Letter from Pastor Scott Landis - April 3, 2020

Aloha Keawala’i ‘Ohana, 

I write to you while we are well into our second week of “shelter-in-place.” We are learning to operate in new ways remotely trying our best to stay at home as much as possible. I continue to pray for you daily during this challenging period and ask that you do the same for all members of our ‘ohana. Along with many other prayers, please remember those on the front lines – our doctors, nurses, EMT’s and firefighters in your prayers as they risk their own health each day to care for those in need.

I will offer virtual church again this week, Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Just go to our church website or Facebook Group Page and join us. This week I invite you to create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu (it can be a coffee table, desk, or dining table). You may wish to put a palm branch and a candle on it to remind you of Palm Sunday. Doing this will enhance your sense of worship as we join together in prayer and reflection. I also invite you to bring an offering (lulu) to your kuahu. It might be a mask, a food item you are giving away, a monetary contribution you are making to the church or something else you want to bless as your gift to help those in need. It feels good to do something to help others. We will take time to bless those gifts in our “offering of prayer.”

Please send me any prayer requests you have for our pule in this Sunday’s worship. Requests can be sent to slandis1955@gmail.com.

We had a nice meeting in our Zoom Room on Wednesday. Consider joining us (again or for the first time) this week at 11. 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.

Attached to this email is an important announcement and instructions on the 2020 Census. Please take time to read this and act accordingly. We should all do our part to be counted.

Finally, UCC Conference Minister David Popham, has asked that we post hearts on our doors with messages of love and hope. It can be a simple as a heart with no words or may be as creative as you want by offering a message of aloha to your neighbors and passersby. I envision offering gratitude to those on the front-line, and/or delivery folks. It’s beautiful to let others know we care.

May you sense the aloha of your spiritual ‘ohana during this time of separation. I offer you my love and prayers as we walk through this time apart – yet together.

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Pastor Scott Landis
