Is faith simply a matter of the heart? Is it little more than private opinion with no bearing on the real-world? Is the notion of 'right' and 'wrong' an oxymoron, giving way to 'perspectives' and 'progressive thinking' as so many movies, books, the media, politicians et al hold? Does science or government or other hold sway for answers to all of life's questions? Could our churches and schools do a better job of equipping believers to bring faith to a world that fights it? Will the Christian faith survive unprecedented times of secular hostility? Penultimately, when the Son of God comes again, will He find faith on earth?
Spirit in the City is one of Australia’s premier Christian conferences bringing together international and local leaders to tackle the big questions facing faith, culture and public affairs.
To the big questions of life, the conference says a resounding - yes, that faith matters. YES, with Mary, the Mother of God, in obedience to God, to be fully committed to bringing Christ to the world. YES, to be beacons of faith, hope and charity to humanity that, however unknowingly, hungers for holiness and true flourishing.
Spirit in the City 2017, held on October 7th 2017, is consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima and the Feast of the Rosary.
