Q Conference

This week, the Q talks are taking place in Austin.

Great minds giving presentations “on the topics of the future, the church, the culture and the gospel.” Each with an 18 minute time limit.

Yesterday, they requested that nobody tweet or live blog during the event.  Major bummer for the rest of us.  However, there are still ways for us to get the information.
