Horizon Christian Fellowship

Sunday, 21 Aug 2005 | Christian, Family, Food, Travel

We attended church at Horizon Christian Fellowship today. This church is part of the Calvary Chapel network and was started through Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego, California where Mike MacIntosh is pastor.

The service is held at a Waikiki Golf Course and the congregation was quite small. The pastor, Francis Kamahele, a native Hawaiian, gave a very interesting and funny sermon that we all enjoyed immensely. I noted that the pastor used an Apple iBook for his notes during the service. It was nice to see how close the members were. A man and wife, members of the church we met that morniing were scheduled to leave for another Island in the next couple of weeks. Pastor Francis asked everyone from the pulpit if they could bring food the following Sunday so they could eat together and send off the couple.

After the service, we talked to chuch members and Pastor Francis for a bit. I asked the pastor about the Hang Loose sign locals make by curling the three middle fingers and raising the thumb and pinky. He said that it isn't technically called hang loose. The locals refer to it as Shaka which means "How you brah? Howzit. How's everything?". When done properly the raised fingers should be bent and not stretched out straight.

Then I asked about good places to eat and he told us about the Rainbow Drive-In, Leonard's Bakery and Ono Hawaiian Foods. We tried the first two and both were winners. We'll have to try the third when we go back to Hawaii. ;D
