The HeartBeat

A Message from Pastor Jeff

Zechariah’s Song

And you my child, will be called the prophet of the most high; for you will go before the Lord and prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to God’s people by the forgiveness of their sins. By the tender mercies of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
—Luke 1:76–79

Pastor Jeff LilleyZechariah’s song is a wonderfully familiar and gracious text that seems most appropriate to read as we begin our Advent season. In the Gospel of Luke, Zechariah is filled with the Holy Spirit and sings this song ending a long period of silence. When we hear the song in scripture, it is difficult to tell whether Zechariah is singing about his newborn son or about Jesus whose birth follows immediately on the heals of this poem! But what is clear is that Zechariah sees a new world unfolding through God’s unexpected gift of a child, born to a poor young woman.

As we enter Advent, do we share Zechariah’s vision, hopefulness, and joyful resolve? Are we looking forward to justice, healing, and a new world, or are we satisfied with the state of the cosmos? I wonder, this Advent, what God might have in store for us that we cannot find in a store. Can we proclaim with Zechariah’s bold voice that God has not abandoned what God made? Can we sing a song of vision and hope? The madness of Advent is that it announces with certainty the very thing we are pressured to be unsure of in this broken world—that God is Immanuel. God is with us. For all our brokenness and imperfection God still chooses to come to us again and again in love. It may be that we fight the notion of God with our apathy, ignorance, mean spiritedness, bigotry, foolish suppositions, or petty crassness, but God still comes. Our worship may be silly or pretentious, our prayer self-centered or in odd form, our kindness to each other tarnished and we still make war, but God still comes. Whether we are busy, over-scheduled, hopeless, distracted, joyous, fulfilled, faithful,or peace-filled, God still comes.

And God is still raising up prophets who do not wait for some far off future but work now to bring the vision of the new kingdom. They stand against policies that marginalize the powerless and guide our feet to the way of peace. They raise up a voice so that the weak may be emboldened, and they gently encourage those of us who are ill equipped to face the troubles of life head on. These prophets write music and sing songs that lift us out of darkness into light. They care for the hungry and the houseless, and they pray for those who are the least and greatest in our midst.

We do share Zechariah’s vision in our church and in our congregation, though we might not always be aware of it. Through the ministries God has set us to, we have the privilege of being a part of God’s coming into the world each and every day. The dawn is indeed breaking on this new day in Advent, and the body of Christ proclaims again and again that God is indeed with us.

Aloha,
Pastor Jeff Lilley

LCH Adopts GSA Hawai‘i

Individuals and groups at Lutheran Church of Honolulu are serving community youth in a new and important way by sponsoring local chapters of Gay Straight Alliance in area high schools. Hawai‘i Gay Straight Alliance is an organization dedicated to supporting young people in Hawai‘i’s schools by promoting tolerance and acceptance. Each school club creates its own activities and events and the sponsorship funds many of those activities.

LCH’s own Mary Magdalene Society, along with seven individuals, have donated sufficient funds to sponsor four GSAs in local schools. LCH sponsors GSA Chapters at Kamehameha Schools, Farrington High School, Maui High School, and Kalani High School. The LCH logo will appear on the GSA chapter’s website. GSA Hawai‘i director Andrew Robels was surprised and pleased to see a faith community so dedicated to the dignity of gay, lesbian, and transgendered youth. He said in an email, “I never thought I would like a church this much!”

Thank you to our donors Peter Lee, Chuck Huxel and Nan Wond, Mike Formby, the Lilley family, Mary-Jo Estes, and our Mary Magdalene Society at Lutheran Church of Honolulu.

Holy Listening

Pastor Angela FreemanAs 2012 unfolds and a new year begins, I thought it a good time to talk about another dimension of ministry and our lives as people of faith. That dimension is quiet, prayer, reflection, and spiritual companioning of another. The reason I say perhaps it is another dimension is that often times we are so busy living out and acting on our faith that we don’t take the time to reflect on our actions or to quietly just “be” with God.

Some folks have discovered that part of my training has been in the practice of Spiritual Direction and Spiritual Formation. I’m going to attempt to describe some of what this means and perhaps demystify any thoughts or ideas that spiritual direction, or the practice of holy listening, is some super special or magical fancy thing.

