Communication principles that Wisely Enhance Engagement
The Global Connections Muslim World Forum meeting on Wednesday 1 March 2017, will look at further issues of concern to those involved in mission and ministry in the Muslim World ...
“The single greatest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place” — George Bernard Shaw. Is the message getting across? Is it the intended message? And who is getting the message - Muslims, agencies, recruits, supporters, donors, ...? Is it the intended recipients? Do we have to use different mediums for different generations? Are we too paranoid about security? Can we be sure of keeping anything secret any-more?
While this is a moment of tremendous upheaval in the Muslim world, there are also unprecedented opportunities for ministry. Widespread disillusionment with Islam opens doors for engagement, but news of these developments can be disseminated only with bold caution. How do we communicate these opportunities without compromising people, places or projects?
A range of panellists will stimulate our discussions using examples drawn from the Middle East, Iran and Turkey and elsewhere.
The meeting starts with refreshments (tea and coffee) at 11:30am and finishes at 4:00pm.
The cost is £15 to people from GC member agencies and churches. Cost for non GC members is £45. Drinks are included in the price but please bring your own lunch.
