"Occasional Paper — Companions of St Laurence — 1982"- Front Cover Delivered on 5 December 1982 at the 52nd Foundation Festival of the Brotherhood of St Laurence

During the past 10 years there has been a significant change in the values of Australian society. This has probably been caused by a complex mix of events which include the long period of economic boom which ended in the mid-seventies. With that came big advances in technology, producing a confidence in the capacity of human beings not only to manage their own affairs, but to control the world in which we live. This coincided with a period in which the Church lost confidence in its message and ceased to speak with certainty as increasing numbers of people felt that they had no need of belief in God.
