Conversations on the Common Good | Q Washington DC Round-up
Where do you hear discussions on Humility, Power, and crack-houses-turned-coffee-shop-churches in gilded halls of grandeur? At the 5th anniversary of the Q gathering at Q Washington, D.C.. We kicked off the celebration with a free live stream during the first day, which you can watch
. Day Two was full of provocative presentations on racial justice in our legal system, trauma as a place of service, the role of tradition and imagination in the future of the church, and others. Over the course of two and a half days, more than 700 cultural leaders were exposed to challenging conversations. Keep your eyes open for the fruits of these labors.
