All Saints’ Church, Kapaʻa

When I was in Boy Scouts in Southern California, we would have to pitch camp in all kinds of weather conditions, especially if we happened to be in the mountains or the desert. Night could get surprisingly cold in the desert, depending on the time of year. But the worst was trying to pound in metal tent stakes into rock-hard ground – one time I was using a hammer and the ground was so resistant that the head of the hammer flew off!

Why am I talking about tents on Christmas? Because of the last verse of our Gospel reading from John 1, that says, “The Word took on flesh and stayed with us for a while.” The more usual translations say, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” This word, “dwewlt,” in the original Greek is skēnē, which literally means “tent.” So in other words, Jesus “pitched his tent” or “encamped” among us (John 1:14). This is a very unusual image of Jesus – we’re used to hearing about him as “he Lamb of God, the Light of the World, or the Good Shepherd. But Jesus our Tent? So that got me to thinking – if John the Gospel writer felt it necessary to make this point, then what are the qualities of tents that might inform what John is trying to tell us about the coming of Jesus? There are three main qualities of tents that I think relate to why Jesus came to us on Christmas – the first two are a comfort to us, the last one is challenges us:

  • Protective: The first quality of a tent is pretty basic to any sound structure, that it should be tough enough to protect us from the outside elements of rain, snow, scorching sun, wind, and so forth. This reminds me of my first ever camping trip, with family and friends in the Ozarks in Missouri. Dad had brought some military-issue camping equipment from the Air Force base, and included in the gear was a big canvas tent for all of us to live in – except that it was very hard to set up, especially with all the wind and rain blowing around! Eventually, though, we got there – and it was nice to get to be inside, snuggly and cozy, as the rain and wind blew outside. Jesus, as our tent, came to protect us from the long-lasting effects of sin, death, and separation from God’s love. These things may touch our lives, but they won’t dominate them nor will they have the last word. Jesus came to protect us.

  • Portable: The second quality of tents is actually what gives them the advantage over brick-and-mortar buildings. The big advantage of tents over more strongly-built edifices is that you cannot carry them around witih you. They simply cannot go wherever you want to go. But tents are totally portable – you can attach them to a backpack and have some shelter no matter where you end up. The comfort and good news for us is that Jesus has come to live with us (“Emmanuel,” his nickname meaning “God is with us”), and that he is with us today no matter who we are, where we’ve come from, or where we’re going. Even whenever we travel geographically, we know that Jesus is there to guide us, comfort us, and befriend us.

  • Placeholders: This last one is more a challenge to us than a comfort for us, and bear with me as I explain it. Jesus as our tent is a placeholder for what comes later, a temporary bridge to a grander reality. Jesus came to live with us for a while, but promised us that when he would go back to heaven, we would have the promise of the Holy Spirit in our lives and do even greater works than Jesus. This reminds me of church that I joined in San Diego right after college. I was there for a few weeks when an arsonist burned down the building, so the leadership arranged for a huge circus-style marquee tent to be erected on the adjacent property for the time being, which ended up being more than a year until the new church building was built. As great as the tent was and how helpfully it served us, at some point it gave way to a more permanent structure. The tent was thus a placeholder for the new building. This is the challenging part to us about Jesus as our Great Tent: Jesus came for a time to be born, live among us, suffer, an die in our stead, then God raised him up to his throne in Heaven. Jesus promised his disciples that after him would come the gift of the Holy Spirit – a Counselor, Advocate, Guide, and Enabler – who would fill the disciples and lead them to even greater works than Jesus could do in his limited capacity as one man in one body being in one place at a time. Thus, the Christmas challenge for us is to take up our part to extend Jesus’ work on earth to make where we live now more in line with what Heaven will be like. As our translation today says, “The Word took on flesh and stayed with us for a while.”

This Christmastime, let’s ponder afresh the gift of Jesus to us as our Great Tent – who protects us, is portable with us, and acts as a placeholder so that we can extend Christ’s work of spreading God’s love and peace in this world. Amen.

