Kamehameha Schools has created a series of Hawaiian-focused devotionals for Advent, to honor the deep Christian faith of our founder Princess Pauahi. The devotionals were designed to be used by staffers, students and others to celebrate the coming of Christmas, so please feel free to share them.
ʻO nā kānaka i hele ma ka pouli, E ʻike auaneʻi lākou i ka mālamalama nui; ʻO ka poʻe i noho ma ka ʻāina o ke aka o ka make, E ʻalohi mai auaneʻi ka mālamalama ma luna o lākou. No ka mea, ua hānau ʻia mai, he keiki no kākou, No kākou i hāʻawi ʻia mai ai, he keiki kāne, Ma luna o kona poʻohiwi ke aupuni; a e kapa ʻia kona inoa, ʻo Kupaianaha, ʻO Kākāʻōlelo, ʻo Keakuamana, ʻO Kamakuamauloa, ʻo Kealiʻiokamalu. ʻAʻole e pau ka māhuahua ʻana o kona aupuni, a me ka malu; Ma ka noho aliʻi o Dāvida ia, A ma kona aupuni nō hoʻi, E hoʻāla hou ia mea, a e hoʻokūpaʻa iā ia, Me ka hoʻoponopono, a me ka maikaʻi, Mai kēia wā aku, a i ke ao pau ʻole. Na ka ikaika o Iēhova o nā kaua e hana i kēia.
Isaia 9:2, 6-7
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
Isaiah 9:2, 6-7

Keiki are remarkable teachers born with the DNA of our Creator who is our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. We are called to bring these Jesus traits into our homes, our classrooms, our workplaces and our communities. We are called to guide those who are lost, to be courageous for those who are weak. We are called to be fountains of eternal hope for those needing encouragement and peacemakers in a world that needs unity. Children can guide our hearts to be mindful of people in need when they raise their hands up to be held. When they begin to move independently, they demonstrate boldness. When children giggle, they reveal the wonder of God in their eyes, filling our hearts with eternal joy. When they lay asleep, we see the heavenly peace that conquers worry. All glory to Jesus, the righteous Christ Child and Savior King.

The duty of a good government is to lead its people out of darkness and to serve its people with an emphasis on living a peaceful life in a land filled with light. This is made possible through our Savior Jesus Christ. What would the influence of God’s word be like in global governments? Imagine leaders who lean on the wisdom of God to govern nobly, regardless of all the intrusions of dishonest people who may disrupt peace. The Prince of Peace himself will, and shall have the government upon his shoulders, carrying the weight of the needs of all. Jesus will always be my King of kings, Lord of lords, He is my leader, and I will follow him anywhere. He is the perfect man of humanity and is the fully divine son of God. Christ’s legacy of love will inspire good leaders to be bright lights in times of darkness.
