RenewNZ is the personal blog of Ewen McQueen. Established in 2012, it is aimed at stimulating thoughtful and considered debate around some of the key issues facing our nation – issues that need to be addressed if we are to see cultural, economic and spiritual renewal in New Zealand.
It also brings forth some of the wonderful stories of faith and courage hidden in our history. Not only because they make great reading, but because our past can help frame our future. And unbeknownst to many New Zealanders, we have a rich cultural and spiritual heritage which, if we look to it, can help us chart a positive way ahead together.
I welcome feedback and comments on all my posts. Because of this there will be comments on this site which do not necessarily reflect my views. However in the interests of free discussion I allow such comments provided they are expressed respectfully and make a genuine attempt at dealing with the issues in a reasoned and intelligent manner. Concise comments are encouraged.
Dear Mr McQueen,
Thank you for your article in the Herald today (1/6/16) It is refreshing to have someone in the media who will talk about the elephant in the room. Keep up the important work you are doing.
