Second Sunday in Lent
O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious
to all who have gone astray from your ways, and bring them
again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and
hold fast the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ
your Son; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns,
one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

The following is a message from the Bishop originally released on Wednesday March 1, 2017:

Transition in the Office of the Bishop
As we begin the season of Lent, I need to announce a transition in the Office of the Bishop. I received the following message from Charmaine Ito  (and I share it with her permission):
"After much contemplation and prayer, I have accepted the newly created position of office manager with Palama Holdings LLC, founder of H&W Foodservice and prior owner of May's Hawaii.  Palama Holdings is a company of over 300 employees and I am challenged to apply what I have learned while with the Episcopal Diocese these past few years.  It is a new chapter in my life and I am excited for the future, but at the same time, sad to leave the incredible staff and volunteers of the diocese that I have had the pleasure of working with.   My last day with the Office of the Bishop will be Friday, March 10, 2017.
I have learned a lot about the Episcopal Church in the past four years and thank you for the experience, support, and knowledge gained.
Live a heart of gratitude and appreciate all that has been given. Mahalo plenty!"
Sometimes employees leave the office as they retire and others as they leave the Islands.  Departures of cared for friends and colleagues always bring sadness.  When a good and faithful Church employee takes the skills learned and insights acquired through experience into the secular world with greater responsibilities and opportunities, it also comes with certain sense of pride.  Charmaine has been an invaluable member of the staff of the Bishop and, before that, in the Cathedral's office.  I am, therefore, saddened that we are losing a great colleague and a wonderful person from the office, but I am also thankful that Charmaine is moving to such an opportunity. 
Charmaine, we are proud of you and grateful for the time you have been with us on the staff of the Episcopal Church.  God bless you!
Yours faithfully,  
The Right Reverend Robert L. Fitzpatrick
Bishop Diocesan 
The Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i
The following is an e-mail from the Bishop to the Diocese originally released on Friday, March 3, 2017:

Threat Against the Pre-school of Temple Emanu-El
As many of you have heard, the Pre-school of Temple Emanu-El (2550 Pali Highway, Honolulu) received a threatening phone call.  I have sent the following message to that congregation on behalf of the Diocese:
I was deeply shocked and saddened by the news of the threat made against the Temple Pre-school.
Please know that the Episcopal Church in Hawaiʻi stands with you in the face of such hate and misplaced anger. 
Today my morning prayers were enlivened by a verse from Psalm 37 as I thought of your congregation: "Observe those who have integrity and watch those whose heart is right because the future belongs to persons of peace."
In a time when hate is given license and words of division have become the new norm, those of us who carry the seal of Jesus Christ are called to be the heralds of peace and the stewards of justice.  Such threatening and mindless hate is unacceptable against any person for every human being is made in the very image of God.  As we are reminded in the Letter of James (3:17-18): "What of the wisdom from above? First, it is pure, and then peaceful, gentle, obedient, filled with mercy and good actions, fair, and genuine. Those who make peace sow the seeds of justice by their peaceful acts."
Please keep the people of Temple Emanu-El and all those who have been targets of hate in your prayers.
Yours faithfully,
The Right Reverend Robert L. Fitzpatrick
Bishop Diocesan 
The Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i

EYE17 Hawai`i Youth Delegation Gearing Up for Oklahoma
The Diocese of Hawai'i will be sending a total of 14 high school youth to the Episcopal Church's triennial Episcopal Youth Event taking place in Oklahoma this summer.  

A diverse group of youth from O`ahu, Kaua`i and Maui will be making the trek to the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK, in July, and will be staying on for a few more days to do mission in the Oklahoma City area.

Although the Diocese will be paying a portion of the expenses, the bulk of the cost for airfare, lodging and ground transportation must be covered by individuals and their churches. Stay tuned for information on upcoming fund raisers to help support our youth.  They are:

Raiden Kurisu, Reis Nakamura, Braden Tabura, Mason Tabura, Eryn Yamashiro and Grace Yatsko from All Saints'; ShandiMarie Agpoon, Angela Cainguitan and Kimberly Taroma from Good Shepherd; P.K. Miecho, K O Muludy, Nathan Neeto, Sumion Singeichy, and Lee Tokoma`ata from St. Elizabeth's.  Adult chaperones are Viliami Lino, Shana Ikeda and Sybil Nishioka.

