This should keep everybody safe/ in peace of mind.
As you can see CLC advertise unpaid comradeship, online connectivity and advertise it to trusted men/ women in order to join a pilgrims journey as digital nomads in prayer for each other and sharing insights/ experience/ study of the faith in difficult times.
This is a dynamic project and it doesn't have an address/ location, therefore no guarantee for stable connections.
When a comrade is not active within a year, he/she will probably want to drop out.
Nobody can sue nobody.
This dynamic project will not be competing against a legal corporation or huge organisation.
The project works alongside the church, submitted to the action of the bishop in case it ever gets addressed.
The relationships among comrades will be based on trust which is an easy one because there is no money involved.
This is not an enterprise or business. There is no need for legal bureaucracy.
When it comes to policy my first thoughts around this are mostly around safeguarding and how we ensure that safe-guarding is transparent in this space.
Instances of abuse have happened because of a manipulation of a power dynamic in a relationship, where vulnerabilities are exploited for selfish end, whatever the motivation.
It seems that anyone who is working with another, needs to be aware of the implications of a power dynamic in a relationship such as I am suggesting, particularly if it happens under the auspices of the Church.
Prospective people have a right to know how they will be kept safe. And the terms and conditions therefore are no different to the ones from the diocese or a religious institution.
The comrades will know such policies.
In monastic communities members obey the Rule of Saint Benedict. It comes in form of a small handbook which can be downloaded here in several text file formats and audio format or one can buy it from a book shop.
The content of this website is not to be understood as collective but complimentary/ compatible between comrades. Every comrade has his own page like a publishing office room.
A comrade will adhere to the voice of the church which means the comrade will have an understanding for views from different angles on any issue or event.
It is good to have views from different angles and comrades compliment each other and everything comes from good- will.
So, whole story short, nobody is going to be exploited or loose his/her reputation.
Everything will work out. and we do whatever works out for the greater glory of our creator.
May this find you in peace of your precious soul!
