45 Ways to Encounter God Posters
Are you looking for fresh ways to encounter God and incorporate Te Reo Māori in the everyday? Then check out our new bilingual prayer resource!
45 Ways to Encounter God | 45 Ēnei Ara ki te Atua is our collaborative, bilingual project that began with our Salvation Army Women's Ministries Facebook community (come join us!). We asked our sisterhood for the best ways they found to connect with God. We partnered with The Salvation Army Māori Ministries to create this free reflective poster pair with all the ideas - in both English and Te Reo Māori.
A special thanks to our WM artist and Salvationist Crystal Anniss for her beautiful illustrations. Download the file at the bottom of the page!
Why is biculturalism important to us?
The Salvation Army in Aotearoa is blessed with a rich history of Māori Salvationists and influences, and our nation's biculturalism is thanks to our Māori forebearers - the indigneous people of New Zealand. WM treats New Zealand's commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The Treaty of Waitangi) and The Salvation Army's commitment to biculturalism as a binding oath.
We long for ways to connect with Te Reo Māori, and to rediscover the art of listening to the Spirit of God placed in Te Ao Māori (the Māori world). We want you to be able to connect with God in fresh and unexpected ways - sometimes in the little everyday acts of living and being. This is the best of both worlds!
