The First Sunday After Christmas Day
Almighty God, you have poured upon us the new light of
your incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our
hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our
Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

The Bishop's New Year's Message:
The Bishop's Reading List for 2017
As we begin 2017, I invite all Episcopalians in the Diocese of Hawaiʻi to read the following books over the course of the year.  I think these books could best be read in congregational study groups.  These books are not long, but I hope we can read them together in 2017.   As you will see, my suggestions are to help focus, as a Diocese and a people of God, on the essentials in 2017: Faith, Justice, Prayer and Compassion.   

Bishop Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury (2002-2012) and currently Master of Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, offers two accessible introductions to the Christian faith.  These books have pastoral reflections followed by questions (for personal reflection or group discussions).  These books taken together could be a good basis for preparing candidates for Baptism or Confirmation, but long-time members of the Church have much to gain from them as well.  I hope both of these books are read in 2017.
  • Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer by Rowan Williams (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2014), 84 pages.
  • Being Disciples: Essentials of the Christian Life by Rowan Williams (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2016), 88 pages.
Some will remember that Tex Sample was the keynote speaker during one of our diocesan education weekends at Turtle Bay.  Ordained in the United Methodist Church, he is the Robert B. and Kathleen Rogers Professor Emeritus of Church and Society at the St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri. Tex is a story-teller and theologian with a passionate commitment to justice.  This reflection on justice, community organizing and faith is timely.  I hope it is read by many in our churches.
  • A Christian Justice for the Common Good by Tex Sample (Abingdon Press, 2016), 111 pages.
Throughout Advent, I preached and taught about the use of the Examen Prayer.  St. Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556) developed this simple form of prayer to nurture a reflective habit of mind that is constantly attuned to God's presence.  A Simple Life-Giving Prayer is a personal reflection on and witness to the Examen Prayer by a lay person.  Reimagining the Ignatian Examen offers variations on this model of prayer to keep it fresh and focused (there is an app available to support the exercises in this book - see http://www.ignatianspirituality.com/23542/reimagining-examen-app). Certainly, Manney's book is a good beginning.
  • A Simple Life-Giving Prayer: Discovering the Power of St. Ignatius's Examen by Jim Manney (Loyola Press, 2011), 85 pages.
  • Reimagining the Ignatian Examen by Mark E. Thibodeaux (Loyola Press, 2015), 85 pages.
Lastly, I am increasingly convinced that compassion is the virtue that is at the heart of the Christian life.  It is the force that turns prayer to action.  I suggest two books on compassion to help shape our common life.  Compassion was originally written in the early 1980s by three Roman Catholic priests.  McNeill and Morrison revised it after Nouwen's death to make it more gender-sensitive and to again share a needed voice.  Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life was written from the broader perspective of listening to voices from various religions to expand a person's capacity for compassion.  If read in a congregation's study group, please start with Compassion.  
  • Compassion: A Reflection on the Christian Life by Henri J.M. Nouwen, Donald P. McNeill and Douglas A. Morrison (Doubleday, 2005), 137 pages. 
  • Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong (Anchor Books, 2010), 193 pages.
I offer these suggestions with my prayer for the Diocese of Hawaiʻi in 2017:
God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose years never fail and whose mercies are new each returning day: let the radiance of your Spirit renew our lives, warming our hearts and giving light to our minds; that we may pass the coming year in joyful obedience and firm faith; through him who is the beginning and the end, your Son, Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.
[This prayer is from seasonal material produced by the Church of England (https://www.churchofengland.org/media/41153/tandschristmas.pdf)]

Your servant in Christ Jesus,


The Right Rev. Robert Fitzpatrick
Bishop Diocesan
The Episcopal Diocese of Hawai'i
Ask the Bishop

Every now and then I get a question from someone (usually by e-mail or note) in the pew about a change in worship practice in their local church or something said by "someone."  I want to share a couple of recent questions with my replies:
"Our priest has started to make a big deal about taking Communion after everyone else.  I don't remember that ever being something talked about before.  Has there been a change and I missed it?  Why is it suddenly a big deal?"
I have had a couple of clergy tell me that it is now their practice to do so.  I still receive the Sacrament immediately following the consecration.  Why?  Well, first that is what the rubrics instruct me to do.  The rubrics are the small italicized directions in the Book of Common Prayer that are the basic required rules that guide our worship.  By our ordination promises, the rubrics have the same force of authority for ordained Episcopal ministers as the canons (laws) of the Church.  The rubric's answer to this question is straightforward: "The ministers receive the Sacrament in both kinds, and then immediately deliver it to the people" (BCP, page 365).   READ MORE

Announcements from around The Episcopal Church & beyond 

Jesus Movement Revivals Set for 2017-2018
[December 19, 2016] The Episcopal Church is working with diocesan teams to organize a series of Episcopal Revivals in 2017 and 2018, six major events that promise to stir and renew hearts for Jesus, to equip Episcopalians as evangelists, and to welcome people who aren't part of a church to join the Jesus Movement.

"I love the surprised response when people hear we're organizing Episcopal Revivals," said the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, the Presiding Bishop's Canon for Evangelism, Reconciliation and Stewardship of Creation. "Why wouldn't we? A revival is a movement of the Spirit among the people of God, a concrete sign that we want to share God's love out loud with each other and with new people. That sounds like the Jesus Movement."

The six Episcopal Revivals will vary in design, but most will be multi-day events that feature dynamic worship and preaching, offerings from local artists and musicians, personal testimony and storytelling, topical speakers, invitation to local social action, engagement with young leaders, and intentional outreach with people who aren't active in a faith community.

The Revivals rise from partnerships of diocesan leadership and the  Presiding Bishop's Office for Evangelism Initiatives.  Neighboring dioceses are welcomed and encouraged to join.

Revivals are multi-day events filled with such elements as energizing worship and prayers services, dynamic preachers, mesmerizing music, personal testimony and storytelling, topical speakers, and a call to action.   READ MORE
The Rev. Dcn. Geoffrey Smith Named Episcopal Church Chief Operating Officer

"Geof is a natural fit for where we are on this journey. He combines in his person highly skilled managerial competency and the experience of a seasoned corporate executive, with a genuinely Christ-centered spirit and the heart of a servant." READ MORE
