The HeartBeat

A Message from Pastor Jeff

Re: The Church

Pastor Jeff LilleyKelly Fryer, former Lutheran pastor and author of several books about the church and church life, recently addressed a group of ELCA pastors regarding leadership in the church. Her thoughts were both sobering and wonderfully helpful. Although this space is hardly sufficient to relay the sum of what she and her partner said, a taste of the substance might be valuable to all of us who love and live in the church.

For much of the past 30 years, most churches have adopted a corporate model of management. Dave, one of the presenters at the workshop, admitted that in fact, he had made a pretty good living teaching corporate principles to churches over the past many years. “There is just one problem with the corporate model,” Dave said; “it doesn’t work. The corporate model is based on the basic idea that God has a church, and the church has a mission. Congregations use media and signs and brochures to advertise their services and announce when it might be convenient for guests to visit during worship times.” In addition, each visitor or new member may be viewed with an eye to how they will contribute financially or how they will fill some need the congregation might have. In other words, people are “consumables” that can, and are, “used up” and then replaced with a fresh new model. The church may be more concerned with what the new member can do for the church than what the church can do for the new member. We’ve all been there. Kelly and Dave suggest it might be time to rethink that model.

They begin with an old way of thinking. In Genesis, God is loose in the world doing all sorts of wonderful acts of beauty and creativity. Dave and Kelly suggest that God is still loose in the world doing great and wonderful things. Sometimes those wonderful things happen through the Christian church; sometimes God acts through other means. In this model, God has a mission, and the church must discern how to live out that mission in the world. People are not just consumables, but valuable gifts of God to be treasured, nurtured, fed and sent for the sake of God’s mission. The primary activity of the church is not (in this model) extracting money or talents or perpetuating the organization, but participating joyfully and fully in the mission of God. God is already loose in the world, and our job is to begin to see with new eyes what “God is up to” and join in the fun.

For those of us (including me) who are from the business world and subscribe to the corporate model of church, the challenge Kelly and Dave pose can be very difficult to swallow. We are reluctant to admit that five year plans and corporate projections seldom work in the fluid environment of the church, even though we have decades of data to prove it. We can be annoyed and nervous when initiatives for ministry begin to bubble up because we feel we are losing control of both the process and the outcome. It can be difficult to let go of the control (or at least the illusion of control) that the corporate model gives pastors and councils in order to allow the Spirit to work in and through the congregation. But we do need to recognize that we can’t put the Holy Spirit on a spreadsheet, nor can we capture the mission of God in a business plan. God is loose in the world doing good with us or without us—and maybe in spite of us.

Dave and Kelly suggest a “renewable” and therefore “sustainable” model for the church. Such a model calls us to reform, renew, and reproduce. It calls us to take God’s mission seriously and to discern our part of the mission. It calls us to see the world in God’s abundance and to put away the assumption of scarcity. It introduces a way of doing ministry that calls us into joyful process of ministry that honors both God and people in such a way that the church lives out ministry in partnership with the world rather than in competition with it. You will hear more about this in the coming months, but for the moment I would leave you with this thought: For the first time in some years, many church leaders are beginning to have hope for the future of the church because we are beginning to let go of the church as a corporation and celebrate the mission that God is doing in the world. God is on the loose, and that is good news for all of God’s people!

Aloha,
Pastor Jeff Lilley

All Saints’ Day—November 7

At this year’s All Saints Sunday you will again have the opportunity to remember a deceased loved one by speaking their name and lighting a candle in the worship service during the community prayers. Please contact the church office as soon as possible with names you would like printed in the special bulletin insert that day and join us for this special day of remembrance.

Church Campus Planning Charrette

(In which the parking lot figures prominently)

Are you curious? creative? confounded by uneven pavement surfaces, dusty, treeless landscaping, and klieg-light aesthetics? Then join us for a church campus planning charrette where you can satisfy your curiosity, exercise your creativity, and kick the dirt for inspiration with your fellow congregants.

