Trompf University of Sydney Abstract. This article compares ideas about the coming millennium in two culturally different parts of Papua New Guinea: Sek in Madang Province and Kasap in Enga Province. In both areas the Catholic church is historically predominant. Concerns and questions about whether the millennium will be marked by Christ's Second Coming are expressed with equal fervency in both areas, and there has been a transformation from more materialistic interests in cargo to more spiritual hopes of a "good time" that may follow the millennium. In both areas religious news continues to predominate as ways of looking at the world.
