This event is hosted by the Hawaii District Acts of Repentance Task Force.
In 1893, the Hawaiian Monarchy was illegally overthrown by a group of businessmen, descendants of missionaries, and soldiers from the United States. Rev. Harcourt W. Peck was part of the armed militia that led the attack and imprisoned the reigning Queen Liliʻuokalani. He went on to re-establish First Methodist Episcopal Church in Honolulu.
As an Act of Repentance, the Hawaii District is hosting a series of conversations about how we can participate in the healing of our islands. The first session is on Sunday, October 2, at 4 p.m. HST on Zoom. We will view and discuss the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) webinar on the “Doctrine of Discovery” and how it relates to Native Hawaiians and our task of repentance.
