‘Nation under Siege’ impacts Whakatane
Bishop Brian Tamaki’s ‘Nation under Siege’ meeting drew nearly 500 locals to the Memorial Hall in Whakatane last night.
The Bishop told locals that Christian values needed to be restored to politics for the sake of New Zealand families and the next generation.
“This is the most important election of our lifetime. We have got to carefully examine the values and moral convictions of those we elect to govern our nation. The church can no longer remain apolitical – if you vote, then you are political. It’s time for the sleeping giant called the church to wake up”, he said.
On Wednesday ‘Nation under Siege’ comes to Gisborne with a public meeting at the Whare Wananga o Aotearoa Auditorium, 630 Childers Road – Gisborne. The meeting commences at 7.30pm. On Thursday the Bishop visits Napier followed by Lower Hutt on Friday.
