I have felt called to ordination as a Vocational Deacon for at least ten years. I started the discernment process when Fr. Ben was at All Saints’. Although I knew this was God’s call for me – I kept ignoring the call until the beginning of this year. Because of conversations with several people I finally decided to act on the call.

There are a bunch of requirements to start the Path for Ordination as a Vocational Deacon. This is outlined on the Diocese website ( https://www.episcopalhawaii.org/apps/search?q=Vocational+Deacon ). Because we didn’t have a resident priest at the time I began this journey, it didn’t follow in the exact order outlined on the website.

Rev. Mary Tudela wrote a letter to the Bishop to nominate and support me as a candidate for ordination as a Vocational Deacon. This letter was given to the Vestry asking for their support. Vestry members signed a letter to the Bishop to nominate me and pledge financial and spiritual support. I then wrote to the Bishop accepting the nomination. 

I had to submit the following:

  • Spiritual Autobiography 
  • Reflection on my discernment process
  • Evidence of Baptism and Confirmation
  • Three Letters of Recommendation
  • Forms for a background check
  • Medical forms from my doctor

I had to travel to Honolulu twice to complete psychological testing and meet with psychologists. While in Honolulu, I met with the Bishop (one of the requirements).

I also met with the Commission on Ministry, which I did by Zoom Call (video conference). 

Once all of the reports (background check, medical and psych, Commission on Ministry) are received by the Bishop, he then accepts or declines the Nominee as Postulant. Thankfully the Bishop approved my application on October 2 nd .

My training, an Introduction to Formation, started on October 5 th with Rev. Diana Akiyama. This involves 10 meetings over a year and is a bridge to Waiolaihui`ia, 

Waiolaihui`ia is the Diocese's local formation program for the Priesthood and Diaconate. We are one of the participating dioceses in the Iona Initiative, a program based in the Diocese of Texas, which provides the curriculum for local diocesan programs for training priests and deacons.

Waiolaihui`ia is a 3-1/2 year long program. Once that is done, there is an internship to complete. 

It is a long way to ordination but the journey will be amazing and transformative!

I appreciate all the support I have received from the church and friends. I have been humbled by the many words of support from my All Saints' family. 

Mahalo and God Bless,

Mary Margaret
Here is a brief explanation for those who don’t understand the role of a Deacon.

A Deacon is an ordained minister of the Episcopal Church

Unlike priests, they cannot perform the Holy Sacraments, but they assist the priest in their duties. They proclaim the gospel, lead intercessions, wait at the Eucharistic table, and direct the order of the assembly 

The deacon's primary ministry is to take the church to the world: to inspire and engage others in participation in God's mission of restoration and reconciliation; inspiring others to ministry in the world, which involves serving the poor, sick, weak, and lonely, usually outside the church. They are to model the ministry of service that every Christian promised at baptism, and to represent the service of all Christians through the deacon's liturgical role.
Chris Wataya Steps Up to Help Get People to Church
One of the expectations for Episcopalians is church attendance. Despite our best efforts, we can’t always make it to Sunday services. Chris Wataya has chosen to help make that a little easier. Chris is willing to come to your home (Wailua/Kapa`a area only) and give you a ride to and from the 9:30AM Sunday service. You can call Chris at 808-652-0230 if you need a lift.

Mahalo nui loa, Chris!

Editor's Note: I know of other parishioners who have expressed an interest in supporting Chris in this ministry. If you want to help out please contact your Epistle at news@allsaintskauai.org
All Saints’ Is Looking For Someone To Care For Infants and Toddlers During Sunday Morning Services
Recently the Vestry approved hiring an individual to provide childcare for our youngest parishioners in the nursery during our Sunday services. The hours would be 7:45AM - 10:45AM in Memorial Hall. Compensation will be $50 per Sunda y. The actual time with children would be from the beginning of each service until the Passing of the Peace (as described in the weekly service bulletin). If you or anyone you know is interested in the position, please contact Cami at 808-822-4267 or church@allsaintskauai.org .
DHHL Anahola Jobsite
Please join the One Ohana Team in Anahola on Oct 26 th (on Holoikalapa St). We started earlier this year at the very beginning of three homes, and they are now pretty far along. I heard that roofing went on last month, so we should be working inside now with insulation, painting, and maybe outside decking and siding. We will be joined by two new Americorp volunteers, Mitch Myers and Mackenzie Hampton. 

For those that want to carpool, we plan on leaving All Saint’s parking lot at 7:30AM. Otherwise just meet us at the job site at 7:45AM. 

Please let me know if you can join us, so Habitat can plan accordingly.

