All Saints' Organ Project Receives Major Atherton Foundation Grant
Jenny White is a regular visitor to Kaua`i and when she is on island she attends All Saints’ and sings in the choir. Back home on the mainland Jenny stays up to date with news about the church through the Epistle . Earlier this year Jenny contacted us and told us that she was willing to work with us to write grants and apply for funds for the organ project. Apparently angels come when most needed!

The “Organ and Santuary Enhancement Project” has been funded entirely by pledges, donations and grants and is completely separate from the All Saints’ and Preschool budgets. The project is currently 89% funded and we have been working hard to raise the final $50k to complete the funding.

Jenny was the catalyst that resulted in Bill Caldwell, Ron Morinishi and I getting together with her to explore the whole grant application process. We had talked about the grant process in the past in general terms but it was Jenny’s drive that really got us going. We got together with her during one of her regular visits and worked on applications for three grants – FLEX, the Atherton Foundation and the G.N. Wilcox Trust.

We were disappointed when our first application, FLEX, was rejected. So much hard work only to be rejected. That was so disappointing. Why was our application rejected? What did we do wrong?

But then…! We received a letter from the Atherton Foundation and I am really pleased to inform you that this application was successful and they have awarded us $10,000 for the organ project! 

Mahalo to the Atherton Foundation and - Mahalo Ke Akua!

Our 3 rd application, the G.N. Wilcox Trust, was submitted on September 30 th and is being reviewed by the trust. I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we hear anything.

Until then, please keep us in your prayers. Ke Akua is listening and the Holy Spirit has our back!

Father David and Susan Englund Return to All Saints'

Father David and Susan Englund returned to All Saints' in time to bless the animals at our services on October 6 th . They will be with us - God willing - to share their wisdom and wonderful voices until our new rector is selected and arrives at All Saints'.

According to Senior Warden, David Murray, David and Susan are SO pleased to be back!

Please give them a big hug and welcome back when you see them!

Dropps Donates Five-month Supply of Environmentally-Friendly Laundry Detergent

A couple of years ago Bill and I found another way to cut back on single-use plastics. We began using Dropps laundry detergent; plastic free detergent pods shipped in a cardboard box. It is great that there is no plastic and even better that they actually work well.

Fast forward to a couple of months ago. After an Epistle article about Laundry Love I decided to approach Dropps for a detergent donation. I sent an email request to their customer service department. I was able to include links to The Garden Island article about Laundry Love and the Hawai`i Public Radio Helping Hand interview with Geoff Shields about the ministry. This week we received a box with enough pods to clean 804 loads of laundry! That’s almost five months of Laundry Love sessions worth of detergent.

Can I hear an “Hallelujah!”?

Mahalo nui loa to Dropps ( https://www.dropps.com) for their generous donation.

With a little time and thought you, too, can help All Saints’ ministries thrive. 

"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

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.

New Completion Date Projected For February 2020
Artist's rendering of the façade of the new organ.

We have recently been informed that the completion date for the organ project has been pushed back by approximately 3 months. The new anticipated shipping date is Christmas-time, 2019 which should enable installation of the organ and a dedication concert at the end of February, 2020.

There are several reasons for the delay. Unfortunately the pipes for the façade, which were manufactured in Holland, were held up at customs in the port of Los Angeles for a considerable period of time. They only arrived at the Rosales shop in Los Angeles on Sept 27 th and will need some custom work before they can be installed. In addition, another set of pipes (the “crowning” reed pipes which are the very generous gift of Fred Swann) and the valves to operate all of the pipes have not yet arrived at the Rosales workshop.

Morris Wise, our organ project coordinator, is in regular contact with Kevin Gilchrist, technical director at Rosales. We will keep you informed as we monitor progress against the new timeline. 

The All Saints’ organ, which originally had 4 ranks and 316 pipes, will now have 21 ranks and 1250 pipes. To quote Morris “It is going to be a showstopper - and though I am saddened by the delay, in the end, it will all be worth it!”

Ask and You Shall Receive
Sheets Donated to Preschool
Recently the sheets used to cover cubbies in the preschool courtyard were taken. Senior Warden David Murray made an announcement asking for anyone in the congregation to donate used sheets to the preschool. We now have two angels. Tracy Baumann has stepped up and contributed sheets to the preschool to help keep things covered. She and Carla Leung have met the need to replace the missing sheets.

