A VALUABLE RESOURCE for You and All Ministry Units
prepared by Joan Metge in consultation with Māori experts. *
An easy-to-read resource to assist people to learn from the rich imagery from our natural world in the Māori text, as well as from the English, in our New Zealand Prayer Book/He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa. The resource offers new perspectives into familiar truths, enriching our Gospel understanding & worship.
There are helpful guidelines on how and where to introduce use of the Māori text in the liturgy, and the good reasons for doing this. This provides another way of encouraging Anglicans to grow on their bicultural journey through discovering the taonga of te reo Māori, integral to the Christian story of this country, and to our bicultural relationship.
Material from the book may be copied as required.
This book, published by the Bicultural Education Committee, Diocese of Christchurch, is an edited and expanded version of material originally prepared by Joan Metge, in consultation with Māori experts, Revds Maori Marsden, John Kamariera & Hone Kaa; Hepora Young and Shane Jones in the 1990s for the parish of St Peter's, Willis St, Wellington. It has also been used by many other Anglicans throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
Convenient A5 sized, 47 page booklet, price $10.00 (p&p & GST included).

* The title refers to lines on pg. 488 of the Prayer Book about our being reconciled and united in both suffering and hope:
Ka aru mātou i a te Karaiti, [We follow Christ
Tui, tui, tuia mātou, We are bound, bound, bound together,
Tui, tui, tuia ki te ora. bound, bound, bound together into fullness of life.]
