Difficult conversations in complex and changing times
Gabe & Rebekah Lyons are Directors of US-based Christian media organisation Q-Ideas ; helping people consider how to stay curious, think well and advance good. In the midst of a global pandemic with increasing racial tensions, political unrest and a cultural redefining that challenge our understanding of gender and sexual ethics, Q recently presented their annual conference seeing over 10,000 participate in the event. Gabe and Rebekah will help us consider when it is appropriate to enter into the debates of our time, and when to remain silent. They will also provide some helpful insights in how Christian communicators can engage well.

Can anyone see? Is anyone listening?
Are we just speaking to ourselves or worse still, within a vacuum where our voice is no longer heard? Like the lighthouses of old - where their warnings were illuminating danger both visually and audibly, Andy will help us consider how we can have the same effect, bringing dangers to light and help lead people home.

WEDNESDAY 1st SEPTEMBER Livestream Only

Why are conspiracy theories so compelling and how do we help those we influence distinguish between truth and fallacy?
Conspiracy theories and their hypotheses that contradict the mainstream explanation of historical or current events are rampant. And todays modern media platforms are the perfect ecosystems to proliferate them with such speed that it is almost impossible to tell truth from lies. In the process, conspiracy theories are tearing relationships between friends and families apart.
This is where our future and the future of trust in media organisations may hang in the balance. Sheridan will unpack the reasons why it is vital for Christian communicators and content creators to engage well in this conversation and speak with authority using verifiable facts.

Join Anita Savage, John Sandeman, and Luke Weston for a live Q&A following Sheridan's session.
