Reflection from Kahu Kawika
Jesus in Disguise
Ka’u ‘Ohana i ke Akua,

This week’s gospel reading from Luke 24:13-35 gives us an intimate look at the Risen Lord. We find that on that original Easter Day late in the afternoon, two of Jesus’ disciples were walking back from Jerusalem to a town called Emmaus, about 7 miles to the west. One of them was named Cleopas, and I think Luke feels it is important to tell his name because we have a reference to a certain “Clopas,” the husband of one of the Marys who was with Jesus at the foot of his cross when he died (John 19:25), and Christian tradition asserts that he was also the brother of Joseph, thus making Jesus Cleopas’ hanai (adopted) nephew. 

These two were deep in talk story about the events leading up to that day – of Jesus’ betrayal, trial, execution, and reports they had heard from their female counterparts that the tomb was empty that morning and that Jesus was amazingly alive. As this was going on, Jesus appeared and sidled up to them but in “disguise” – they did not recognize him. They related to him all that they had heard and experienced, but yet despite the women’s reports that morning, they themselves had not yet seen Jesus alive. Jesus, identity still hidden, gives them a condensed “seminary class” on the signs from within the Old Testament that pointed to the life and resurrection of the Messiah. When they got to Emmaus, Jesus acted as if he were going to keep walking along the path, when the two asked him over for dinner. When Jesus breaks the bread at supper, they immediately recognized his true identity and he vanished from view. In their excitement, they both ran back all the way to Jerusalem to tell the others that they, too, had seen their Risen Lord!

This story reminds me of my own spiritual journey with Jesus. We often hear about drastic conversion accounts that some Christians have that refer to a “Damascus Road Experience” – like what the Apostle Paul went through when he as an initial enemy of Christians had his dramatic encounter with the Risen Jesus on the road from Jerusalem up north to Damascus. Paul literally was blinded by the light of Jesus’ presence, and after three days received his sight, got baptized by Ananias, and received his call to extend God’s gospel of love to all peoples and ethnicities beyond Judaism (Acts 9:1-19). 

For most of us, though, our spiritual encounter with God was not so immediate and dramatic, but rather was a gradual experience of knowing God and getting known by God. This is what I call our “Emmaus Road Experience” of Jesus walking with us through life. It may not be flashy, showy, or vivid, but it is nevertheless profound and deeply resonating as it takes root over the course of our lives.

Do we have eyes and ears to see and hear Jesus in the course of our daily lives? What about those moments in our lives when things get tough and daunting, like many of us are living through right now due to financial uncertainty and health concerns – how open are we to witnessing the presence and power of Christ in our lives and in our world? I believe that God works through both natural and supernatural means to affect God’s will, but the real question is whether we have the will and the vision to see God at work within and around us. Or do we still hold Jesus “in disguise” like Cleopas and his friend and thus fail to recognize him and give him the praise and credit?

I ke mahalo o ke Akua,

-Kahu Kawika+
For the aged and infirm, for the widowed and orphans, and for the sick and the suffering, especially ​Jenni, Richard, Mikey, Netta, Bill, and those we name silently or aloud, let us pray to the Lord. ​Lord, have mercy. 

For all who have died, especially those affected by the COVID-19 virus and those we name silently or aloud, in the hope of the resurrection, and for all the departed, let us pray to the Lord. Lord, have mercy. Amen.
Generous Support from the Sloggett Fund for All Saints' Ministries

Commit, and Providence Will Follow
On Tuesday, April 21 st , Kahu Kawika and I had an on-line meeting with Bishop Fitzpatrick to review the 2020 Sloggett Fund applications submitted by the Episcopal Churches on Kaua`i.

The Sloggett Committee consists of the Bishop, the Rector and Senior Warden of All Saints' Church, and a member of the Sloggett family, currently Dick Sloggett III. The Sloggett Fund determines how much will be available for disbursement each year and the Committee meets to review the applications submitted by All Saints' and the other Episcopal churches on the island.

This year applications were submitted by All Saints' ($24,850), Christ Memorial ($3,200) and the Episcopal Churches on West Kauai ($13,700).

All Saints' requests were:

  • $15,000 for Audio and Campus Internet System
  • $4,000 for the Labyrinth
  • $5,000 for Laundry Love
  • $850 for another historical presentation by Dean Colette Higgins - "Three Queens and the People of Kalaupapa." This will be a return visit for Dean Higgins who came to our church in June of last year and gave her presentation "In the Footsteps of Queen Kapi`olani."

I am pleased to inform you that the Sloggett Committee approved all requests in full.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Announcing Bible Study for the Easter Season
Zoom to the Rescue!
Aloha kakou,

I do miss seeing all of you on a regular basis! Hope you all are doing well, considering our social circumstances.

