Theme:- Church Quo Vadis?
What will the future Church in Europe look like and what does that mean for us today?
A number of years ago, then-Cardinal Josef Ratzinger wrote: “The church will become small and will have to start afresh more or less from the beginning... She will lose... social privileges... and make bigger demands on her members... But when the trial of this sifting is past, a great power will flow from a more spiritualized and simplified Church... Men in a totally planned world will find themselves unspeakably lonely... Then they will discover the little flock of believers as... an answer for which they have always been searching in secret.”
The Church in every era faces the dual challenges of fidelity to the two-thousand-year-old Gospel message and at the same time adapting her emphases and methodologies to fulfill the heartfelt longings of people.
We believe that if the Church is to thrive in this new environment, we will need a renewed commitment to (1) forming true disciples of Jesus, (2) empowering young leaders, (3) building a stronger sense of community among God’s people and (3) engaging the secular world at the point of need.
These will be some of the themes covered in the 2014 RELaY leadership conference in Malta. Come and join us.
