Could Asbury Lead to Awakening? | Rebekah Lyons and Grant Skeldon
People seem to be waking up. Awake to God’s heart, to hope and to the possibilities that what we’ve read about in days of old could happen again. Asbury University represents a place where the veil became thin and we want to have a conversation about it and what it may mean for all of us. What God is doing in Asbury wasn’t meant to stay in Kentucky, it’s meant to permeate our families, our churches and our homes.
Engage with a special edition podcast where Rebekah Lyons and Grant Skeldon discuss their inspiring and challenging experience visiting Asbury.
Episode 267 | Our Top Moments from 2022
In this episode, Q Ideas president Gabe Lyons reflects on some of the most important moments at our events this year. As the year comes to a close, we've appreciated being able to go back, slow down, and think about some of this year's big ideas. While there are prevailing cultural narratives, as Christians we have a unique place to stand due to our access to eternal truth. May that truth sustain us as we head into the new year.

Episode 266 | The Devices That Form Us: Felicia Wu Song
Technology is forming us. Our longing for relationship makes our devices seem especially alluring, but do they give us what we long for? Moreover, who is technology inspiring us to become? Felicia Wu Song, professor at Westmont University, joins us to talk about these very questions.
This episode is the last episode in our 5 part series on character and virtue.
Episode 265 | Overcoming Disconnection: Todd Hall
In one way or another, we've all experienced pieces of the loneliness epidemic in our nation. While there's a myriad of reasons we can attribute this to, professor and author Todd Hall has a keen insight. Perhaps we're in the way of our own success. We seek information when what we need is relational connection. Join us as we talk with Dr. Hall about connection, relationships, and attachment theory.
This is episode 4/5 in our series on science and virtue.
Episode 264 | Uncovering Your Gifts: Tony Cook
Over the past few years, there's been an explosion in personality theories. Do these theories help us love our neighbor and communities better? Rev. Dr. Tony Cook from Lutheran Hour Ministries, has helped put together a guide to help Christians discern their tangible gifts. Gifts should be used both at work and in the Church, not one or the other and everyone has something to contribute. In this episode, Rev. Dr. Cook talks about how we can better learn and utilitize our gifts for the glory of God.

Episode 263 | Understanding How We Think: Justin L. Barrett
As James K.A. Smith says, "you are what you love." In a similar manner, what you pay attention to forms how you think. Justin Barrett, founder of Blueprint 1543, joins us to talk about how we think and process new ideas. What ideas do we hold that we should keep? How do we discern when we should change our mind? Dr. Barrett explains how we can create a framework for this type of thinking. This episode is part 3 of our 5 part series on science and virtue.
Ep 187 about the book “Reparations”
This episode of Q is the best discussion of the subject of reparations I’ve ever heard. It is also going to be the mostly widely-shared podcast episode in my library. My favorite part of the episode is where Micah corrects an assumption in Gabe’s question that Black people will benefit most from the practice of repair, responding rightly that all believers will benefit from this discussion and work.
Keep Your Mind Sharp
Thought-provoking, challenging in all the best ways, full of content that really inspires you to grow in your faith and life in so many ways.
I depend on the Q podcast for a gentle (and yet sometimes alarming) presentation of Christian thinking and soulful responses.
