You’re invited to join this cross country and global event — with people in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and 140-plus cities around the world — that will include a conversation on how we might be part of healing our divided nation.
Almost every day we are confronted with the division, disagreement, and tension brewing in our country. Our differences are amplified and our empathy diminished. But as Christians, we have an opportunity to lead with a new posture and to give witness to a better way. Join with thoughtful Christian influencers for the Q Commons in Perth for an evening of learning and discussion on ‘Healing Our Divided Nation’.
