Part of my role as Chairperson of the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism is that I am responsible to head up the Executive Committee. We were having a devil of a time trying to find a time to meet, so we settled on today at lunch at the Grand Seminary of Montreal.
Today’s meeting highlighed a particular and immediate need at the Centre: we need a webmaster. We don’t need someone to do the technical infrastructure — that we have. What we need is someone to add the actual content to our site, to make it useful for the end user. The job is more editoral than technical. Any readers out there know someone who believes in the cause and can help in this area? I’d do it myself, but I’m already a Director, the corporate Secretary, and Chairperson of the Board. I’ve got too many hats already.
The Centre is, I believe, at a turning point in its existence. The world desperately needs to be more skilled in inter-faith understanding and reconciliation, and the Centre is an acknowleged nucleus of expertise in this area. But it is a bigger boat than I expected, and turning it is taking time. Still, we have a plan for how to move the Centre forward for the next 5 years, and I am committed to staying on until my services are no longer required for that purpose.
