Sunday Morning (08.01.21):
"Enough"



Pastoral Update from Pastor Scott Landis
July 30, 2021


Aloha Keawala’i ‘ohana

When is “enough” – “enough?” I suppose it depends on what we’re talking about. Grief, pain, money, the pandemic? Sometimes “enough” means we are at our wits end. Other times “enough” is a place of satiety, and we feel blessed that we have everything we need as David attests in Psalm 23.

The Israelites began to panic in the wilderness and worried there would not be enough food to sustain them on their trip to the Promised Land. God promised “enough” would be provided for each day. They simply had to trust and take only what they needed daily. So, what’s it like for you? Are you living in fear of scarcity or abundantly with enough even to spare. Your answer to that makes all the difference in your approach to life.

This week we will learn from the stories of Moses and of Jesus’ as they sought to reassure faithful communities at precarious moments in their lives. I hope you will join us this week for a blessed time of worship either in person (restrictions apply) or by going to our church website (www.keawalai.org) and clicking on the blue Vimeo button to join. We have resumed our livestream service at 10 a.m. HST.

If you are joining us at home, please print out this week’s order of worship and create a sacred space in your home, your own kuahu. 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. You can also still send a check to the church. Mahalo for your generosity and support.

This week we will celebrate the sacrament of communion. If you are worshiping at home, please prepare your communion elements in advance. Those in hale pule will receive the elements from the deacons.

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.

Since so many are returning to live worship, we will no longer offer our Zoom Aloha Hour. Come and join us to talk story after church on the lawn.

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.

Our monthly Sunset Meditation by the Seawall will take place this Sunday at 6:30. Join us for a time of guided meditation based on the scriptures for this week. You can participate in person (please bring a beach or lawn chair) or join on Facebook Live – Keawala`i Group Facebook Page at 6:30. It’s a great way to end the day and begin the new week.

We have reached a very exciting moment in our church’s life. To gather together again feels so good. To have your energy in our hale pule makes a huge difference, but we must do this with caution and respect for the safety of all. We are keeping a close eye on the rapid increase in new cases of Covid and will adjust our worship patterns accordingly. I, again, direct your attention to the expectations and requirements for worship that are being implemented to ensure a meaningful worship experience and everyone’s well-being. I look forward to greeting you on Sunday either in person or on Vimeo. Either way, I know I will sense your spirit when we gather.

Me ke aloha o ke Akua,

Scott Landis, Interim Pastor
