News just broke–a catastrophic event has occurred in your community. What do you say to your church as a pastor? A community leader? A lay servant or lay speaker? As a CLM? What is the message when violence, natural disaster, or disease raises questions about where God is to be found during tragedy? Fractured Ground, a book study that explores communication following mass trauma, will be your guide whether you are speaking from the pulpit, to the press and public, or to individuals facing the circumstances. Author Kimberly R. Wagner stresses that communication must be clear, and that you must name, acknowledge, and open opportunities to recognize hurt, pain, loss, and brokenness of the community, as well as “attentive to hope, redemption, and new life.”