All Saints' Dance Ministry Hula
December 19, 2021
The All Saints' Dance Ministry, led by Carolyn Morinishi, performed during the 9:30 service on December 19th. Joining Carolyn, Jan, Muriel, Mabel, and Nadine, who performed live, were a host of other dancers who joined virtually. You can see our off-island performers on the monitors behind the live performers in the video below.

From Carolyn:

In 2019, we choreographed a super-simple hula to "Angels from the Realms of Glory." A hula to this song had been taught by Mrs. Punua as part of the Christmas pageant back in the 1960s -- all wearing white -- so we decided to recreate that dance in 2019.

For this year, we decided to keep the same choreography. Instead of live music, we will all dance to the same recorded track, which will enable the live and video dancers' timing to match.

The in person and online congregation were treated to a truly lovely offering of the Dance Ministry. To watch the dance, click below.

The Manifestation of Christ to the Peoples of the Earth
Epiphany is the manifestation of Christ to the peoples of the earth. The winter solstice was kept on Jan. 6 at some places during the first centuries of the Christian Era. In opposition to pagan festivals, Christians chose this day to celebrate the various manifestations, or "epiphanies," of Jesus' divinity. These showings of his divinity included his birth, the coming of the Magi, his baptism, and the Wedding at Cana where he miraculously changed water into wine. The day was called "The Feast of Lights." Celebration of the Son of God replaced celebration of the sun. Baptisms were done, and a season of preparation was instituted. It was later called Advent.

The solstice was kept on Dec. 25 by the fourth century. Jesus' birth was celebrated on this day in both eastern and western churches. The western church commemorated the coming of the Magi on Jan. 6. The eastern church continued to celebrate the Baptism of our Lord and the Wedding at Cana on Jan. 6. In the east the day was called "Theophany" (manifestation of God).

The coming of the Magi is celebrated on the Feast of the Epiphany, Jan. 6, in the Book of Common Prayer. The Baptism of our Lord is celebrated on the First Sunday after the Epiphany.

Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Activist and Apartheid Foe, is Dead at 90

[Religion News Service] Retired Anglican Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu, the man who became synonymous with South Africa’s nonviolent struggle against apartheid, died on Dec. 26 at the age of 90.

Tutu was diagnosed with prostate cancer almost two decades ago.

The feisty spiritual leader of millions of Black and white South Africans seized every opportunity at home and abroad to rail against the racially oppressive regime that stifled his country for decades. His struggles earned him the Nobel Peace Prize and appointment to the leadership of a commission that sought to reveal the truth of apartheid’s atrocities.

“There’s no person on the face of the earth — Nelson Mandela would have been the other — that has had the kind of moral compass and exemplary mandate I think that the archbishop has,” said Alton B. Pollard III, dean of Howard University’s School of Divinity.

In later years, Tutu carried his work for justice into other areas beyond racial reconciliation — from AIDS to poverty to gay rights.

“All, all are God’s children and none, none is ever to be dismissed as rubbish,” he said in 1999 to the “God and Us” class he taught as a visiting professor at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology. “And that’s why you have to be so passionate in your opposition to injustice of any kind.”

Long before South Africa elected its first democratic government in 1994, Tutu dreamed of and spoke fervently about “what it will be like when apartheid goes.”

But there were times in public speeches and in interviews when the cleric doubted whether, after decades of agitating for social justice, he would live to witness the decay of apartheid.

During the 1970s and ’80s, when other Black leaders critical of white majority rule were being violently snuffed out or silenced, Tutu’s prominence in the church made his one of the few Black voices strong enough to resonate around the world.

But at times, not even his stature in the church or powerful international religious connections were enough to keep the government at bay or from confiscating his passport. Protests by the world’s leading clerics, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, came but failed to buffer Tutu from the brutal regime.

Tutu said a disciplined prayer life helped him through apartheid and continued to sustain him decades later.

“I could myself not have survived had I not been buttressed by my spiritual disciplines of prayer, quiet and regular attendance at the Eucharist,” he told Religion News Service in 2011.

