Public relations is a part of loving our neighbor. Being considerate and mindful of how we, as servants of the Lord, are coming across to others can be critically important. It takes self-awareness, cultural savvy, and wisdom to "understand the times" to flourish in public relations whether that be with City Council or residents in the neighborhood or with a special interest group. Many times having good public relations can not only make it easier to solve problems, but to prevent problems in the first place. This is a basic course in relating and communicating with the public.
