Mahalo Ministry Breakfast – Sat., Jun 28th

To all who minister from our Cathedral – Mahalo Nui Loa!

Our breakfast together on Saturday was a lot of fun. Thank you for taking part of your weekend to come together in fellowship. Please know that we, your staff, are ever grateful for the various ministries, large and small, of the Cathedral ‘Ohana. No one of us can do everything – but by figuratively pulling the rope in the same direction in our various ministries, we usher in God’s Kingdom on earth. I feel certain that our individual and collective efforts make a difference in ways we will never fully know on this side of life. Wonderfully, Jesus set us an example to follow in his Way – and offered clear imagery for us disciples…
“…just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:23

Together, year-in and year-out, we join God in serving one another and the community around us. Only together can our various talents and the God-working-within-us factor enable us to witness to the love of God for all of his Creation. Encouraged by the model of St. Francis – we ‘proclaim the Good News of God, and sometimes use words…’

Many of you have found meaning and contentment in life by serving alongside others. At some point, perhaps you can’t pinpoint it, but you found that by investing in something larger than yourself, that your spirit found a resting place. With a smile and thanks to God, we often find ourselves working shoulder-to-shoulder with the most unlikely crew of people… That’s just how the Kingdom of God works…

So yes, it is good and right to celebrate our Cathedral ‘Ohana. These are the very people who will journey with us in the good and difficult days of our lives. I’m thanking God for all of you.

A Reflection on Ascension and the Sunday of Ascensiontide (Part Two)
“Pa`akai a Malamalama” (Salt and Light)
Reflections from the Dean

I’m always struck on Ascension Day by the thought of how confused the apostles must have been! Jesus had been present with them in his earthly ministry, absent (or so it must have seemed) from Good Friday until Easter. Then he was present again during the forty days (of and on it seems). Finally, he was absent again after he ascended. However, as Jesus promised in John’s Gospel we heard last week: “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.” (John 14:16)

Presence, absence, presence, absence, presence… No wonder they were “gazing up toward heaven…” (Acts 1:10) they had been on an emotional roller coaster!

We too experience such moments feast or famine along our spiritual journeys. Many of us have experienced the confusion and the fear which comes when we feel the absence of God from our lives. Yet often those “absences” are but preludes to a deeper experience of the “presence.”

Jesus did not ascend to leave us behind. Nor did he really ascend, it seems to me, (as in the older Collect for this day) “so we may in heart and mind there ascend and with him continually dwell.” (Book of Common Prayer, page 226)
But rather, “Jesus Christ ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things” (“newer” Collect, BCP, page 226). Jesus “ascended” that he might no longer be bound by time and space, but present to his people at all times and in all places.

On this Ascension Day, let us ask God to “give us faith to perceive that, according to his promise, he abides with his Church on earth, even to the end of the ages…”

The Very Rev. Walter Brownridge

Feast of the Ascension

Sung Eucharist on Ascension Day
Thursday, May 29, 5:30 pm

Ascension Day is one of the Principal Prayer Book Feasts, equal in importance to Christmas, Epiphany and Pentecost! The Feast commemorates the ascension of Jesus into heaven (Acts 1:6-11) following his crucifixion and resurrection. The Cathedral will mark this Feast with Choral Evensong on the Eve of the Ascension and a Choral Eucharist on Ascension Day, both sung by the Cathedral Choir.

But that doesn’t just happen on Pentecost, does it? We are invited by this elusive presence of God, this spirit that is as close as our breath but hard to “see.” Was there a time that you can recall recently, when the Holy Spirit transformed you? What was that like? Did other people see it or feel it, too?

June 8. Happy Birthday Church! Pentecost Party. Our last meeting of the year will be a celebration of all the blessings, discoveries and creations that occurred throughout the past year of Godly Play. After a summer vacation, Godly Play will begin in September.

Fr. Michael Lapsley Healing Memories Workshop
Fri. – Sun, Jun. 6-8
Church of the Crossroads

Father Michael Lapsley, born in New Zealand and ordained in Australia, went to South Africa in 1973 as a young Anglican priest. He became chaplain to both black and white students at the very height of apartheid oppression. In 1976 he was elected National University Chaplain. Father Michael began using his public platform to speak out against apartheid and violence against students and was expelled from South Africa.For 16 years as chaplain to the liberation movement in exile and a member of the African National Congress, he traveled the world to mobilize opposition to apartheid. In April 1990, he was sent a letter bomb from South Africa. In the blast, he lost both hands, the sight of one eye, and was severely burned. Accompanied by prayers, love, and support , he began his journey from victim to survivor to victor.

In 1993 he returned to South Africa to become Chaplain of the Trauma Centre for Victims of Violence and Torture in Cape Town. There he devised a Healing of Memories process that created safe spaces where South Africans could begin to work through the psychological, spiritual and emotional effects of the nation’s past. In 1998, he formed the Institute for Healing of Memories. The Institute now works with victims of war, violence, and genocide throughout Africa and around the world.The Institute for Healing of Memories, North America makes this process available to veterans, battered women, prisoners, people recovering from addictions and others seeking healing from loss, trauma, and discrimination.

Ministry from the Heart with The Rev. Martin Smith

In these three sessions, Martin Smith will help us explore the relationship between our experience of intimacy with God and our call to service, outreach and evangelism. Our outgoing lives as Christians can become a set of tasks unless we can experience for ourselves the grace and presence of God as the source of our motivation. Join us for a conversation about the ‘mystical core’ of ministry.

Light for our Path from Monastic Wisdom

In three forums, Martin Smith will look at ways in which monastic spirituality can help us with the questions ‘what does it mean to be an authentic person? What kind of human being does the life of the Gospel enable us to become?’