Online Lenten Self-Study Offering:
Reflections on Compassion
By Melvia Kawashima
Welcome to Lent - when we go inward into our spiritual selves to learn, question, ponder some big eternal questions:  Who am I?  What do I need to do with my life? What does God want me to do?

Led by Fr. Malcolm Chun, The Cathedral of St. Andrew is offering a Lenten self-study using Karen Armstrong's best seller,  12 Steps to a Compassionate Life as a resource and personal reading reference. We will read and ponder questions based on her 12 steps over the five Sundays in Lent, on our own time.

For more information and to read Fr. Chun's introduction to this offering, click HERE.

Episcopal, Lutheran Leaders in the U.S. and Canada Issue Ash Wednesday Message on Refugees
[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry joined March 1 with Anglican and Lutheran leaders in North America in issuing an Ash Wednesday message titled "Remember the Refugees and Migrants."

Curry joined Anglican Church of Canada Primate Fred Hiltz, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton and Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada National Bishop  Susan C. Johnson, in sending the message: 

"On this day many people will participate in a liturgy including the Imposition of Ashes.  Some presiders blot these ashes upon our foreheads and we are reminded that we are but dust and to dust shall we return.  Others trace them upon our forehead in the sign of the cross, a reminder of the place to where the Lenten journey takes us.  Even at the outset of this holy season we are reminded that while for some the cross is a stumbling block and for others mere foolishness, it is for those who are being called, the power of God and the wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:23).

Curry, Jennings Take Lead in Supreme Court Brief on Transgender-Bathroom Policy

[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings are the lead signers on  an amicus brief filed March 2 by 1,800 clergy and religious leaders in a U.S. Supreme Court case involving transgender-bathroom use policies.

The "friend of the court" brief comes in the case of  G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board, which the American Civil Liberties Union and its Virginia chapter filed on behalf of Gavin Grimm and his mother, Deirdre Grimm, in June 2015.

The signers urge the high court to see that the ability to live in a country that guarantees transgender equality is a religious freedom issue. They said their faith communities have approached issues related to gender identity in different ways, but are "united in believing that the fundamental human dignity shared by all persons requires treating transgender students like Respondent Gavin Grimm in a manner consistent with their gender identity." 

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, shown here at the Executive Council's October 2016 meeting, say they anchored their decision to be the lead signers on a U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief in the theological understanding that all people are created in the image of God and thus entitled to equal protection under the law.

Margareth Crosnier de Bellaistre, Episcopal Church Director of Investment Management and Banking, explained that the scholarship amounts vary according to the availability of payouts from the funds.  The maximum is $10,000.

The lists of trust funds and scholarships as well as application and key information can be found HERE.

Coming in May
Stewardship University: Stewardship & Beyond

This year's annual Stewardship University will take place on Friday May 5 (clergy only) and Saturday, May 6 (clergy and lay), at the Parish of St. Clement's Parish Hall in Honolulu. Registration begins at 9:30 AM and the class ends at 4:00 PM on both days.

This year's theme is "How Clergy and Lay Leaders Can Create Stronger Congregations." Over the past few decades, the culture in which we live has become increasingly indifferent to religious expression. Religious leaders who garner public attention often preach a gospel of exclusion, rather than all souls being God's children.  The result is that ministry in any form, for clergy and lay leaders alike, is exponentially more difficult than in years past.

This year's Stewardship University will be led by Michael Durall, who has authored numerous books on congregational organization, development and stewardship. He co-authored Making the Pledge Drive Obsolete with the Rev. Cn. Timothy Dombek, who led our previous Stewardship University events. His most recent book is Don't Wait Until the Pastor Leaves: Planning for Ministerial Transition Helps Ensure that One Successful Minister Follows Another.

Clergy and lay leaders are encouraged to sign up as teams to strengthen their stewardship programs. Participants will gain a common understanding of stewardship possibilities and reap the benefits all year long!

This is a day for scripture-led reflection, prayer, and guidance for spiritual renewal. Finding the time to pray is hard in today's busy world.
