"Legal Pressure Points for Christians in the 21st Century" will examine recent court decisions and issues arising where there is a tension between traditional Christian ethical principles and accepted social norms in 21st century Australia, and how Christians should respond to those tensions. Other speakers at the day long seminar, the "Australia Day Convention" on Monday, January 27, entitled Australia's Future: Christ, the Nation and the State, are the Anglican Dean of Sydney, Phillip Jensen, and the Principal of Moore Theological College, Dr Mark Thompson.