Mahalo nui loa to Tracy and Carla!
Search Committee Prayer

Gracious gifting God, we are reminded of your gifts in and for all the children of the church. Call on our gifts now, use us, in service of your whole church. As we work to call a new [rector] to [All Saints’], may your Holy Spirit lead us to discern the gifts we seek and see those gifts clearly in the candidates you are sending to us. In our communications, interviews and meetings with them, may we find ourselves once again who we surely are in Christ Jesus, stewards of your many gifts. Amen.

[Anglican Communion News Service] Anglican primates, bishops, clergy and laity from provinces in East Asia heard the archbishop of Canterbury give a powerful vision for the ministry of the Anglican Communion on Oct. 4. Archbishop Justin Welby made the comments during an address at the triennial Full Assembly meeting of the Council of the Church in East Asia (CCEA), which is taking place in Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, East Malaysia. In his address, Welby spoke of the potential and capacity of the Anglican Communion to work for transformation in the world.

The CCEA brings together Anglican churches in Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam, as well as Australia and Japan.

Posted October 10, 2019
After last week’s continued deluge of very difficult readings in the Sunday lectionary, this Sunday we see the light of hope begin to dawn. The heartbroken question from Psalm 137 that resonated in my heart was “How can we sing the Lord’s song on alien soil?” We get part of an answer this week. In our reading from Jeremiah 29, we hear this:
Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease. But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

Last week, we saw the despair of the exiled in Psalm 137. Here we have the exiles being urged to not sit around in that despair, but to make new lives for themselves in the meantime. God has not abandoned them, but urges them to see that their life as a people continues. One of the reasons they can sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land is that God is not tied to any one land, but is always with God’s people wherever they are. It’s a subtle point, but life-giving for those who fear they have lost everything they hold dear.
What if we saw the asylum seekers and refugees of our world for what they are– as exiles, who have been driven from their homes by violence, by warfare, by hunger? In the face of loss and grief, resilience is a powerful form of resistance. In our words from Jeremiah, resilience and an embrace of the future is exactly what is being urged. What is being urged by God is not surrender. Rather, God is encouraging the people to stay strong, to keep their culture alive, in hope for tomorrow.
This word of hope and resistance through resilience is a message for our time as well. Not to close our eyes to our situation of being strangers in a strange land, but to resist it by refusing to subside into silence and surrender. To refuse to go away, and to refuse to forget the Lord’s song. This kind of hope is a product of faith as a healing, regenerative force, and it appears in our gospel passage this week, as well.
We who take seriously the example of Christ in our current time and try to embody that example know what is like to live as exiles, attempting to sing the Lord’s song on alien soil. The person of faith in our day and age is a person in exile from the world’s values, yet hope and faith enables us to have the power to grow into God’s call to us as bearers of God’s good news to the world. How best to resist those who seek to overpower you but to put down roots and flourish where you are planted, and to do it with joy, knowing that God accompanies you wherever you are?
Singing the song of the Lord on alien soil is the challenge and the gift of the Christian life, especially in our current time which too often elevates devious behavior, lying, contempt, and taking advantage of the weak and the poor for profit. We are called to sing that song of the Lord even in the face of ill-will and even outright evil, as an act of resistance to the soul-sickness that pervades too many in our time. We are called to re-member the good things God has done for us, and to carry that hope as a visible banner for those around us.

Cultivating a Tangible Wellness
By Kathryn Nishibayashi 

The readings appointed for this Sunday (2 Timothy 2:8-15 and Luke 17:11-19) are quite fitting as church members are in the midst of discerning the gifts they are able to pledge to their congregation in the upcoming year. I have just passed the one-year mark working for the Kaleidoscope Institute. One program within the Kaleidoscope Institute called Holy Currencies focuses on six “holy currencies” that work together to create sustainable ministry: gracious leadership, time and place, relationship, wellness, truth, and, finally, money. It was these holy currencies that I thought of when I first read this week’s readings.

As the last line of today’s gospel reading says, “Your faith has made you well.” Your pledge to your congregation is a tangible manifestation of wellness — not only your financial wellness but the wellness of your congregation. It enhances your congregation’s ability to carry out its ministries, including those involving cultivating gracious leadership and relationship in the church community.

Your pledge shows your truth and will help your congregation live into its truth as they minister to others both within and beyond the parish walls. It will contribute to your church’s ability to provide a time and place for others to gather to do God’s work in and for the world. Finally, money is the currency people are most familiar with. Money is the form in which most pledges come. But think about how else you can pledge this year using one or more of the holy currencies. No gift is too small as long as you do your best to present yourself to God as “one who is approved by him,” as the epistle said.

Stewardship is not a passive activity. So “get up and go on your way.” Listen for where and how God is calling you to give your gifts to your parish and plan to give generously, knowing you are helping cultivate the flowing of holy currencies in your parish community.

Achieving Zero Hunger is not only about addressing hunger, but also nourishing people, while nurturing the planet. This year, World Food Day calls for action across sectors to make healthy and sustainable diets affordable and accessible to everyone. At the same time, it calls on everyone to start thinking about what we eat.
In recent decades, we have dramatically changed our diets and eating habits as a result of globalization, urbanization and income growth.

We have moved from seasonal, mainly plant-based and fibre-rich dishes to diets that are high in refined starches, sugar, fats, salt, processed foods, meat and other animal-source products. Less time is spent preparing meals at home, and consumers, especially in urban areas, increasingly rely on supermarkets, fast food outlets, street food vendors and take-away restaurants.

A combination of unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyles has sent obesity rates soaring, not only in developed countries, but also low-income countries, where hunger and obesity often coexist. Now over 670 million adults and 120 million girls and boys (5-19 years) are obese, and over 40 million children under 5 are overweight, while over 820 million people suffer from hunger.

An unhealthy diet is the leading risk factor for deaths from non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and certain cancers. Linked with one fifth of deaths worldwide, unhealthy eating habits are also taking a toll on national health budgets costing up to USD 2 trillion per year.

Obesity and other forms of malnutrition affect nearly one in three people. Projections indicate that the number will be one in two by 2025. The good news is that affordable solutions exist to reduce all forms of malnutrition, but they require greater global commitment and action.
“If we want to make a better world, food is a very transformative tool.”

Bela Gil
Bela Gil is a Brazilian chef, TV host, nutritionist, food activist and author. She worries about the fact that 821 million people are going hungry worldwide but also, about the need for those who have access to food to choose healthier and more sustainable diets.

“We have almost the same number of obese individuals and undernourished people,” Gil says.

Gil, who is the daughter of world-renowned musician Gilberto Gil, says she uses mass communication and social media to remind people that traditional, local food sources can help to improve nutrition.

“I use a lot of ingredients that people don’t usually find in a supermarket” Gil says. “I work with indigenous, native ingredients or ancient grains and people are, like, oh my God, I want to try that! Chefs have a powerful thing in our hands, which is the ability to influence people’s behavior.”
It was during her first visit to the famed Amazon rainforest, much of which lies in her home country, that Gil realized how much of a contribution traditional, native foods could make to healthy and sustainable diets.

A greater appreciation of forest foods, says Gil, could help to provide income for indigenous and other local communities, as well as an incentive to stay and take care of the land.
“Everything we choose to eat has an impact—on us, on the environment, on society and on food producers,” Gil says. She urges people to think more about where our food comes from and to demand more nutritious food for all.

“That’s a form of social responsibility because when we have more people demanding good food, it’s a way to democratize access to more nutritious foods.”
World Food Day – It’s your day!
Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Collective action across 150 countries is what makes World Food Day one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, NGOs, the media, and general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.

Make #WorldFoodDay your day – share your individual action for #ZeroHunger or join the call by developing a group event or activity.

Service Celebrating New Saint Seals Bond Between Her Congregation and Church that Took Her Name

[Episcopal News Service] A California congregation named for one of The Episcopal Church’s newest saints, St. Anna Alexander, celebrated its namesake at a Sunday worship service that included a visit from two members of the church that Alexander helped establish in Pennick, Georgia.

Dwala Nobles, 59, and Zora Nobles, 65, cousins and longtime members of Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Pennick, brought with them century-old relics from Alexander’s work at Good Shepherd Church and its school, including Alexander’s Book of Common Prayer. On Oct. 6, Saint Anna’s Episcopal Church in Antioch, California, welcomed them as the congregation celebrated Alexander’s legacy as the only black Episcopal deaconess.

“It was almost like coming home,” Dwala Nobles told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview the day after the service. “We felt like we were home among family and friends.”

Saint Anna’s, the first Episcopal church to be named after an African American woman, was formed in March through the merger of two former congregations , St. George’s in Antioch and St. Alban’s in Brentwood in the Diocese of California. Alexander had only a year earlier been confirmed as a saint in The Episcopal Church, when General Convention in July 2018 voted to add her and her feast day, Sept. 24, to the church’s calendar of saints.

