Q 2012 coming to DC

The Q Conference is coming to DC this year, which is exciting for the Church in DC! It will give us a chance to discuss the issues that affect our city, as well as learn from some of the most brilliant and innovative thinkers of our day how to address some of these issues. If you're not familiar with Q, check out their website: http://www.qideas.org/event/dc/about.aspx

Q does awesome work creating dialogue around the Church's role in culture today and in the future, providing a space for discussions that don't happen many other places. As their website says:

Q is a space where church and cultural leaders can learn, dialogue, innovate and collaborate around the important topics shaping the church’s future role in culture. In an intense, fifty-hour experience, Q exposes participants to over thirty presenters on myriad topics. Talkback sessions follow presentations and allow for questions, comments, and responses in a more intimate setting. Our method of learning is simple: exposure, conversation and collaboration. We make an intentional effort to platform the best and the brightest ideas that help advance the common good in our society. By bringing together leaders from the different channels of culture—media, education, politics, arts and entertainment, business, the social sector and the church, we are able to learn from one another, and engage in lively conversation that seldom takes place in other environments. We are driven by the belief that inherent in Christian faithfulness is the responsibility to work towards creating a better world, one that reflects God’s original design and intention. Q is a place leaders can explore what that might look like and how God’s kingdom is showing up in the lives of their peers as they restore through the cultural goods they create and lead.

This conference will definitely be worth attending, and it's in our neighborhood! There will be a lot discussed at this conference pertaining to issues that especially affect the Church in DC, including what I believe will be some helpful dialogue concerning the upcoming presidential elections and the Church's role and response to our current political atmosphere. This also could be a great chance to meet other DC churches and faith leaders, and dialogue about how we can be an even more unified Church in DC in the upcoming years.

I encourage you to visit the website to learn more, and I look forward to hopefully dialoguing with many of you there!

DC Area Church Classifieds

For many, the DC area is a transitory place. Whether people in your congregational family are moving down the block or across the world, changing jobs or doing home improvements, helping people through transitions is a frequent ministry in most of our communities. In addition to many personal helping hands, some have email listserves, and a handful of local congregations have public online classifieds to facilitate the process. Please leave a comment if there are any others not included.
