spirituality and aotearoa new zealand

Just been phone interviewed by the NZ Herald on the general topic of spirituality in New Zealand;
are we more or less spiritual as a society? is going to a Crusaders rugby game a “spiritual moment”? is modern spirituality just pampering? what does this mean for churches
The article is due out New Years Eve, so it might be worth keeping an eye out for.

  1. Depends on what you mean by “spiritual” moment. I guess it would be if I went and then watched the Hurricanes beat them at Lancaster Park (sorry, Jade Stadium) 🙂

    That’d come pretty close to an ecstatic moment – The divine touching Earth.

  2. That would be almost as rare and miraculous as the virgin bith.

  3. Come on. It’s the ‘Canes we’re talking about here, not the Chiefs.

  4. AAAAAAAAArgh. Now that was a low blow Stephen! The “Chiefs” are dearest to God’s heart 😉

  5. Do you think the meek will inherit the Ranfurly Shield?

    That’d be terrible! It’d put Auckland out of contention for all eternity.
