Bailey joins Gabe Lyons to reflect on our recent Q Session featuring ten talks on this one topic. David shares what stuck out the most to him from this live event, and he offers some hopeful, practical and productive ways we can continue to pursue racial justice this week, this year and over the next decade.

John Kingston joins Gabe Lyons for a candid, passionate and hopeful conversation about our current cultural moment and the future of America. A lawyer by training and a businessman by experience, John is a social entrepreneur at the forefront of a new campaign called American Awakening. Kingston first gained national attention in the 2016 and 2018 political cycles, with innovative and inclusive campaigns positioned at the extremes of American politics. With the core of his team, John later launched American Awakening, a campaign for the soul of America. He shares the heart behind this initiative, what we can learn from our current season, and how we can engage in awakening together.
Even before the pandemic, our culture felt increasingly complex and disruptive, leaving many pastors and church leaders unsure how to see clearly, lead confidently and engage effectively.

Barna president David Kinnaman introduced us to this idea in a talk he gave at the Q 2020 Virtual Summit. In today’s podcast, David Kinnaman revisits the talk he gave at the Q 2020 Virtual Summit and goes deeper, updating us on the latest insights his team is learning.