There are two opportunities to participate: November 6 and/or November 13, 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon, in Isenberg Hall (with a field trip or two thrown in).

The charrette is a group design exercise to develop a landscape and parking plan for the LCH campus. The purpose of a campus landscape plan is to create a space that:

  • Honors the God of creation by expressing our environmental stewardship.
  • Honors the God of love by reflecting our care for our neighbors, our respect for our host culture, and our joy in fellowship.
  • Extends the invitation to all by creating an environment that offers welcome and orientation to the newcomer.
  • Communicates who we are and retains touchstones to our history as a congregation and the history of this place.
  • Inhabits a vision of our future.

We’ll spend some time discussing design principles and objectives. We’ll spend more time with pens in hand and maps on the table developing plans for the campus.

For your homework, a draft of the “Owners’ Project Requirements” is on the LCH website: <www.lchwelcome.org/landscape>.

If you have questions, please contact Jim Niermann through the Church Office (941-2566).

Stewardship Corner graphic

Thanks to everyone who nailed their pledge to the door as part of our Reformation Day celebration or submitted a pledge in another form. It was a real inspiration to see so many of our LCH family answer the call to service. The four of us are really moved by the commitments you made to lift up LCH and our mission in your prayers and to devote your time and talents to our ministries.

Your pledges of time and talent will be passed along to the appropriate group leaders, and your financial pledges will be given to the folks preparing our budget for next year. In addition, you will be receiving a confirmation letter shortly from the financial secretary.

If you were not able to turn in your pledge on October 31, it’s not too late. You can seal your pledge scroll and drop it in the offering plate, send it along to the office, or turn it in using the online pledge form. Just type in <www.lchwelcome.org/stewardship> to get to this year’s stewardship page; choose the “Online Pledge Scroll” link on the left. The page also has links to various stewardship calculators and the form to enroll in or update your account in the Simply Giving electronic funds transfer (EFT) program.

Thank you, again, for bringing flesh to the understanding that, as disciples of the risen Christ, we are stewards.

Your Stewardship Team
Pam Buckley, Karen Fay, Bill Potter, April Smith

Process Thought Forum

Science Knows Best: The Moral Landscape

Fritz FritschelAnother Process in Faith Forum is set for Saturday, November 13, 9:30–11:00 AM at LCH.

Recently, the Pew Research Center reported results of a general religious knowledge survey. Surprising results revealed that self-acclaimed atheists scored better on the survey than members of religious communities. Our November forum will look a review of atheism advocate Sam Harris’ new book, The Moral Landscape, published in the New York Times article, “Science Knows Best.” You can find the article by googling the heading of this article. “Modern Attempts to Reaffirm the Reality of God” is a comparison piece that is available from Fritz. You can receive a copy of that material by speaking to or emailing Fritz. As is our custom, a repeat session will be held on Sunday, November 14, at noon.

If you have any questions or encounter snags, contact to Fritz through the Church Office (941-2566)

What’s New on the LCH Website?

Bill Potter, Webmaster

Bill PotterMajor changes to the LCH website have centered on the stewardship campaign and related new initiatives and people pages for church leaders.

A new Stewardship 2011 page was created with information about current stewardship campaigns and related documents. There is even an online version of this year’s pledge scroll in case you were unable to turn yours in on October 31. The page also contains links to information about the cantor search, the proposal to search for an associate pastor, and the upcoming landscape planning charrette.

With the increased number of people pages for leaders at LCH, I created a general leaders index and as well as separate lists for the Council, our paid staff, music leaders, and Sunday School teachers. Leaders with their own people pages appear with blue links to their pages; others are shown in black. If you don’t have your own page, just email the webmaster to get one set up.

Among the events covered on the Congregational Life page are: the rainy Pau Hana on October 1, the Blessing of the Pets, the OYEA Chili Cook Off, LCH night at KHPR, Children’s Sabbath (with slideshow), and LutherFest (with slideshow). A new profile of Mike Lippert has been added to the “LCH and me” section.