His bold protests against racial segregation and public campaigns for international economic sanctions made Tutu a thorn in the side of the South African government. But to many Blacks in the country, Tutu wasn’t radical enough. Some even chided him for being dedicated to crafting a nonviolent resolution with whites for racial reconciliation in South Africa.

Tutu never set out to be a controversial figure or even a priest.

In fact, as a child, Tutu was baptized a Methodist, but he later converted to Anglicanism with the rest of his family in Klerksdorp, South Africa, where he was born. Tutu, the son of a schoolteacher, wanted to become a physician, but with no money or scholarships available, he enrolled in a teacher-training program.

His career as a teacher was short-lived. After resigning from his teaching post in protest of the government’s educational policies toward Blacks, Tutu turned to the priesthood and to the church.

His would be a career of firsts. In 1975 Tutu was named the first Black Anglican dean of Johannesburg and in 1976 he was elected bishop of Lesotho, an independent African country encircled by South Africa. Two years later he became the first Black general secretary of the South African Council of Churches. Tutu used his post as general secretary as a platform to peacefully advance the anti-apartheid movement.

In 1984, the Anglican bishop was teaching in New York on sabbatical when he learned that he won that year’s Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent crusade against apartheid. His fellow Black South Africans bestowed a rapturous welcome on the laureate when he returned home and it was to them Tutu dedicated his prize.

“This award is for you, the 3 1/2 million of our people who have been uprooted and dumped as if you were rubbish,” said Tutu in a speech delivered at the headquarters of the South African Council of Churches.

It was a stellar year for Tutu. Just one month after winning the Nobel Prize, he was elected the first Black Anglican bishop of Johannesburg. There were expectations that Tutu’s episcopacy would squelch his passion and protest. That never happened.

In 1996, a decade after he was elevated to Anglican archbishop of Cape Town and primate of much of southern Africa, Tutu laid aside the staff of his episcopate, but he did not abandon the work that consumed much of his adult life — bringing freedom and healing to a racially fractured South Africa.

Tutu’s quest for a free South Africa put him on the front line of politics and protest, but he often dismissed claims that he had political ambitions. He would respond to the curious by saying: “It just so happens that I am myself black, but the most important thing about me is that I am a Christian leader in South Africa at a critical period in its history. I have been given the ministry of reconciliation.”

Content with being “the priest,” even in the new South Africa, Tutu was determined to maintain what he called a “critical distance” from the government that being “the politician” wouldn’t allow. Said Tutu: “If it is evil, it is evil, and I’m going to tell you so.”

In the mid-1990s, Tutu was chosen to head South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Despite his illness and cancer treatment, Tutu kept watch over the commission as victims, perpetrators, the police and the country’s former president aired the misdeeds of the era he fought against.

As the world watched the commission’s proceedings, television cameras often caught the quick-witted Tutu sobbing audibly over the recounting of some horrible atrocity that was being disclosed.

Years later, he continued to preach about the need for reconciliation and forgiveness.

“(F)orgiving is a gift to the forgiver as well as to the perpetrator,” he told RNS in an interview in 2014, when he co-authored “The Book of Forgiving” with his daughter Mpho Tutu. “As the victim, you offer the gift of your forgiving to the perpetrator who may or may not appropriate the gift but it has been offered and thereby it liberates the victim.”

Tutu was presented with top honors, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 from then-President Barack Obama.

“As a man of the cloth, he has drawn the respect and admiration of a diverse congregation,” reads the medal’s citation. “He helped lead South Africa through a turning point in modern history, and with an unshakeable humility and firm commitment to our common humanity, he helped heal wounds and lay the foundation for a new nation.”

When Tutu was honored four years later with the Templeton Prize, regarded as the most significant award in the field of spirituality and religion, he credited the people of South Africa, as he had with his Nobel win.

“(W)hen you are in a crowd and you stand out from the crowd, it’s usually because you are being carried on the shoulders of others,” he said in 2013.

Tutu was not without his critics, including those who protested commencement speaker invitations from U.S. colleges, in part because of his support of Palestinians and criticism of Israel.

