Podcast One Hundred and Eleven – Wiremu Tamihana – Māori Prophet and Visionary
Today, I am going to speak about one of the outstanding Māori Christians from the Waikato area. Most of you already know the story of Tarore and her gospel. Wiremu Tamihana is another Christian that deserves wider recognition for his work for the Gospel among both Māori and Pakeha. He is an example of a Māori Christian who sought to be a peacemaker in very troubled times in the Waikato – an embodiment of the verse in the Beatitudes ‘blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God’ (Matthew 5:9). The video clip is a visual tour of the Matamata area including some key dates in Tamihana's life.
