Just another day in Paradise... we decided to try the local "church" that was listed as happening in a local elementary school auditorium, but when we got there there was a Kehei Apartment Owners' meeting instead. So we drove to Kahului and caught the sermon there with an animated Pastor Juan Rivera. The church is being renovated and will have a stained glass waterfall above the baptistry-- beautiful!

I watched a fascinating presentation on Christian Zionism, its beginnings and how it has been supported by the likes of Jerry Falwell, Orel Roberts, Tim LaHaye, Hal Lindsey, Jimmy Swaggart, David Wilkinson, Jim Bakker, etc. The DVD series was by thefriendsofsebeel.com

While I had a rest (because it is such a hard life...hehehe) Ed took a drive somewhere... went in and heard an ad hoc organ concert in an old church c.1832 in Wailea. Blessings everyone!

"Everything that is,is freely given by the God of love. All is grace. Light and water, shelter and food, work and free time, children, parents, grandparents, life and death— it is all given to us. Why? So that we can say thanks; thanks to God, thanks to each other, thanks to all and everyone.”
—Henri Nouwen

"In addition to reading ten pages a day of a motivational or inspirational book...listen to a self-improvement CD for at least 15 minutes every day... If you spend that time listening to educational and self-improvement material, you'll have the equivalent of a Ph.D. on any subject you choose in just a few years. That's the Slight Edge." ~Jeff Olson, author of "The Slight Edge: Secret to a Successful Life"
