Think again!

The CRT is to appoint a Boating Waterways Liaison Officer. This has come about because the Waterways Chaplaincy do not have the resources to be a viable solution.

Excuse me, but, this hasn’t been thought through. Instead of hiring another high cost member to the clan why not help the Chaplaincy with funding so it can be a viable solution? It could be called. . . . . . . . . . Contracting Out!

Don't be silly Maffi. We're empire building here, don't get in the way!

Why does a secular organisation, concerned with administration of waterways, need a chaplaincy?

Maffi said...

I don't know M but if we have one then it makes sense to do the contracting out thing.

Marilyn McDonald said...

How about contracting it all the way out of CRT to churches or chaplaincy organisations whose whole raison d'etre it is and have them fund it, rather than CRT! Given how many churches are close by the canals and are mentioned in the canal maps/guides, I think those in need of spiritual succour can get to a vicar/priest/pastor without CRT funding a chaplaincy service which, of necessity because of the length of the canal system, has to be spread extremely thinly. GRUMP!!!

Yes that might be a viable option Marilyn, but I was commenting on the situation as it is currently.

Using 'CRT' and 'thought through' in the same post, have you lost the plot?

Marilyn McDonald said...

Sorry, Maffi, I wasn't clear in my second comment - I was suggesting that CRT cease providing a chaplaincy service as an option in the current situation. In consultant speak - re-focus the funding back into CRT's core business and allow those with the expertise in the community to provide and fund chaplaincy services.
