Recap on Q Commons Seattle
What an amazing night, of digging deep into difficult discussions, we experienced this past Thursday at 415 Westlake in downtown Seattle. The rain and wind didn't dampen the spirits of those who attended, though the traffic did get us behind by five minutes or so. We had the opportunity to stream in national speakers Ravi Zacharias, Kirsten Powers/ Ross Douthat and Lecrae, but we also heard from local speakers as well. Matt Kaemingk from Christ & Cascadia challenged the generalized notion that Seattle is a post-Christian, secular city, but rather a very spiritual city that needs to hear and experience the Gospel from the Church. Clarence Presley presented his unique way of engaging outside of the walls of the church and his unorthodox journey into discipling a new kind of congregation that meets on the green grass of the football fields in South King County. Finally, we heard from Scott Ellis of World Relief, who challenged us as the body to engage with the refugee crisis. Speaking alongside him was Amy, a high school senior whose family fled crisis in Congo and was embraced by someone in the church and who now is thriving along with her siblings in the U.S.
