Pastoral Update from Pastor Scott Landis
September 24, 2021


Aloha Keawala’i ‘ohana

IMPORTANT: WORSHIP SERVICES at Keawala`i are currently VIRTUAL ONLY. Our Covid numbers are coming down and seem to be holding steady thereby increasing the possibility of re-opening our doors for public worship soon. We are closely monitoring developments on Maui and will keep you informed as decisions are made. Any changes will be announced in my weekly pastoral update and on our website. Currently you can livestream our service (Sunday at 10 a.m.) by going to keawalai.org and click on the Vimeo button or watch a recording of the service (posted later in the day).

ZOOM ALOHA HOUR will also resume this week at 11:15 (or shortly after worship concludes). Simply click on this link:

Please join us for a time to talk story and catch up on each other’s lives. Bring your snacks, beverages, and sense of humor. See you there.

The writer of Mark gives us a “stripped-down” version of the gospel. Known for his paucity of words and rapid movement from scene to scene, Mark takes us through Jesus’ life and teaching in warp speed. This week we hear, yet again, just how difficult it is to be a faithful disciple. Jesus sternly warns his closest allies of the importance of not standing in the way of another’s spiritual path. He also opens our eyes to the essential elements of a faithful life.

I hope you will join us this week for a blessed time of worship. Remember to visit our website: keawalai.org and click on Vimeo – to view the service in live stream.

Please print out this week’s order of worship (attached below) and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu. I also 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. You can also still send a check to the church. Mahalo for your generosity and support.

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.

You can also email me at slandis1955@gmail.com. I hold these prayer requests in my personal prayer and will offer them during the service as well.

We will 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. Wednesday Zoom Room is a great time to prepare for worship the following Sunday as we spend some time thinking about the theme for the week.

I was reminded recently of an old proverb that says, “May you live in interesting times.” Surely these are they. I remain optimistic that we are learning so much in this strange and “interesting” time. God has been with us throughout. Sometimes we just have to look a little harder. I encourage you to remain steadfast in your faith. Know that you are not alone. God is near. Mahalo ke Akua!

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Scott Landis, Interim Pastor
