Published in 1920, the “Hawaiian Annual,” a sort of “Farmer’s Almanac” for Hawaii, made this comment: “More than one historian has related that Chiefess Kapi‘olani was a loyal adherent to her religious faith.”

And in the 1883 book, “Fire Fountains,” author C.F. Gordon-Cummings calls Chiefess Kapi‘olani, “the Hawaiian Elijah.” Gordon-Cummings’ biblical reference (1Kings 18:19-40) is that of Elijah in his loyalty to his God Jehovah.

Loyalty, it has been said, is a lost virtue.

In a door-to-door campaign, Jehovah’s Witnesses will be inviting the public to attend their free 2016 “Remain Loyal to Jehovah!” regional convention July 8-10 at the Edith Kanaka‘ole Multi-Purpose Stadium.

Showing loyalty to kupuna, the doors will open each morning at 8 a.m. for those 65 and older and their caregiver. General admission will follow at 8:15 a.m. The afternoon session each day will conclude before 5 p.m..

The three-day event will feature 49 presentations, each exploring the theme “loyalty.” Additionally, the Witnesses have prepared 35 video segments specifically for the program plus two short films that will be shown July 9 and 10 depicting various facets of loyalty.

Each of the three-day morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos recorded for the convention.

“We strongly believe that loyalty is an essential part of any healthy relationship,” said David A. Semonian, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in Brooklyn, N.Y. “Our convention this year features content that will help people develop stronger bonds with friends, family members and, above all, with God. We are confident that all who attend will enjoy this program.”