Alexander was born in 1865 and died in 1947, and she spent much of her adult life ministering to poor black residents of Glynn and McIntosh counties in rural Georgia, particularly through education. She became a deaconess in 1907 in an era before the church allowed women as priests or deacons. Among those she taught at Good Shepherd were Dwala Nobles’ father and Zora Nobles’ father.

Among the items they brought with them to California were Alexander’s hymnal from 1878 and a Sunday school ledger from the early 20th century. Some of the materials include Alexander’s handwritten notes on teaching methods.
“St. Anna was indeed the persistent force encouraging and urging her students to aim high,” the Rev. Jennifer Nelson, a deacon in the Diocese of California, said in her sermon for the Oct. 6 service. Nelson is originally from Guyana and said Alexander reminded her of the caring teachers who encouraged her in her education.

“She had God’s blessing as she continued to forge onward, blazing a path that gives us a window that now shows us the courage and tenacity she would need to overcome the bigotry and discrimination in her time.”

During the service, Alexander’s Book of Common Prayer and other relics were placed on the altar. The cousins from Alexander’s Georgia church presented the congregation at Saint Anna’s with a framed picture of Alexander that was propped against the altar. Saint Anna’s reciprocated by giving Dwala Nobles and Zora Nobles a silver chalice that had been used by one of the two congregations that merged to form the new church.

A video of the service was shared on the church’s Facebook page .

Alexander was “imbuing us with her spirit,” the Rev. Jill Honodel, the congregation’s long-term supply priest, told ENS. She described it as an emotional and joyous day, centered around highlighting the life and works of an Episcopal saint who is only beginning to receive the full recognition she deserves.

“It felt like together, from coast to coast, we are taking what has been hidden and invisible all these years and we have the privilege and the honor of revealing it,” Honodel said.

“It was just really critical that we come for this. We know this is just the beginning of the relationship,” Dwala Nobles said.

Applications are being accepted for Episcopal delegates to represent the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church at the 64th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) in New York City, March 9th – 20th, 2020.

The Episcopal delegation will consist of one delegate from each province of The Episcopal Church and one delegate from the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe. The Episcopal delegation aims to be representative of the entire Episcopal Church. Priority will be given to church leaders who have used the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action as a platform for their ministry, or plan to do so in future ministry.

Episcopal delegates will observe the official UNCSW meetings at United Nations headquarters and will represent the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church through their advocacy at the United Nations. They will be expected to participate in conference calls prior to UNCSW and evaluations, reports and follow-up actions once back home.

The 2020 UNCSW session will focus on Beijing +25, the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. The session will review and appraise its implementation and will assess current challenges affecting the implementation of the Platform for Action, the achievement of gender equality, the empowerment of women and its contribution towards the full realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. See more here: https://www.unwomen.org/en/csw/csw64-2020 .

Applicants of any gender must be at least 19 years old, able to speak to the theme, and willing to participate in advocacy at UNCSW. Youth (ages 15-18) also may apply to be youth delegates, but must be accompanied by an adult chaperone, preferably a parent or legal guardian.

Applicants should have a relevant role at the parish, diocesan and/or provincial level, be accountable to a diocesan or provincial authority, and have a process for reporting back to the local community after participating in UNCSW.

Delegates will be expected to be present in New York City for the UNSCW meeting between March 6 - 20 or as close to the entire stay as possible. Delegates will be responsible for their own travel, housing, program expenses and fundraising. A limited amount of scholarship funding may be available to support candidates who might not otherwise be able to attend due to financial constraints.

Following a review of the applications, the delegates will be chosen by Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. All applicants will be notified by mid-November.

Application is available in English and in Spanish here . Deadline is October 25 th .
For more information contact Lynnaia Main, Episcopal Church representative to the United Nations, lmain@episcopalchurch.org .
The Passover and Exodus from Egypt
When Pharaoh refuses to free the Israelite people, God sends a series of plagues upon the Egyptians. Following the last devastating plague, which claims the life of the Egyptian firstborn, the pharaoh finally releases the Israelites.

The first Passover is observed at this time, during the night of the tenth plague. God promises that death will “pass over” the houses of the Israelites who properly observe the rituals of the Passover.

The next day, the people, led by Moses, leave Egypt and cross the Red Sea, which miraculously parts to let them pass. The water then washes over the Egyptian army that is pursuing them.
