Keawala'i Congregational Church

Went to church. Didn't know it would be largely in Hawaian. The building was erected in 1855, and the congregation that erected that church was founded in 1832. More images and some sound later.

The altar had a plain wooden cross with a white lei on it.

Added on Wednesday, because I was too tired to blog for a couple of days:

Some of the sound of the service. After some piano, people sing the doxology in Hawaiian. I found these words online; I can check them against the program or hymnal later if that seems important to
Ho'onani ka makua mau
ke keiki me ka 'uhane no
ke akua mau ho'omaika'i pu
ko keia ao, ko kela ao

SO sorry I woke you up at 3 am! I've been so crazy busy I haven't read your blog lately, and I should have checked there first to find out where you were. No crisis you need to call about, but of course I'd love to talk to you if you have time in your relaxation schedule ;-)
