THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

What does the Book of Common Prayer say about Holy Baptism?  Holy Baptism is the full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ's Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble page 298
 
Interim Rectors Ramblings


I'm grateful to again be part of the Holy Nativity ohana.
Like many journeys, my journey with Holy Nativity has had unexpected detours. Three years ago, on May 1, 2016, I began my ministry as Holy Nativity's Priest-in-Charge. I presumed that I would journey with you from the end of the prior rector's ministry until the beginning of the next rector's ministry. I had no idea that four months later serious health issues would abruptly and prematurely end my ministry at Holy Nativity.
Thanks to God and modern medicine, I recovered and am now as healthy as possible.
As you may know, from late winter 2018 through May 2019, I served as a consultant, working with Holy Nativity's Vestry, School Board, clergy, and Head of School to set in place structures and working agreements designed to avoid major conflicts between the parish and the school in the future. Those efforts acquired the very appropriate moniker, "Mission Possible."
Then, when Canon Kate announced her upcoming extended stays in Europe and Okinawa, the Vestry elected me, with the Bishop's concurrence, as Interim Rector. My tenure as Interim began June 1. God willing, I hope to be with you until Holy Nativity's next rector arrives and, by working together, to finish preparing the way for his/her successful ministry.
Although I will be present one or two Sundays per month, my quarter-time ministry will focus on fully implementing the Mission Possible vision. Meanwhile, Fr. Chris will conduct most worship services, provide pastoral care and oversee the staff and day to day operations.
In nautical terms, my goal is to help us stay on an even keel and steady course (nautical metaphors come perhaps too readily to this retired Navy padre). Living into the Mission Possible vision and structures paints an exciting present and future for Holy Nativity Church, School, and our other missions. It's a blessing to journey with you once again!
Fr. George

It has been such a happy enhancement to our 9:30 worship service to have our new choir director, Chris Susuki, and our choir itself participating in the service since Easter.  Holy Nativity is eager to receive "budget-relieving" gifts to support our music program.  Please consider making one!

Our church and school mission statements
The Church of the Holy Nativity
Our mission calls us to glorify and enjoy God's love, celebrate Christian life as expressed in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition, provide for education, encourage spiritual growth and share God's bounty through outreach.
Holy Nativity School
Rooted in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition, Holy Nativity School is dedicated to excellence in education within a small and personalized environment. Built upon principles of respect and inclusion, Holy Nativity School values each child's individuality as it develops principled citizens who recognize their role in the local and global community.
In 1662 in the Book of Common Prayer, Thomas Cranmer wrote "Grant that we may in such wise hear them [the Scriptures], read , mark , learn and inwardly digest them...." We should each read and inwardly digest the mission statements above. Another article will explore the statements more deeply, inviting you to further "inward digestion.
