PR’s Not Purgatory, It’s Relevance

I guess we should be taking exception to this. Here’s a clergyman reporting that one former associate minister he’s heard about “is working in public relations at a major state university.“ As though that’s a form of purgatory.

The reality, however, is that for churches, too, public relations ought to be a pivotal discipline. Things appear to be slipping for churches. But strong relational ties to communities and their residents are part of where renewal may lie.

Public relations isn’t a form of exile; it’s a relevance discipline.

(Painting - Claudia Rogge, EverAfter Purgatory IV)
