NEW YORK (April 5, 2016) — In a world with dizzying religious diversity, taking time to consider ways to enrich communication among religious groups and with the public is important now more than ever before.
Over three days March 31 to April 2, more than 120 communicators from across the religious spectrum gathered in New York City to build “bridges” among faith groups, find “avenues” to new communications skills and discover “intersections” between faith groups at the Religion Communicators Council’s (RCC) annual convention.
To open the conference, the Rev. Dr. James Forbes, minister emeritus of The Riverside Church in New York, urged religion communicators to take God’s love, justice, mercy, and truth that they receive then mix it, write it, video it, print it.” In doing so, each will see the legacy of faith and give it away. “If you do that – give it away – then you’ll be happy,” he said.