We're going to have a Zoom bible study during a portion of Tuesday evenings, 6:30PM - 8:00PM, in the Easter Season. We will focus on the prophet Jonah - the fifth of the twelve so-called "Minor Prophets" found toward the end of the Old Testament. Although this book was probably written later than the storyline of the 8th century BCE (some biblical scholars estimate that it was even written as late as the 3 rd - 2 nd centuries BCE during the Greek occupation of Palestine), the story of Jonah is one filled a profound message of God's love for all peoples within a narrative framework that is action-packed with touches of humor.

It is a short book (just four chapters). We will dig into the book as such:

  • Tuesday 5 May: Jonah 1 (Jonah fleeing from God's call to preach to the Ninevites)
  • Tuesday 12 May: Jonah 2-3 (Jonah's prayer within the great fish and Jonah's second call to preach to the Ninevites)
  • Tuesday 19 May: Jonah 4 (Jonah's defiance to God, and God's response to Jonah)

Depending on the level and depth of our discussions, we may flex what material we end up covering in any one Zoom meeting.

Here is the Zoom contact information:

From Buildings and Grounds
A Beautiful Day...to Repair the Gym Roof!
We hired a roofer to caulk all of the exposed “keystone” areas where roof tiles were missing. These are the potential leak spots (note black strips on light grey areas). He also looked for any holes as well. Even though he was roped off for safety, I asked him to stay away from the overhang portions of the roof, so that part may still leak. Hopefully this will hold until we lose more roof tiles.
Besides the roofer up on the gym, we also had the electricians (Phillip Panquites and Dave from Womack's Kaua`i Electronics) working on the fiber internet project yesterday. They installed additional electrical boxes for the fiber electronics and installed a new (higher amperage) power line to Memorial Hall (the old one was not up to code). Actual fiber internet installation should be done by early next week.

Also, Bob Vlach repainted the Labyrinth on Monday, making some adjustments to his original lines for better symmetry. 

Buildings and Grounds certainly had a busy week!

Happy Quasimodo Geniti!
This certainly was an Easter of firsts for probably the majority of Christians throughout the world and certainly for the vast majority of Christians here in the United States. No Easter week services except on line. No foot washing on Maundy Thursday; no silently watching the altar being stripped on Good Friday; no Easter Vigil; no Easter Day services. And, no communion – again – on this Sunday of all Sundays. How that hurt. I did not realize how much I would miss it.

But this was not the only “first” that we experienced this year. A few days after Easter Sunday we received a communication from a long-time friend back in Washington DC replying to our Easter greeting. His greeting? “Happy Quasimodo Geniti!” What? What the heck has that got to do with Easter?! Well, you live and learn. Quasimodo Geniti is the name of the Sunday after Easter. The words come from the beginning of the introit to Mass on that day, in Latin: “Quasi modo geniti infantes…”, literally: “Like just-born infants…”

You may recall that Quasimodo was the name that Victor Hugo gave to his hunchback of Notre Dame de Paris. In Hugo’s novel, Quasimodo, rejected by his parents for his deformities, is abandoned inside Notre Dame Cathedral, at a place where orphans and unwanted children were dropped off. Monseigneur Claude Frollo finds the child on “Quasimodo Sunday” and “called him Quasimodo; whether it was that he chose thereby to commemorate the day when he had found the child, or that he meant to mark by that name how incomplete and imperfectly molded the poor little creature was,” Hugo wrote.

So, there you go. Happy Quasimodo Geniti! And may we all be back in church – soon - raising our voices in celebration.

Mau loa me ke maluhia aloha – always with loving peace.

This Week In Sunday School
Paul Spreads the Good News
Sunday School has been suspended until the Diocese gives us the ok to return to the All Saints' campus for worship. Until that time, the Sunday School article in The Epistle will include more information so the parents of our keiki can share the lesson with their children.
Summary of Today’s Story

Saul—later renamed Paul—was in his early years a faithful Pharisee, a fierce enemy of Christianity and a persecutor of Christians. As a Pharisee, he believed that Jesus and his Christian followers were subverting Judaism and the Jewish Law and covenant on which Judaism was founded. As recorded in Acts 7, Saul watched or even oversaw the martyrdom of Stephen the deacon.

On the road to Damascus to seek out and punish more Christians, Saul encounters Christ in a flash of light from heaven. He is sent, blinded, to the home of a man named Ananias, who is told to baptize Saul.

Later, while Paul is imprisoned with his friend and fellow missionary Silas, an earthquake opens the prison door. The prison guard thinks that the prisoners have used this opportunity to escape. Knowing that his own punishment for allowing a prisoner to escape will be death, he is about to commit suicide. But Paul stops him. The guard, apparently moved by Paul’s mercy and kindness, asks for Paul’s way of salvation. Paul converts him and baptizes him and his whole household.

