"From childhood you have known the sacred writings"

Part of the reason for holding the Theological Hui in Ngati Haua was to allow participants the opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the resting place of one of Ngati Haua's daughters, Tarore, and remember the inspiring story of forgiveness and reconciliation, and spread of the Gospel, that flows from her life and death.

To commemorate the visit and karakia each participant was gifted a Gospel of Luke

Later in the evening, everyone had an opportunity to have questions, handed in over the course of the hui, to be posed to a panel including the Archbishops and some of the Church's younger theologians.

A long day was capped off with a spontaneous skit led by the hui MC, Ano Bryce, delivering lots of laughs and a good message about preparing the way.