Joyful Worship
Posted October 15, 2019
“We go to church now, Mama?” My children ask looking up to me with eager eyes, expectant and hopeful. It could be a Sunday morning, but it could just as easily be any day of the week. My children love to go to church. They tell me, “I see my friends at church.” They jump for joy when we say, “Let’s go! It’s time for church.” At 4 and 2 they think that church is the place where they can listen to music, meet their friends, and occasionally share a meal. It’s a building where they feel safe and welcome. It’s a place to go and give an abundance of hugs to friends. They are a joy to watch, but someday, I imagine, church may not bring them as much joy. There may come a time when they don’t feel welcome or when they question what they’re hearing. Their schedules may become busier pushing church to the backburner. If this time comes I want my children to remember the smiles that worship and the church community bring to them. During those times when they wonder why they are still going week after week to worship, I hope they remember this joy which they are experiencing now. 
I have a snapshot of my children dancing and twirling in the aisles of the church. The organ and piano were playing and the congregation was singing. The kids didn’t know the words to the song but they used their bodies to share in the good news it proclaimed. Both of them had smiles that lit up the room; so palpable was their joy. I give thanks for the church’s music and the gift of song. I hope they always remember this joy from music.   
Before bedtime we pray as a family lifting up prayers for people and for the world. We speak names out loud. We offer prayers for those who ask us to pray for them. We give thanks for family, friends, neighbors, and teachers. And then we go to church and see many of those faces in person. I love watching my children greet people at church with a high five or a hug. I love their smiles and seeing them loved by others and loving others. And it all begins with prayer. I hope they always remember the power found in prayer and the connections that form in the body of Christ. 
These are my prayers, my hopes, and my dreams for my children – that they will always feel welcome and share that same welcome with others.

Keeping Careful Watch Over God’s Gifts
“The Lord will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore.” — Psalm 121:7-8

By Kathy Hood Culmer

I was near the point of tears last year when I broke some of my mother’s salt and pepper shakers. I had kept them safely in a cabinet in the corner of the dining room for years, taking them out a few times during the year to dust them off and return them to their display case. This time, however, I must have pressed too hard on a shelf or something, setting off a chain reaction and causing a number of those shakers to go crashing to the floor, some of them unrecoverable. 

In terms of dollar value, the salt and pepper shakers my mother had collected for who knows how many years may not have been worth very much. Some, however, had come from pretty interesting places. My mother’s friends who traveled and knew she was a collector would bring her souvenir shakers from those places, and that gave them their value to her. I had contributed some in that way, as well. 

And while my mother has been gone from this earth for more than two decades, it has been important to me to take good care of “her” salt and pepper shakers, which have become mine, because of what they had meant to her. I treasure them and care for them as though she would someday return to see what a great job I’ve done and be pleased, or to tell me how proud she was of the loving care I have given to the special gift she left me.  

What if we held such regard for the gifts that God has given us for our provision and pleasure? What if we kept such careful watch over all that has been entrusted to us for our safekeeping, including our bodies, minds, relationships, and the earth’s resources, taking every measure possible to avoid breakage or overconsumption or misuse and abuse? What if we did so, not out of fear or obligation, but because of our great love for the Giver, because we want the Giver to be well pleased with us and maybe even proud of us?

What if we would spend every day we’re given expressing our thanksgiving for all that we have received in the way we care for all that has been provided?

Seeking Pictures of Church Fonts
(Baptismal Fonts That Is)
Did you know that our retired clergy and their spouses are remembered and lovingly cared for by the Rev. Cn. Frank and Norma Chun? If you are retired, you know well! On top of organizing gatherings, making home and hospital visits, and sending out a retired clergy newsletter, the Chuns send out birthday greetings and other pastoral notes. The notecards change each year and feature our churches in the Diocese, whether it's their stained glass windows, bells, or crosses. For 2020, Norma came up with the idea of featuring the church fonts! If you would like to submit a photo of your church font and hopefully make it onto the 2020 card, please send your digital file to news@episcopalhawaii.org , by December 1. Happy clicking!

Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Church of Sweden (Lutheran) Renew Commitment to ‘Join in the Care of Creation’
Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs
Posted October 17, 2019
[October 17, 2019] On September 24, following an interfaith event in New York, New York, to address climate change, The Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Church of Sweden (Lutheran) issued a statement outlining the churches’ “call to join in the care of creation.”

This joint statement, signed by Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry, ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton, and Church of Sweden (Lutheran) Archbishop Antje Jackelén, represents a renewed commitment among the three denominations to work together on the climate change issue. This pledge began in 2013 with the signing of a joint statement at the conclusion of the Sustaining Hope in the Face of Climate Change event in Washington, D.C.

The text of the September 24 statement follows:

A Call to Join in the Care of Creation From 
The Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Church of Sweden (Lutheran)

For several years, The Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Church of Sweden (Lutheran) have responded with increasing urgency to the damages being inflicted on Earth, our common home. The intensity of the challenges becomes ever more apparent, and the link of unprecedented climate change to human action rests now on insurmountable scientific evidence. In human societies, these climate changes compound social injustices, disproportionately affecting the most vulnerable among us with insecurities of food, livelihood and living space. Yet the burdens are not borne by humans alone: acceleration in the disappearance of species of plants and animals underlines the intertwined struggles of all life on Earth, and the destructive exploitation of resources leaves a diminished planet for all time to come.

As we observe the Season of Creation, we renew the call for our churches to work together for the sake of Earth and to build collaborations wherever possible, both with other communities of faith and with diverse agents in our civil society. Now is the time for science, politics, business, culture and religion – everything that is an expression of human dignity – to address together this critical issue for our time.

