What happens when a couple of Hawaiian fisherman hit King Kamehameha over the head with a canoe paddle so hard that the paddle breaks?  You get the Law of the Splintered Paddle.


THIS EPISODE’S HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:

  • While on vacation in Hawaii, Markus came across a figure of King Kamehameha at a gift shop.
  • Markus got curious about King Kamehameha, so he did some Google research.
  • King Kamehameha is known for unifying the Hawaiian Islands about two hundred years ago.
  • Markus tells the story of the Law of the Splintered Paddle.
  • The Law of the Splintered Paddle, instituted by King Kamehameha was intended to protect the weak and powerless from predators.
  • The Law of the Splintered Paddle and the way in which it was instituted, are a reflection of shalom—even though King Kamehameha was not a Christian.
  • Where in your life do you see shalom emerging? How can you support it? Are you called to participate in it?
