  2. I love what you’re doing guys. It’s fresh, real and seems to me to be very much at the heart of what we mean when we talk about ‘grace’ – which at the end of the day is all there is really I suppose.

    I’m in N Ireland, and part of a tiny little group that aspires to pretty much the same values and ethos …. on the same journey I suppose.

  3. Rick, I’m late on this one, but we love you & are so glad you’re in this with us.

    Ian, so nice to connect with you all the way in N. Ireland, and guess we shouldn’t be surprised that grace is leading us in a similar direction, hey?! Wonderful to hear of your group, thanks for taking the time to write us.

  4. Just meet with Jennifer, one of Q’s leaders, and the energy that she exudes is contagious. And while my Sunday’s are rather full, being a minister myself, I cannot wait to I have a chance to visit with this faith community again! After viewing the video I cannot help but feel them to not only have hearts saturated with the Spirit, but they seem to also be “wide eyed” in their contemporary approach to our ancient traditions.

    Way to go Y’all !

  7. Thanks Heather! We hope to welcome more people to Q including more of our gay brothers and sisters, so we appreciate you helping us to carry the message. It is hard to build trust, given all of the hurt and manipulation done in the name of ‘the church’, but we truly are a simple faith community seeking to find The Way together on equal ground with anyone who wants to join us.

  8. I like this. I figured the Disciples would be up to something — good!

    Peace.

  10. Hello “Q” community. I just wanted to send you something that was meant for the website and bulletin last Sunday, as I’m still smiling and feeling the joy of Jennifer’s ordination ceremony itself. It was also wonderful to meet so many of you in person, and I just wanted to pass this on as a way of letting you know that you all continue to be in Campbell Stones prayers,… and even occasionally they hear about you as part of their sermons 🙂

    Peace, and congratulations again to you Jennifer!

    From this past Sunday service:
    “Just this past Sunday we had the pleasure of witnessing the ordination of Jennifer Watts. This very special event was punctuated at the end by Jennifer serving for the first time at the Table as an ordained minister. I must say that there truly was something special about watching her execute this sacramental practice that is such a core part of our Disciples faith tradition. But, I believe that it was equally powerful that her message spoke to the fact that we, as Disciples of Christ, understand the Table is a place that not only welcomes all who come to it, but also that we are all equal in our qualifications to “serve” at the Table. Such a wonderful message for both “Q” and Campbell Stone communities, and one that should serve as a model for all churches desiring to deliver Christ’s message to the people. This position of the Disciples not only serves to break down the needless hierarchical nature that has seemed to develop in the larger church, it also affords every member of the Body the opportunity to fulfill a sense of service. This does not mean that Disciples tradition undervalues the sacred nature of the table, to the contrary it uplifts that all who look to serve Christ are sacred and sanctified to God.

  11. Hello, I found out about your program through someone I met that is associated with the Pasadena Christian Church, which is apparently starting a Q group. Would it be possible to get more information on the 12-Step aspect of Q? We have a significant number of 12-step groups that meet at our church and I am curious how to translate that into a possible service. We are also one of only 2 ONA congregations in our geographical area so to incorporate all of that into one service would be a great future endeavor too.

  12. Hi Sherian,

    I’m so glad you’re inquiring about Q. Since your message we have posted our basic docs on the website and that should help in understanding a bit more about how the Steps are incorporated.

    There are benefits for those that are already part of the 12 Step movement. We have found that once we are freed from our addiction there is more to our primary purpose beyond staying sober/helping other addicts, for example we have gotten to carry the message to those without identifiable addictions that come to Q experience the power of the 12 steps as a pathway to spiritual awakening. We have also gotten more involved in helping those around us, very similar to the early church. Q is affirming for the LGBTQ community, which is really needed in many cities around the world, and it is a safe place for anyone whose been hurt by the church, and finds a traditional service too triggering.

    I hope this info helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. I have contacted you via email as well because of the late reply.
    Jennifer
