Time to Advance Good

We are so glad that you chose to invest your Thursday night in the experience of Q Commons Sacramento. As Brian Dowd shared at the end of the evening, we want to be a cross section representation of the CHURCH that is staying curious, thinking well and advancing good. As Nancy Ortberg reminded us, we are leaders following Jesus who in small things have a big impact. We are leaders who, as Ben McBride said, are willing to lean into the awkward conversations with those different than us. As out panelists Ken Cooley, Bonnie Gore and Ed Manansala reminded us, we are so in need of God that our first motion is prayer. The room was electric with conversation, now let’s put it into action.
