Nashville, TN, June 04, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- In June, the Nashville Religion Communicators Council (RCC) will hear from Larry Hollon of United Methodist Communications who wrote the book We Must Speak: Rethinking How We Communicate About Faith in the 21st Century.
According to a review from Mike McCurry, former White House press secretary, “Larry Hollon addresses the communications crisis in mainline denominations and sounds a call to action for the church: speak out in today's digital culture or risk irrelevance…. Other voices and messages are filling the void, offering superficial entertainment and consumerism as poor substitutes for the good news of the church. By embracing communications ministry, churches can transform their communities, change lives and be the presence of Christ for a hurting world.”
“I think this meeting will be very insightful,” says president of the chapter, Rev. Brian Fesler, “As religion communicators, we are always looking for new ways to propagate our faith and (Hollon’s) book sounds interesting, to say the least.”
The Rev. Larry Hollon is chief executive of United Methodist Communications in Nashville and also serves as publisher of United Methodist News Service. Hollon has traveled to over fifty countries to tell the stories of persons affected by poverty, and he has overseen advertising that significantly raised awareness of The United Methodist Church.
Hollon will speak to RCC members on June 19, 2013 at the United Methodist Communications Office in Nashville.