Weaving our Story with the Biblical Story

What a story!

The story of Paul’s conversion is validated by the number of times it is repeated in the Bible, both in the Acts of the Apostles written by Luke and by Paul himself in his letters to various churches, which he founded. Paul writes about this experience with an attitude of total humility and gratitude. His vision of the risen Christ on the road to Damascus becomes for him the starting point for his new faith.

Note that Paul was not converted from a “bad” person to a “good” person. As a zealous Pharisee, he was already faithful to God. His “conversion” was inspired by the revelation of Christ as the risen Lord. This revelation was so profound and powerful for him that he spent the rest of his life traveling around the Mediterranean proclaiming the Good News, that God has raised Christ from the dead and that salvation now comes through Jesus Christ and not through the Law.

Paul had his conversion experience while doing what he was called to do in ordinary life. Our call from God often comes not during special times of prayer and meditation, though we need these times of aloneness with God, but during ordinary times doing ordinary things in life.

Paul was convinced that God brought salvation through Jesus Christ and no longer through the Jewish Law. That meant that salvation was open to all people, not just to the Jews. He therefore preached this message to everyone around him, founding churches in Corinth, Thessalonika, Galatia, Philippi and wherever he traveled. His letters, which we know as  Corinthians, Galatians , etc., are letters written by Paul to the people in these churches about particular issues that they are dealing with as new churches of a new faith.

These basic themes arise from Paul’s letters:

  • Salvation to all: Paul preached his mission to the Gentiles—that Jew and Gentile alike receive God’s salvation through Jesus Christ.
  • The Body of Christ: We are all members of the one Body of Christ. All of us have gifts to share “to build up the church” and all are needed. Some are called to be preachers, or teachers, or evangelists; some are called to other kinds of service, but we all are equal in the Lord and in our service to the Lord in the church.
  • Living in Christ: As Christians, we are in union with Christ. In baptism, we live and die with him.

It is clear from the account of Paul’s conversion experience in Acts that God called Paul to a special mission. Because of Paul, Christianity spread beyond the borders of the Holy Land. Paul gave us a vision of God’s church as a place where we all have a part in building up the church and spreading the word of the Good News of Jesus.

Now it is up to us to continue his mission.

Prayer of Gratitude

April 21, 2020

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the word rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. 

-Psalm 105:1-4
It’s been a while since I noticed the way the wind feels on my skin, and felt the warmth of the sun kiss my freckled-face.  

Thank you, God, for the gift of each day. 

It’s been a while since I listened to the birds’ morning song, their tweets and chirps of music dancing from tree to tree. 

Thank you, God, for nature’s gifts. 

It’s been a while since I marveled at small, blue eggs, and watched a robin search for worms and return to three pecking beaks open wide for food. 

Thank you, God, for the gift of new life. 

It’s been a while since I studied the wild flowers scattered through the grass: white, purple, and red dotting the landscape. 

Thank you, God, for vibrant color. 
It’s been a while since I dug in the dirt clearing the way for seeds and sprouts picturing the critters and nutrients nourishing the ground. 

Thank you, God, for the ability to cultivate the earth. 
It’s been a while since I sat and watched my children play, listening to their imaginations take flight. 

Thank you, God, for family. 
It’s been a while since I connected with friends through laughter and stories for hours with no interruptions. 

Thank you, God, for technology. 
It’s been a while since I smelled the aroma of chopped veggies simmering all afternoon.

Thank you, God, for food to share. 
It’s been a while for me to remember your presence in my midst, but thankfully, you’ve been with me all along. 

Keep my eyes open, Lord, my heart ready to see your goodness, and a soul willing to rest in you.

National Cathedral’s Earth Day Virtual Panel Applies Lessons from COVID-19 to the Climate Crisis

By Egan Millard

Posted Apr 23, 2020
The Rev. Traci Blackmon speaks during a virtual panel for Earth Day hosted by Washington National Cathedral and the presiding bishop’s office on April 22, 2020.

[Episcopal News Service] Observing the  50th Earth Day under the COVID-19 lockdown was less of a celebration and more of a chance for reflection. Instead of rallies or parades, there were virtual discussions like the one hosted on Zoom and Facebook Live by the presiding bishop’s office and Washington National Cathedral as part of its  “Honest to God” Web series . Moderated by the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, the panel discussion drew connections between the immediate crisis of COVID-19 and the overarching climate catastrophe that threatens the future of civilization.

In both cases, Christians are called to respond by acting selflessly to protect the vulnerable, the panelists said.

“We must  flatten the curve  regarding our consumption of resources,” said the Rt. Rev. David Rice, bishop of the Diocese of San Joaquin in California. He was joined by the Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, creation care missioner for the Diocese of Western Massachusetts, and the Rev. Traci Blackmon, associate general minister of justice and local church ministries for the United Church of Christ.

