Are you keen to do more for the family than fight same-sex marriage and sex education? Are you interested in what’s going on in the background — marriage trends, families and the economy, education, health and welfare policies, the media — and how you can work effectively to bring about wholesome change?

If so there’s a conference on in Sydney in just six weeks time that is just made for you. Attention Aussies and Kiwis! — The Sydney World Congress of Families is a very special opportunity for you and there are still concession rates available, says chief organiser Mary-Louise Fowler. Plus you a get a little break in one the world’s most popular cities.

As well as the Early Bird Discount, MercatorNet readers and their friends can get a further 20% off by using a special discount code when registering: WCF01 and WCF0S (for your spouse)

Further, for Kiwis (or people anywhere outside Australia) you will go in the draw to enjoy a hosted holiday in one of three great locations…it is all on the website but book soon to get in the draw.

Mrs Fowler — a fantastic lady who on and off for the past year has beaten a trail between the family farm (situated 400kms west of Sydney) and meetings in the big smoke, and had to train her farmer husband in the fine art of heating frozen meals, all to get this event off the ground — and her team have gone to great lengths to attract a star-studded list of keynote speakers and supporting talent to this first conference of its kind in the Australasia region.

They include Professor W Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia, Dr Ted Baehr of the US Christian Film and Television Commission, and Dr Miriam Grossman, physician and author of You’re Teaching My Child What? — a courageous critique of the sex education industry.

All it needs now is lots more people from Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere to roll up and make the most of this unique opportunity to listen, network, enjoy and go home enthused.

PS: The congress includes the international premier of Return to the Hiding Place, a powerful sequel to the famous movie about Corrie ten Boom’s defiance of the Nazis in occupied Holland.
