The prophetic preacher, pastor, interfaith peacemaker and author George A. Mason, this week, has been honored by the most venerable of interfaith professional organizations—The Religion Communicators Council (RCC)—with the DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Award “Best in Class” for new books. The award is named to honor Victor DeRose and Paul M. Hinkhouse, who were leading lithographers in New York City and were supporters of the RCC’s work for many years.

In religious publishing, this is a great honor—and our entire community of authors, editors and publishing professionals are celebrating this week!

And, keep reading, because you can see George Mason’s video-acceptance speech below.

What’s the significance of the Religion Communicators Council?

Founded in 1929, the RCC began with Protestant co-founders but grew to include members of all faiths. 

The RCC describes itself this way:

The RCC provides opportunities for communicators to learn from each other. Together, RCC members promote excellence in the communication of faith and values in the public arena and encourage understanding among religious and faith groups. … We are nearly 500 religion communicators who work in print, electronic communications, advertising and public relations. We are writers, professors, public information officers, vice-presidents, directors of communication, graphic designers, consultants, managers. We worship as Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Scientologists, Buddhists, Sikhs, Bahá’í and work for those faith groups doing communication in one form or another

And, here’s George—
