Why you should go to Q Commons Memphis
Some really encouraging words about the experience of one of our colleagues at Memphis Teacher Residency (have you seen the Yearbook they released? Read it here!). Read an exerpt of her experience at Q Commons.
For two days, I sat in the War Memorial auditorium in downtown Nashville and heard well-crafted presentations from musicians, theologians, economists, nuero-scientists and politicians who were all working in their areas of influence for the Glory of God and for the good of others. I heard from academics like Brian Fikkert and Anthony Bradley, whose works on poverty and exile had already heavily influenced my thinking about education. I was also introduced to new ideas from writers and thinkers like Shauna Niequist, Paul Lim and Donna Freitas, who’s presentations brought insight into the need to give discriminately, the role of idea-generators to change culture, and the hegemony of hook-up culture on university campuses.
