Pastoral Update from Pastor Scott Landis
October 24, 2020

Aloha Keawala’i ‘Ohana, 

It was so nice to have a break from the regular routine and to be the recipient of the ministerial leadership of both Kahu Bob Nelson and Dennis Barger. Mahalo nui loa for your gift to us all. It was a joy to worship with you virtually

This week we conclude our series from the Hebrew scriptures. Our story ends as the Israelites prepare to cross over into the Promised Land. Moses will not enter with them but instead dies having never reached that goal. The story begs the question of each of us, “what is our legacy?” What goals do we hope to achieve, and which ones must be left for others to fulfill?

I invite you to join us for worship as we participate in another experience of worship. We will be live on Facebook Live, Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Just go to our church website or Facebook Group Page and join us by clicking on https://www.facebook.com/groups/keawalai.

I will open the live stream 10 minutes before the hour to allow adequate time for you to login. If you cannot join us at 10, remember the video of our worship service remains on our Facebook page for you to access anytime.

To assist your participation, please print out this week’s order of worship and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu, to enhance the virtual experience. I invite you to bring an offering (lūlū) for a time of dedication and blessing. Please note: Online giving is available to you. All you need to do is go to our church website www.keawalai.org and click on the donate now button. You can do this anytime. It takes only a few minutes to set up your profile for a one-time or recurring gift. Mahalo for your generosity and support.

Parents: Please note, I’ve attached the Sunday School lesson for this week. Feel free to use whatever makes sense for your child as the story relates to the scriptures for this Sunday.

Please send me any prayer requests you have for our pule in this Sunday’s worship. Requests can be sent to keawalaichurch@gmail.com or call the church office at 808-879-5557.

Following worship, we will host an KCC Zoom Aloha Hour. Gather with us to talk story with folks in our ‘ohana. Aloha hour is lots of fun! Just click on

We also continue to meet weekly in our KCC Zoom Room on Wednesday’s at 11. Consider joining us (again or for the first time) this week. We will send out another email early next week with the link and instructions. You can see others in our ‘ohana from your living room or lānai.

We are in the process of planning to reopen hale pule for in-person worship. This is a complicated process that involves careful attention to governmental regulations, medical science, and recommendations of the CDC. In-person worship will NOT be the same as in the past. Some protocols will be necessary to ensure the safety of all. Masks will be required at all times. No congregating will be permitted on the premises. No singing or aloha hour and a physical distance of at least 6 feet (except for family members) must be maintained at all times. We are carefully watching “the numbers” as we reopen the island and will keep you apprised on a date of reopening to a limited number of participants.

Finally, next Sunday (first Sunday of the month) is both a time to celebrate communion at 10 a.m. and a time to participate in our outdoor prayer/meditation service at 8 a.m. I had such a positive response to my thought on offering the meditation/prayer services each Sunday during Advent. I’m wondering, for those of you planning to participate, would you prefer a Sunday morning experience OR a Saturday/Sunday evening? I thought it might be nice to offer Sunset Services of Contemplation. I’d love to hear your preference. Just send me an email (slandis1955@gmail.com) and we’ll see which gets the most interest. Mahalo!

Please join members and friends of our church as we worship together and pray for our church, our state, our nation and our world. There continues to be so much turmoil in our world today. Let us commit ourselves to do everything we can (including our prayers) to bring about peace, compassion, and justice for all beings.

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Scott Landis
Interim Pastor
