  28. 28. Your Goal 29 • Where is your audience on the issue? • What are you hoping your community will do? • How do you plan to move them from where they are into action?
  29. 29. Managing the Conflict 31 • On this issue there will be disagreement within your community • In an era of social communication, you need to decide how engaged you will be with your audience as they process what you communicate • Two examples: – Is Your Heart Ready to Help? – Jesus was a Refugee
  30. 30. Is Your Heart Ready to Help? 32 I agree with everything Jon wrote. My problem lies not with the true refugees but those who come in under that premise but mean us harm (example; the hundreds of pictures of refugees I have seen that were 75% able working young men) If you want to call that "fear" then so be it. And, in that case we should all stop locking our doors at night. After all, your words, " Then release the fear and grab hold of faith!" XX, thanks for your comment. The reality is that every time we love, we open ourselves up to be hurt. Love requires vulnerability that can only be protected by faith. You are right that people will take advantage of our love and compassion . . . Thanks for getting back. I know you speak truth. Constructive Dialogue
  31. 31. Is Your Heart Ready to Help? 33 Let's take the women and children in but send ALL THE MEN BACK TO FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTS LIKE AMERICANS HAD TO! Well, help is biblical. Turn the other face is biblical. But letting radical muslims in our countries, watching how they murdering enocent people, its a bit different. Love your enemy, is true and biblical statement, but when you see what 'thy neighborI am all for helping them get their country back. I am not for bringing them into our country unless they swear to our constitution. That is biblical to how Moses ran the nation of Israel. Processing Solutions

  33. 33. Is Your Heart Ready to Help? 35 A lot of good praying will do you..as these refugees either bomb you or decapitate you...as for a blog on christianity as an answer that won't help either...the answer is simple...an eye for an eye... Jesus was not a refugee!!! He owns the whole world, He spoke it into existence. These refugees ain't Jesus and they wish to kill you! Defending Positions
  34. 34. Jesus was a Refugee 36 Where in the Bible does His Word say that Jesus was ever a refugee? Dear XX, thanks for your note. We hope you get to buy the resource and see how we go about making that case, but the short answer is that as Joseph and Mary were forced to flee the government of Herod and live in Egypt for several years, the... Sorry, no. Jesus was not a refugee. Constructive Dialogue
