All are welcome to join us for a workshop on Te Īnoi a te Ariki (The Lord's Prayer), as it has been translated into Te Reo Māori. As you likely know, the Lord's Prayer was not translated word-for-word but concept-for-concept, and this conversation will help unpack some of the richness behind the beautiful concepts, words, and depth in the words of this prayer. We have set aside this time to reflect together on the meaning of the prayer, in Māori, English, and maybe even Aramaic (the regional language that Jesus spoke)… The purpose being: a) to deepen our capacity to pray the prayer b) to appreciate the richness of nuances that come from hearing how the different languages help us express each line of the prayer c) to help those who are tentative about Te Reo Rangatira to become more familiar with the sound and meanings of the prayer in Te Reo Tihou Weepu (Kai Tahu) will be joining us, to add his perspective as a young(ish) fluent speaker of Te Reo Rangatira, who grew up in the Anglican tradition. Tihou now works across Aotearoa mentoring young Māori leaders. He is living in Wellington for a few months, but home for him is in Hokitika, near his tūrangawaewae of Arahura. 2:30pm 7 August 2022 The Garden Room * This workshop will not be live-streamed, but will be video recorded for later distribution.
