Military strategists know the age old wisdom that sometimes the best battle strategy is the one which is never fought at all. As Anabaptists, this approach likely resonates. But what happens when a public issue lands on your doorstep, journalists are calling and you can’t excuse yourself or your church from responding? “ No comment” simply doesn’t work for accusations of criminal wrongdoing, perceived negligence, or human rights violations. We have no choice but to respond. Be ready to participate as this workshop will equip you to move from reacting to a crisis to responding to a critical issue and prepare you to face media interest with purpose and confidence.
