Bible readings for today
Liturgical Colour: GREEN
God of nations,
help us to reflect and share
the goodness that surrounds us.
Help us to win justice for poor and rich alike,
and bring trust and friendship
to all our different races;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
E te Atua o ngā iwi katoa,
āwhinatia mātou ki te whakaata ki te tohatoha
hoki i ngā painga e karapoti nei i a mātou.
Āwhinatia mātou kia tohe kia riro mai ai te tika mō te rawakore,
whai rawa rānei, kia noho ko te whakapono me
te whanaungatanga ki waenga i ngā iwi katoa;
ko Īhu Karaiti tō mātou Ariki me tō mātou Kaiwhakaora.
Ceasar's Tax (Matthew 22:15-22)
“So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”
Tikanga Youth Sunday
Three Tikanga Youth Sunday is the closest Sunday to the 19th of October every year and it is dedicated to celebrating youth in the three Tikanga of the Anglican Church throughout Aotearoa and Polynesia. On this day we remember Tarore of Waharoa, a young girl who helped to spread the Gospel throughout Aotearoa.
