  • What is Christian communication in the face of widespread exposure of abusive Christianity?

    What is Christian communication in the face of widespread exposure of abusive Christianity?

    The recent public exposure of extensive sexual abuse of children and adults by Christian leaders, and its prolonged cover-up by other Christian leaders, has arguably had a greater impact on the current public standing and perception of Christianity than any other single factor in the past century.

  • Communication makes relationship possible

    Communication makes relationship possible

    I would like to congratulate WACC on its 50th anniversary. It seems like only yesterday that we were in London celebrating our 25th anniversary. “As time goes by…” Today, this celebration is a good opportunity to share words of deep appreciation and gratitude to all those who during this time have served in this ministry of communication.

  • The new normal

    The new normal

    We were having Sunday lunch at one of those new, up-scale burger places that are popping up all over Latin America. Menus generally include veggie burgers, beef, pork, chicken – and, of course, craft beers. We were sitting at an inside counter. Our son noted a docile Labrador sitting with its family at an outside table.

  • Challenges for communication rights in the 21st century

    Challenges for communication rights in the 21st century

    “It is no coincidence that whenever intellect is seen as a danger, the first move is to ban books and impose strict censorship on newspapers, magazines and radio broadcasts; you can pack enough dynamite between the lines – on the printer’s tiny line of fire – to blow up entire worlds.”

  • Affirming humanity: the challenge for communicators

    Affirming humanity: the challenge for communicators

    The other day, as part of the process of subscribing to an email list, a message appeared asking me to “affirm humanity”. Or at least that’s how I read it in the split second before realising that what it actually said was “confirm humanity”. Far from encouraging me to send positive vibes to my fellow women and men, it was prompting me to convince an automated newsletter platform that I am not a robot.

  • Sanctuaries for deep dialogue and togetherness

    Sanctuaries for deep dialogue and togetherness

    We live on a fractured planet and we are the most fragmented species on the planet. We face fractures between generations, men and women, rich and poor, winners and losers, between those whose God is a God of fear and violence and those whose God is a God of love and care.

  • Why WACC?

    Why WACC?

    Millions of people on every continent lack a voice to address inequality. They are underrepresented or misrepresented in the media, have low levels of media literacy, have limited access to relevant information and knowledge, and are excluded from participation in decision-making processes. WACC helps them to speak up.
