Pillars of Faith - WYD Banners

"Pillars of Faith"
Banners at WYD
banners at world youth day 2008

During World Youth Day, the streets of Sydney were lined with these banners. I got this photo at Darling Harbour - right along the side of the water these flags were flying high in the air. They made a great subject for a photo - the foremost banners are receding into the picture, and you can even see a few more standing straight in the distance.

Now that the WYD activities are starting to finish up, it's time to look at "Where to from here?" The experience of the week is one to treasure, but also one to move forward from. So far we've had meetings where young people shared their experiences from WYD, and joined together again in song and worship. Some people have also started organising youth groups and ongoing plans, so that we can keep the spirit alive. Already people are noticing that those who went to WYD have been much more joyful and friendly since they returned, and that it has spread to others as well. It's really been an awakening for all of us, young and old alike, to reconsider our life's mission and our interaction with friends and family.

This photo taken with the Fujifilm S9600 digital camera.It is one of a series of photos commemorating the occasion of World Youth Day Sydney 2008.


  1. Nice photo :)
    The 'where to from here' idea really rings true- its getting hard to remember to apply WYD to my everyday life after such a high!

    Did you know that there is a 50-day reunion for wyd happening online on I reckon you should all sign up, its pretty awesome that we can connect again 50-days after the event...

  2. Hi Anna,

    Glad you could relate to this post, hopefully you'll be able to keep the WYD spirit with you always. I have checked out that 50-day reunion, it looks good and I'll try to get on.

    God Bless,
