“We are a community of young adults from Flatirons Church who want to create a space to talk about real things, with real people. We want to ask the hard questions we THINK we can’t ask in church world. Christians (including us) suck at engaging in these hard conversations, but Jesus never ignores them. He meets our questions with hard truth, and big grace. Like him, we want to engage in these hard conversations with leaders who offer challenging truths paired with authenticity and vulnerability. We don’t need another platform for us to talk AT you. Instead, we want to hear FROM you! We hope that you will tune in as we carve out space to ask hard questions, hear challenging truths, learn from wise voices, and listen to your stories; all while keeping it real and not taking ourselves too seriously.”
