What goes on in the mind of a “haole” from the (U.S.) “Deep South” who hears the “call of the Islands” but has no idea how he’s going to make his dream come true? Here’s your chance to experience the thoughts, emotions, hopes and transformation of a Mainland visitor into a Hawaiian! Join us day-by-day on the “Journey to Kona” (click HERE to read daily posts)


(click Fr.JAMES)

We follow the thoughts of Father James, a Russian Orthodox priest heading a thriving church congregation in the farmlands of southern Georgia, just north of Savannah. He delved into spirituality, being human, creating artwork and discovering himself for 23 years in a unique Orthodox monastery known for raising German Shepherd dogs. Eleven years ago he left the monastery on the next leg of his journey which led him to Georgia. In 2004 he reluctantly joined his family members on a trip to Honolulu, Hawaii and has never been the same since!

As you get to know Father James over time, don’t hesitate to contact him by writing a comment in the box below, emailing him directly at Journey2Kona@hotmail.com, or writing him at the following address:

Father James Bohlman
Saint Mary Magdalene Orthodox Mission
1625 Fort Howard Road
Rincon, Georgia 31326

  1. Nice to meet you. I am looking forward to your posts! Thanks for visiting my blog so I could find yours, Father. 🙂

    • Yes, I’m happy to know you! It amazes me how new connections can be made through blogging! I became aware of your blog through Ray & Jenny Wunder in Salt Lake City with their autistic twins. ASD is new to me and I’m surprised by the things I’m learning from reading blogs like Ray’s and yours! Keep the faith!

    • My Dear Arnel !!
      THANK-YOU so much for this wonderful award! Don’t be concerned about the ups and downs of a writer’s cycles…. they are akin to the peaks and troughs of ocean waves and both are necessary! When the sunlight is strong then FLOURISH, and when darkness covers the land then PONDER.