We claim the deep resources of our Christian faith for this work. We worship a God who created all that exists, who rejoices in its flourishing and blesses its diversity. We follow Jesus Christ, himself one of us “earth creatures,” who in dying entered deeply into mortal suffering and who in rising gives hope for the renewal and restoration of all God has made. We are inspired by the divine Spirit, intimately present to all creation, who gives us strength, wisdom and perseverance to join in the “here and now” work of God in healing the brokenness of our hurting home.

We acknowledge that these central affirmations of our faith have not guided our churches as they should. We have been slow to recognize the urgency of this crisis, lulled by traditions of honoring human life at the expense of other life and slow fully to integrate creation care into the way of love for God and neighbor. We have turned away from our own roles in environmental degradation, clinging as we could to lifestyles of unsustainable waste and overuse even as others suffer from lack of necessities. Moreover, majority cultures have ignored the insights of Indigenous siblings among us who are too often deeply affected by climate change, even as they bear spiritual practices and wisdom that can help the people of God to walk a more sustainable—and more loving—course.

We affirm that, with God’s guidance, we can do better in meeting this critical issue of our time. We acknowledge the dire urgency of this moment not through the lenses of despair, but through lenses of hope and determination. It is central to our holy calling to treasure the Earth and to care for it as our common home. This commitment does not compete with but surrounds our work for social justice within human communities.

Specifically, we commit ourselves to work together to allow the common commitments and different contexts of our churches to challenge, inspire, complement and strengthen one another’s witness.

  1. We will advocate for national and international policies and regulations that enable transitions to carbon neutral resilient societies in ways attentive to the many dimensions of climate justice.
  2. We will pursue education and advocacy efforts that attend to the most vulnerable, whose needs must be put ahead of the more privileged.
  3. We will raise awareness in our churches by promoting the use of education, worship and action resources available locally, regionally, nationally and globally.
  4. We will seek deeper understanding, through praying and listening to experiences in our own communities and with others, about ways overconsumption can be addressed and about the diverse impacts of climate change.
  5. We will build multiple collaborations: through support and cooperation with our international communions, through inter-religious dialogue and shared advocacy, through national and international organizations and with all others seeking to address climate change.

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba speaking for the We Will Speak Out Coalition

Gender justice is a core principle of the Anglican Alliance – to see women and men, girls and boys living in just, equal and mutually supportive relationships, with each individual recognised as made in the image of God.

We work closely with the Anglican Communion Office desk for Women in Church and Society, as well as with the Communion networks for women and the family.

We are members of the Side by Side coalition. This is a growing global movement of people of faith promoting gender justice across the world, working through local networks to meet local challenges in bringing about justice and equality for all people, irrespective of gender.

Ending Gender Based Violence

In every region of the world the churches and agencies of the Anglican Communion are committed to ending sexual violence.

We are working together with different coalitions and campaigns to share these experiences, support the vulnerable and strengthen the Church’s witness.

16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence

Every year, from 25 November to 10 December, we join with the International Anglican Women’s Network in encouraging the churches to take concrete steps to end violence against women and girls through the UN’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence campaign.

We Will Speak Out

We are a part of the We Will Speak Out coalition. This global grouping of Christian-based NGOs, churches and organisations, supported by individuals, has committed to work to end sexual violence in communities around the world.

We Will Speak Out aims to empower women and girls, transform relationships between women and men, and ensure that the voices of survivors of sexual violence – women, girls, men and boys – are central to the work of the churches.

The 16 days of activism against gender violence
October 18 th
St. Luke was a Gentile, and the traditional author of the Gospel According to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. He was a physician and is identified with the church's ministry of healing. In Col 4:14, he is described as "the beloved physician." Many Episcopal hospitals have the name of St. Luke because he is the patron saint of healing and the healing professions. His uniqueness is seen in his detailed description of the birth of Jesus, possibly deriving from information given him by Mary, the Lord's mother. It is in the Gospel According to Luke that we have the texts of the earliest Christian hymns, Magnificat, Benedictus, and Nunc dimittis . Only this gospel has the parables about the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. Luke gives special emphasis to the worth and status of women. He stresses the inclusivity of the compassion and love of God. Luke is often symbolized as a winged sacrificial ox holding a gospel book. This symbolism is taken from the Gospel According to Luke, which begins with Zechariah sacrificing in the temple and which describes the sacrifice of Christ. Luke is sometimes pictured as a painter making Christ known through art. Luke accompanied Paul on his second missionary trip from Troas to Philippi, and on the third missionary trip from Philippi to Jerusalem. He also went with Paul to Rome. Luke's life and work as a physician, historian, and evangelist is commemorated in the Episcopal calendar of the church year on Oct. 18.

Into the Promised Land
After the death of Moses at the edge of the Promised Land, Joshua becomes the new leader of the Israelites. They cross the Jordan River into the Promised Land and proceed to occupy the land. As their leader, Joshua sends spies to see how difficult this will be. 

Rahab, a harlot living in the wall-fortified city of Jericho, aids the spies by hiding them and misdirecting those who are pursuing them. In the coming Battle of Jericho, Rahab is spared as the walls of the city come falling down.
