A word of welcome - Greg Morgan

Nau mai, haere mai e te whānau.

Thank you for being open to worship and connection even though we are in different places and taking part at different times. Think how this is stretching church – right into our lives at home, throughout the day or beyond Sunday.
I don’t imagine any of us believes that God is locked up in just church buildings or one faith tradition. Now see! The church is again brought to meet the Spirit in each of us. For there is limitless God: where we are, wherever others are. Take some time for yourself now. Remember that we are thinking of you and that we all appreciate being thought about.

Let us accept the blessing already given to us.
In life itself.
Let us remember that blessing is not exclusive. God blesses all creation just by being God, the realm of all that is and of possibilities unfolding.

Namaste: Spirit in me meets Spirit in you.
