As storytellers, our objective is to understand the narrative of our culture in order that we engage in it well? Q is an event who’s founder has the vision to inspire the renewal and restoration of culture. In this short Q talk from guest speaker Bryan Coley, he challenges the story-teller not just to engage culture, but to lead culture. I believe this is not only the task for the storyteller but for all who are called to share the greatest hope.
I’ve had the privilege of attending some past Q events, and they have been an inspiration to some of my thinking. My WHY has been informed and shaped by some of what has been shared from their platform. I hope that they will help inspire you too.
Almost every day we are confronted with the division, disagreement, and tension brewing in our country. Our differences are amplified and our empathy diminished. But we have an opportunity to lead with a new posture and to give witness to a better way.
