What do people of vastly different faiths and backgrounds truly have in common? How can they discuss differences and walk away friends? This was the topic of discussion for the most recent meeting of the Religion Communicators Council, a group of religious communications professionals who meet monthly.
The Religion Communicators Council (RCC) is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations. The Nashville Chapter recently heard from Kalinda Fisher, who founded the Great Reset.
The Great Reset is what Fisher dubs a series of open, heart-felt conversations around difficult topics that lead to enduring friendships between even the most disparate peoples. The series of conversations began in Fishers home a year ago, and has now spread to more than five other states.
The meeting took place in early March at United Methodist Communications on 12th Avenue South in Nashville.
Fisher showcased the success of the Great Reset, and RCC members were encouraged to support her in her work, as this aligns with the purpose of the RCC, to encourage understanding among religious and faith groups.
The RCC has members from every faith group and walk of life including Bahais, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, Sikhs, Hindus and more. The RCC, founded in 1929, is an association of communications professionals who work for and with a diverse group of faith-based organizations in the areas of communications, public relations, advertising and development. The RCC provides opportunities for communicators to learn from each other. Together, RCC members promote excellence in the communication of faith and values in the public arena.