In a 2013 interview with RNS, when the Desmond Tutu Center at Butler University and Christian Theological Seminary was announced, Tutu blamed God for his outspokenness on issues such as gay rights and the Middle East.

“I don’t think, ‘What do I want to do today? I want to speak up on gay rights,’” he said. “No. It’s God catching me by my neck. I wish I could keep quiet about the plight of the Palestinians. I can’t! The God who was there and showed that we should become free is the God described in the Scriptures as the same yesterday, today and forever.”

Vanderbilt Divinity School Dean Emilie Townes said Tutu, with his “refusal to bend to injustice,” became a pastor to the world.

“He has been such a bright light for hope and justice and love for so many of us,” said Townes. “It’s hard to think of a world without him. But one of the things that he taught so many of us is we have to find that bright light within ourselves and to take the work he has begun forward.”

Tutu, who was lauded as the conscience of South Africa, lived a life of moral strength, vision and hope that allowed him to serve his church and his people faithfully and at times with peace and humor even in the face of persecution.

In doing his life’s work — opposing apartheid — Tutu knew the cost of
engagement: “If you are doing God’s work, it’s his job. He will jolly well have to look after you. And no one is indispensable.”

Looking for the light

Kimberly Knowle-Zeller
December 28, 2021

“Mama, sleep with me,” Charlotte calls to me from her bed. Away from the lights of our dining room and the Christmas tree my hands need to search along the bedroom wall to turn on the light. I slide my slippers off and place my glasses on her dresser. On these December nights, the sun set hours ago.

Charlotte’s head pops out from under her blanket and I lay down next to her pulling the covers over my body. We talk about the day, our favorite parts, things that made us sad, the plans for tomorrow, and what I’ll do while she sleeps. She keeps talking between bursts of energy practicing math problems. “Shh,” I rub her back. “It’s time to sleep.”

After a few minutes I hear her breath begin to steady and her body feel still next to mine. I take my own deep breaths giving thanks for my daughter and the day we shared. I pray for her school, teachers, and friends. I marvel that this moment is mine to experience. Sliding out of bed I move as slowly as possible but the bed squeaks and the floor creaks under my feet. Charlotte rustles a bit. There’s no light and I reach my hands forward to search for her dresser. At the door my hand crawls across her books and trinkets grasping for my glasses. I only want to get out of her room before she wakes, but I can’t see in the dark.

My frustration rises when I can’t find my glasses and I’ve inadvertently kicked my slippers away from me. If only it wasn’t so dark. I take a breath and realize there’s no hurry. Pausing in the room I wonder if this is one of the lessons the darkness is teaching me – to slow down. To trust what’s before me. To remember that even in the darkness, I’m not alone.
In this Christmas season –
look to the light of Christ
may we all take a moment to pause
to breathe and give thanks
to settle into the darkness, slowly
savoring what’s before us
and trusting that
we’re never alone.

Maria Grace Tazu Sasamori, priest of the Diocese of Tokyo, has been elected as the first female Bishop in Japan and South East Asia. 

Maria Grace Tazu Sasamori, priest of the Diocese of Tokyo, has been elected as the first female Bishop in Japan and South East Asia. She was elected as the Bishop of Hokkaido at the 80th electoral Synod of the Diocese of Hokkaido. 

She was elected on the 10th ballot with two-thirds of the votes of the houses of clergy and laity on 3 November. She accepted the result on 26 November and became Bishop-elect of the Diocese of Hokkaido on the same day. 

Mandy Marshall, Director for Gender Justice at the Anglican Communion Office, said: “I'm excited and pleased to hear the news of the first female Bishop. This is a real breakthrough for Japan and will be an encouragement to ordained women everywhere but especially in Japan. Bishop-elect Tazu will need our prayers as she steps into a very male space and has the pressure and holds the hopes of Anglican Women in Japan.” 

She will success Bishop Nathaniel Makoto Uematsu, former Primate of the Nippon Sei Ko Kei (The Anglican Communion in Japan). 

The date of her consecration and installation is yet to be determined.
