Telling the stories of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, NZ and Polynesia

Seeking justice for Naboth…

The Old Testament story of Naboth's Vineyard is about a man who refuses to sell his inherited land to the king. So his queen has Naboth stoned, and dogs lick his blood. It's a story missionaries reached for when they tried, and failed, to save the iwi land on which downtown Tauranga is built.

• Naboth's Vineyard: the Reese report
• The day General Synod said sorry - a report
