourselves).

 

Here's what's available in near term.  Which opportunities will you come to?

 

Time and place: Sunday's 9:20-10:10 am, between the Services, Von Holt Room

 

June 1:  Last gathering in the series of forums hosted by the Rev Neal MacPherson and the Dean On Being the Church after Christendom.

 

June 8 : On Pentecost, we will host a special speaker from South Africa!  Father Michael Lapsley, the White Anglican priest who took a stand against Apartheid and bears the scars and the lessons of reconciliation.  Not to be missed!

 

June 15- July 13th: A 5-part DVD series by best-selling author, Kathleen Norris called "Embracing a life of Meaning."  Each class will include a 10-15 minute video and then our discussion.  We have purchased the workbooks for you already.

 

June 15th: Belief Matters. Why does belief matter? To what do we give our hearts? What is the core message of what we believe-creeds or commitment?

 

June 22nd: The Bible Matters. The Bible is our collective story. How is that story reflected in our daily lives? What is it about the Bible that always seems to address our present moment?June 29th: Community Matters: In community, individualism and imperfection meet grace and acceptance. What is our part in the Body of Christ?

 

July 6th: We Matter: What it means to remain in God's image and to counter our selfishness by embracing the world and its needs?

 

July 13th: Place Matters: In what ways is faith set within the physical space of home, church, land and people? 

 

July 20th - August 10th: A four-part DVD series on Dietrich Bonhoeffer, by New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas.

In these small group sessions,  we will explore the major themes of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's writing and speaking, and how he not only helped transform an entire faith community in Germany during World War II, but how his beliefs continue to impact the Christian witness throughout the world today.  This series promises to challenge and grow our faith!
