Civil Public Discourse

At the recent Q Commons Sacramento on October 13, 2016, the issue of civil public discourse was addressed in a panel discussion moderated by ACTS Group director Jeff Kreiser. Councilwoman Bonnie Gore, Superintendent Ed Manansala and Assemblyman Ken Cooley talked about how they approach the challenges they face in public service in the midst of a contentious cultural environment. You will be encouraged as you hear from these significantly positioned public leaders in how their faith guides them in their work, their leadership and how they engage in public discourse.

How Should Christians Think About Voting?

In just one week, a new president will be elected as well as many local and statewide offices. Diverse Christian voices are advocating for very different kinds of candidates. In the national Q broadcast, Kirsten Powers and Ross Douthat were interviewed by Gabe Lyons in terms of how--if at all--should faith inform our political involvement? Is there a mandate that all Christians vote? How can we disagree well with those we love most? Listen in to the conversation. You may nod in agreement or shake your head wondering how they could say something like that, but it is a good example of the commitment of Q to bring different voices together to address questions like these.