The LCH Staffing Task Force

After examining a range of possibilities, the LCH Staffing Task Force recommends that the congregation consider extending a limited two-year call for an associate pastor. The recommendation arises in large part from the Draft Ministry Plan Goal Statements prepared by the congregation. In the goal statements, many LCH members called for a renewal and expansion of our commitment to Christ’s mission to a larger community. At the same time, there was a strong desire to preserve and enhance the ministry to our own LCH community, growing it in the process. There are many factors involved in such an important call, not the least of which is the necessary financial commitment. The Task Force is aware of this issue and asks the congregation to both prayerfully and carefully keep our recommendation in your hearts as well as your minds.

The Task Force recommendation is only the first step in a process calling for the congregation’s involvement. To facilitate congregational involvement, the website has a form to take questions, comments, suggestions, and/or recommendations from the congregation. Just go to <www.lchwelcome.org/tf>. Task Force members will also be available in the courtyard before and after Sunday morning services and will welcome verbal feedback and written comments via a comment box. Task Force leaders, listed below, can also be reached by phone or email.

If the congregation agrees with the Task Force recommendation and votes to call for an associate pastor, the church council will form a call committee and the call process will begin.

We on the Task Force ask for your prayerful and faithful consideration of our recommendation.

Your Staffing Task Force
Pam Buckley, Mike Formby, and Chuck Huxel

Monteverdi Vespers of 1610

In November, Hawai‘i will join the world in celebrating the 400th anniversary of Claudio Monteverdi’s groundbreaking Vespers of 1610 at two performances; the first on Friday, November 5, at St. Theresa’s Co-Cathedral and the second on Sunday, November 7, at St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Honolulu. A joint presentation by Early Music Hawaii and Abendmusiken Concerts of the Lutheran Church of Honolulu, the early Baroque masterpiece will be directed by Carl Crosier, Cantor, and will feature celebrated early music artists from Hawai‘i and the mainland.

Special guest artists will be The Whole Noyse, a period brass ensemble from San Francisco. The Whole Noyse has performed the Vespers many times before—this year marking the group’s 25th anniversary—and will be performing on modern reproductions of the original 16th century instruments. They are joined by three leading tenors and a theorbo (bass lute) player.

“This is a magnificent composition, bringing together grand choral, orchestral, and solo vocal passages of operatic dimension in a single sacred work for the first time,” says Carl Crosier. “It requires virtuoso performances by experienced early music singers and players. We are fortunate to have many of them here in Hawai‘i, especially among the talented musicians suffering from the Symphony’s bankruptcy.”

Tickets are $35 for preferred seating (front and center) and $25 for general seating and may be purchased from Early Music Hawaii at <www.earlymusichawaii.com> or by calling (808) 729-4485 during business hours.

Friday, November 5, at 7:30 PM
St. Theresa’s Co-Cathedral, 712 N. School Street

Sunday, November 7, at 4:00 PM
St. Andrew’s Cathedral, 229 Queen Emma Square

The performances are sponsored, in part, by Aqua Hotels and Resorts and Hawaiian Airlines.

LCH Property News!

After much prayer and discussion with Pastor Jeff, I have volunteered to be co-chair with Jean-Paul Klingebiel of the LCH Property Committee. With the help of our part time staff members, Alex and Gaylen, the staff of Our Redeemer Preschool, and 3D Landscaping, we will take responsibility for coordinating the care of our church home.

I have three years experience as a full-time church sexton for the Parish of St. Clement, our Episcopal neighbors on the corner of Makiki and Wilder. I currently serve as the facilitator of the LCH Mutual Ministry Team and am a long term member of the Stewardship Committee. You will find me at the 8:00 am service playing the flute and at Aloha Jam strumming my purple ‘ukulele.

We will be developing some new approaches for the stewardship of our campus and we invite you to participate! If you have a gift or passion for helping to maintain our facilities, please contact me, Jean-Paul, or Pastor Jeff and let us know of your interest.

In Christ’s Aloha,
April Smith
