“Is the traditional church sinking in a communication storm?”  
October 2014 BaptistNews.com 
Ah, the days of typewriters, carbon copies, handwritten notes and little stress about whether everyone knew when the church picnic would be. Life for the church secretary wasn’t very complicated in the 1970s, I suspect, and neither was church communication. Read more. (Copy of original work.)

“Five communication mistakes your church is probably making”  
November 2014  BaptistNews.com 
After a combined 15 years as an administrative assistant, communication manager, educator, communication specialist or communication consultant (or any other title sent my way), I’ve had time to reflect on what we’re doing wrong when it comes to effective communication.

Media Ethics and Policy

Unfortunately, thus far, the medical industry has not embraced these opportunities. “Every other major industry in the world has employed industrial quality-control techniques and computers to standardize and improve products and services, a move that has led to continual improvements in available products, quality, efficiency, and cost.

CareNet Counseling Network

“The Best Handshake You Will Ever Give”
October 2011  CareNetCounseling.wordpress.com
Jerry Powell, Director of the Fayetteville Family Life Center, believes that teaching people how to care for military families is an education process – not just with the military personnel and their families, but also with those who interact and engage with them in their communities. And we need to realize that this means all of us. Read more.

Baptist News Global Perspectives

“Beware the Calling”
July 2015  BaptistNews.com
