Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

At the recent forum on sustainability held by the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment's office, the realities of the goal and the barriers to moving towards it were aired. Dr Morgan Williams retires this week from his role as the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment.
