Archbishop Donald Tamihere said it best, last October,
when he reminded us of the importance of telling story...
"When we tell stories of origin and identity, of inspiration and purpose - we arrive at moments of unity. we arrive at moments of togetherness, because we're hearing your story and my story.
"That's why it's so important that.... we take the time to listen to the stories that need to be told, in all of their honest and in all of their truthfulness. But also, in a manner that leaves us something quite special as a result of hearing [them]."
