Wikipedia on the term Kahu or Kahuna

Kahuna is a Hawaiian word, defined in the Pukui & Elbert (1986) as a "priest,,
minister, expert in any profession".

Forty different types of kahuna are listed in the book Tales from the Night Rainbow. Kamakau lists more than 20 in the healing professions alone, including for example "Kahuna la'au lapa'au" (an expert in herbal medicine) and "kahuna haha" (an expert in diagnosing illnesses).

E Komo Mai ~ E Nana I Ke Kumu ~ i mo'okuauhau i ta makahiki Oli ~


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

Chinese + Japanese language



was ordained as a minister in August of 2001 by Arthur Pacheco, the pastor of the Church of Eternal Light. I hold the title of “Reverend” and in September of 2001 became licensed to perform weddings in the state of Hawaii.
I’ve been a member of the Church of Eternal Light since 1996. It is a non-denominational organization located in Kaimuki, dedicated to spreading both ancient and modern  spiritual truths. The main reason that I pursued this path to become a minister was so that I could be a part of one of the most important steps in a couple’s life, their wedding day.

Rev Lesch is known in
Honolulu for intimate beach wedding
and frequently performs for many of the
hotel weddings in Waikiki.
 His specialty is  renewal of vows where he works
 with the couple to create a personal ceremony.

And  not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for †
Thine is the kingdom
and the power and the glory, forever and ever.

The Lords Prayer in Hawaiian

E ko makou makua iloko o ka lani, e hoanoia kou inoa. E hiki mai kou aupuni; e malamaia kou makemake ma ka honua nei, e like me ia i malamaia ma ka lani la; E haawi mai ia makou i keia la,

i ai na makou no keia la. E kala mai hoi ia makou i ka makou lawehala ana,

No ka mea, nou ke aupuni, a me ka mana, a me ka hoonaniia, a mau loa aku.


Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon,
where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy

 Don't think that love, to be true, has to be extraordinary.
What is necessary is to continue to love.
How does a lamp burn, if it is not by the
continuous feeding of little drops of oil?
When there is no oil, there is no light.
Dear friends, what are our drops of oil in our lamps?
They are the small things from every day life: the joy, the generosity,
the little good things, the humility and the patience.
 A simple thought for someone else.
Our way to be silent, to listen, to forgive, to speak and to act.
That are the real drops of oil that make our lamps burn vividly our whole life.
Don't look for God far away its not there, god is in you,
 take care of your lamp and you will see."

Mother Teresa



On marriage

But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance
between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond
of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between
the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup but drink not from
one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat
not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous,
but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each
other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain
your hearts.

And stand together yet not too near

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow
not in each other's shadow.

from The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran


Love gives naught but itself and takes
naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be
For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say,
"God is in my heart," but rather, "I am
in the heart of God."

And think not you can direct the course
of love, for love, if it finds you worthy,
directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfill

But if you love and must needs have
desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook
that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding
of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart
and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate
love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the
beloved in your heart and a song of praise
upon your lips.

from The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran
