Our FAITH is the foundation of our COMMUNICATIONS
Com municating during a pandemic
Talking Heads LIVE | Friday, April 24, 12–1 p.m. EDT
Greetings from Anabaptist Communicators!

On April 3, we held our first Talking Heads LIVE of 2020 — "Coronavirus and Communications" — with 23 participants from various Canadian provinces and U.S. states who represented a range of church and nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, health and human service organizations, freelancers and more. I was grateful to hear from all who shared about what they were experiencing in  this new reality.

We're offering another opportunity for online conversation and connection facilitated by John Longhurst this coming Friday, April 24, 12–1 p.m. EDT. Even if you might be feeling "zoomed out," I encourage you to join us! This is a unique setting where you can gain insights and wisdom from fellow Anabaptist communication professionals and share your own as well in these unpredictable times.

Please register by 11 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday at this link to get the Zoom call access information. There is no charge to participate.

Praying for a strong sense of God's presence with you all throughout the challenges we are facing —
Annette Brill Bergstresser
AC board chair

We're now weeks and months into the COVID-19 pandemic, with our experiences continually evolving. While working at home and meeting online were novel at first, it's become more challenging to stay motivated when everything requires more energy and no clear end is in sight. And depending on our workplace, some of us may still be required to work in person.

How is the pandemic affecting you as an Anabaptist communicator — and your organization? What's going well, and what isn't? What professional or personal practices are sustaining you? You're invited to connect with other communicators in an online Zoom conversation to share reflections and resources.  Join us on Friday, April 24, 12–1 p.m. Eastern Time!

John Longhurst is the freelance religion reporter and columnist at the  Winnipeg Free Press and works part time as communications coordinator for MDS Canada. He also is president of the board of Mennonite World Review and president of the Canadian Christian Communicators Association.
There's still time to become an AC member!