The Episcopal Church  has long been engaged in climate action  and other environmental stewardship efforts under the theological mandate of being good stewards of God’s creation. So, although environmental protection has become a partisan issue in the United States, the church sees it as a spiritual calling.

Saint Mark the Evangelist
April 25 th
St. Mark is the author of the second gospel. He was also known as John Mark. He was the son of Mary of Jerusalem. Although she was a widow, she was a woman of means. She owned a house which was large enough to hold a large Christian gathering, and she had at least one maid. The Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples may have been in her house. Mark may have witnessed some of the final events in Jesus' life. It is believed that Mark was in the Garden of Gethsemane when Jesus was taken captive. The young man was noticed and about to be questioned. Apparently he lost his nerve and ran away, leaving his clothes in the hands of Christ's captors. Later on, Mark went to Antioch with his cousin Barnabas. He accompanied Paul and Barnabas on part of their first missionary journey, but "ran away" again for some unknown reason. His action angered Paul. When Mark asked to go along on the second journey, Paul flatly refused. Mark seems to have been close to Peter. It is believed that Mark was Peter's secretary and wrote down many of the things Peter remembered about Jesus. The gospel which bears Mark's name may be based on the eye-witness reports of Peter. Mark is supposed to have taken Christianity to Alexandria. The church in Alexandria claims Mark as its first bishop. One ancient account states that he suffered a martyr's death there. Mark's life is commemorated in the Episcopal calendar of the church year on Apr. 25 and his symbol is the winged lion.

Anglican Church of Melanesia Activates Emergency Operations in Response to Cyclone Harold

By ACNS staff 
Posted Apr 22, 2020
This picture by the Vanuatu Red Cross shows devastation caused by Cyclone Harold in the Polibetakever Community of Craig Cove in West Ambrym.
[Anglican Communion News Service] The Diocese of Vanuatu and New Caledonia in the Anglican Church of Melanesia has activated its Emergency Operations Centre in response to Cyclone Harold, which has caused severe devastation across the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, and Tonga.

In a Good Friday message from the Bishop of the Diocese of Central Vanuatu and New Caledonia, James Tama, announced that the Emergency Operations Centre had been activated in order to respond to the growing needs of individual parishioners, parishes and communities.

In Vanuatu alone, nearly 160,000 are in need of assistance. The land has been stripped of crops and homes, leaving thousands in need of shelter, water and food. The Red Cross has described the situation as “catastrophic”.

New Bible Studies: Faith in the Time of Coronavirus

20 April 2020
The Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) is now affecting every part of the world, disrupting people’s lives and creating fear, anxiety, sorrow and hardship. Where can we find strength and hope at this troubling time? What might faith look like in a time of COVID-19? How might God be calling us to respond to the impacts of the pandemic?

To help Christians reflect on their faith and scriptures in the midst of the pandemic, the Anglican Alliance has produced a series of Bible studies called  “Faith in the time of Coronavirus”.

In his foreword to the Bible studies, the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby writes:

“I am delighted to commend to you Faith in the time of Coronavirus and am deeply grateful to the Anglican Alliance for creating this resource. In such extraordinary times, it is not only helpful but vital that we engage together with God’s Word. 

Firstly, it enables us to root ourselves in the truth of God’s utter faithfulness. We discover afresh that, in Christ, we are never abandoned but are held by God, who comes alongside us. Secondly, God’s Word calls us to action. In opening Scripture together, we are reminded that we are the body of Christ, with new opportunities to serve our communities and to witness very practically to Christ’s love. And thirdly, we are filled anew with authentic hope. We can live the present and look to the future knowing the sovereignty of God and His reconciling love. 

I pray that, through these encouraging Bible studies, we will find comfort, strength and inspiration from God’s word, and be empowered by the Spirit to share that comfort and grace in these difficult days.”

This set of Bible studies has been developed by the Anglican Alliance in consultation with a small group of biblical scholars, theologians and church leaders from across the world. The Bible studies seek to create space to bring our hopes and fears before God and build resilience and trust. They allow us to lament all that brings grief and suffering. They encourage us to reflect on how we can support those vulnerable and marginalised people who are most impacted by this crisis. Above all, the Bible studies seek to help us to find hope, in reflecting on God’s presence and love, and how God shares our sorrow and suffering and brings assurance of new life.

All across the Communion, churches are shutting their buildings as public health measures are implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19. But even if the building is closed, the Church is still there, present in – and through – the people. At this time, these Bible studies can be used by individuals, by households, and by small groups connecting via phone or online. We invite you to explore Scripture through these studies, reflecting on God’s Word in the context of Coronavirus. Further studies will be added to address new topics over the coming weeks.

The Bible study resource can be found  here .
