Pandemic Conversations

Pandemic Conversations

At Q Ideas Annual Culture Summit

At Q Ideas, we strive to provide leaders and influencers with a wide range of viewpoints on critical issues of the day. By presenting multiple perspectives, it means participants may not agree with every talk or speaker on our platforms, but that’s the purpose—we want to help Christians see the complexity of each issue so that, whatever your viewpoint, you can engage this cultural moment well.

We are confident the thoughtful leaders who attend our events are wise and discerning enough to hear and process multiple divergent perspectives while ultimately deciding for themselves what they believe. This has been our model for the past 15 years, as we’ve hosted well-rounded discussions on critical topics such as racism and reparations, marijuana, politics, life issues (such as abortion and euthanasia), technology, and more.

This year’s Culture Summit was no different as we engaged four different and sometimes opposing voices on how Christians can think well about the current state of the pandemic. Hear each of their perspectives below
