Stu shared a moment

We are a predominantly pākehā congregation and we had our benediction translated into te reo around 4 years ago.

We are a predominantly pākehā congregation and we had our benediction translated into te reo around 4 years ago. It's been hard slog to keep saying it week in week out, but we've kept at it.

This week for our Māori language moment, twelve of us had a zoom session with one of our Māori members who talked us through our te reo benediction and explain some of the depth and history of the kupu. Afterwards it became so much more sacred and important to us.

Te hei māori ora!
