Each month a reading is provided on the following topics:
1. Communication 101a: Common ground and shared understanding, good relationships.
2. Communication 101b: The nuts and bolts of communication, definitions of communication.
3. Communication 101c: Stuff that gets in the way, Mindfulness.
4. The Incarnation as communication: mission as communication.
5. Something is different now: New Zealand context.
6. Society as ‘sender’.
7. Church as ‘receiver’.
8. The Connected Church.
Each month a few questions are provided to ponder with your own ministry context in mind, with the expectation that you will share some of your reflections with the rest of the group in the online forum.
Feedback from a 2019 participant in this Communication, Church and Society Guided Learning option:
“I have really enjoyed this GL option this year, I had nothing like this over these last years working in France. I have enjoyed reading the comments and feedback from the others in my cohort as well as your replies and comments, Mike. I think more Baptist leaders should be encouraged to do this course as the realities of the church situation here in New Zealand (and a lot of ‘Western’ countries) becomes clearer and clearer. I have understood a lot more about the current situation here in NZ, which was one of the reasons that this course interested me, especially after 20+ years in France…
…This course has given me some great tools and ways of thinking to be able to stop the “let’s go back to Egypt” mentality that still exists for some people.”
