For delegations that want an opportunity to discuss these questions prior to Annual Meeting, St. Peter's has made space available in its Parish Hall before Education Day begins.

She works closely with the Presiding Bishop and other church leaders for wholeness, reconciliation and justice in the Episcopal Church and the world.

Presiding Bishop's Opening Remarks at Episcopal Church Executive Council Meeting
[October 22, 2016] The following are the October 20 opening remarks of Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry as delivered at the Episcopal Church Executive Council 
meeting held October 20-22 in New Brunswick, NJ:

Allow me to talk about the vision of the Jesus Movement on the practical  churchwide level and what that really begins to look like and how embracing that has obvious implications for budget and structure and engagement.

This is the result of work by the officers and canons who have been working together, and by the way, we meet together monthly to think on a broader strategic level, and it's one way to unite or bring together every aspect of the DFMS (Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society).  We just started that and it really does seem to be an effective way to make sure that we're all in touch with each other on that broader level. That decision was an outgrowth of the work that we did with the Human Synergistics folk that led to this diagram. The intent here was to really flesh out what does it mean to be a church that embodies the Way of Jesus of Nazareth in our common life together as a whole church. It's really clear that the actual life of the church gets lived in our congregations, our lay and clergy people, it is lived as people of God as Verna Dozier used to say, "The real action happens when the dismissal get said, 'Go into the world'", that's when the action happens.

And so how do we on a churchwide level actually enable that to happen throughout the entire church?  And this is one way to begin to look at that.  Let me just walk you through.  We looked at the Jesus Movement, began to think "OK, now let's put some more language on that so that it just doesn't become a rhetorical frame, so that it begins to take on life."  It took us a while to get there but then we finally realized that what we're talking about is a community of people who are committed by their baptism, as baptized disciples of Jesus Christ, to live the way of Jesus.

Pulama 2016 Feast Day:
Thoughts & Reflections on Our Holy Sovereigns
King Kamehameha IV & Queen Emma
As November approaches, churches around the Diocese will be planning special services for the Feast of the Holy Sovereigns, honoring King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma. The feast day, which will be observed on November 20 this year, celebrates the King and Queen who brought the Anglican Church to Hawai'i, and left an enduring legacy of community service that continues to lift the human spirit, mind and body. 

The Rev. Moki Hino and Dixie Kaetsu from Holy Apostles in Hilo, produced a wonderful film entitled  Pulama, in which people from around the Diocese shared personal thoughts about the royal couple and the impact they had and continue to have throughout the islands. Hino and Kaetsu traveled to each of the main islands to conduct the interviews, which were then beautifully interwoven with prayer and reflections. The video is created for all to view and share as we pay homage to our King and Queen next month. 

Click on the links below to view a short trailer, and also the full-version which runs about 25 minutes. The video will also be posted on the diocesan website's homepage through November.
