My Emerging Theology

  • Byron Rangiwai

Abstract

My theology is informed by my identity and upbringing. The pepeha above triangulates my multiple connections to land, mountains, rivers, ancestors, hapū, and iwi. My theology begins with the creation of the universe. The Māori creation story begins with Te Kore. However, in some traditions, the creation process, which ultimately starts with Te Kore, is initiated by Io, the Supreme Creator who has many names. The term Te Kore is often compared with the biblical notion of the void, the nothingness. However, Mikaere (2011) argues that far from being empty, Te Kore is actually a state of endless potential.