Spiritual direction is also referred to as spiritual friendship, companioning, or listening. The main role of the director is simple: It is one of listening and walking alongside someone. The director listens as together the individuals explore the inner workings of what God might be doing. There’s no magic or perfect formula for a good spiritual direction session. Sometimes it might even feel like you’re sitting down with a good trusted friend.

The practice of spiritual direction is not a substitute for counseling or professional therapy. There are many reasons that one would need the help of a medical professional, and often times the care needed does overlap with spiritual needs and issues, however, a spiritual director is not a trained therapist. Rather, he or she tends to and cares for the needs of the soul and one’s spiritual life—sometimes working alongside other caregivers.

One of the beauties of being the directee (the one receiving the gift of another listening to them and only them) is just that—quality time and unconditional listening just for him or herself. Undivided attention of a trusted companion is a rare gift these days. The directee/director relationship is not a mutual friendship though. The director acts as the host and the directee the guest. Hospitality to the directee is the gift of the director’s time— the gift of self for the genuine care of the other. The directee is not required to spiritually care for the director or meet any needs of the director.

You might be wondering, “What are the benefits of receiving spiritual direction?” The first benefit is simply the gift of having a companion along the journey of faith, walking with you through the ups and downs of the inner workings of your soul. Also, a director can offer suggestions for new ways of exploring your faith or introduce you to practices to deepen prayer life. The director also often asks important questions that stem out of the listening which allow you to perhaps think differently about something or help you to wonder in a new way about what God is doing in your life. And, a director can be a trusted companion who, when it is appropriate, challenges you and hopefully helps you to grow and mature in faith toward God.

My hope for each one of us as the new year unfolds is that we’ll take time—whether it be with a director, another trusted spiritual friend, or alone in the quiet with God. May your Christmas season and your new year be filled with blessing and God’s grace. May you have moments of deep listening that help to fuel your active lives.

(If you are interested in learning more or exploring direction for yourself, feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to have a conversation with you. Sometimes just wondering about something can be a little tug or nudge from God.)

Yours on the journey,
Pastor Angela Freeman

What’s New on the LCH Website?

Bill Potter, Webmaster

Bill PotterNovember was a fairly quiet month on the LCH website. Of course, there were the regular updates of Sunday sermons and children’s conversations, the list of music and readings for Sunday worship services, issues of The HeartBeat the E-News, and documents from meetings of the Church Council. However, except for those usual updates, there were only a few other changes to the site.

At the beginning of the month, materials for the 2013 stewardship campaign were added to the Congregational Life section. These pages include the letter distributed on Reformation Sunday, a handout with all ten scriptures discussed in the Temple Talks (PDF) leading up to that day, and copies of both commitment cards for time and talent (PDF) as well as treasure. There are also links to the three stewardship calculators.

Other changes mostly revolved around the new Evening Prayer service on the first and third Sundays of the month and the Exploring Boundaries series on the third Sunday. The Worship page was updated with information about the service, and a picture was added later. In addition, the time for Evening Prayers was added to the schedules of worship services on the Home and Worship pages. A page describing the Exploring Boundaries was added to the Congregational Life section. This page lists the topics through next May and gives some information about the scheduled speakers. Following the first presentation on November 18, photos for the light meal, the presentation, and worship were added to the LCH Facebook page.

Celebrating Service

Miss Peggy as “Mary Merlot” at this year’s Lutherfest.

The church council of LCH has decided to begin a new tradition. As a means to celebrate all of the ways that God is working through LCH, the council is going to highlight a different person (or persons) each month that is helping serve in LCH ministry. These folks are great witnesses to service and faithful witness.

For this month’s selection...meet Miss Peggy! Peggy Anderson has been an active member of LCH for many years. In fact, if you’re semi-new here, she might be the first person you met when you came in the doors. One of Peggy’s gifts that she offers is her warm welcome and hospitality. Over the years, Peggy has done a variety of things to bring joy and share God’s love. She has arranged golfing trips, offered swim lessons, participated in the AIDS Walk, given rides, and entertained with song and smile as Mary Merlot. She has also served faithfully with One Pot One Hope and with IHS for many years. Thank you, Ms. Peggy for all you do!

With thanks,
LCH Council
