Lori Ransom joins TRC team.

THE CHURCH'S HEALING and reconciliation animator bid farewell to national offices, and joined the ranks of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in September.

I am very excited that this opportunity will allow me to continue the work which I have grown even more passionate about through these past five years of work for the Presbyterian Church in Canada healing and reconciliation with indigenous peoples, Lori Ransom wrote to the Record. And I am delighted that by working with the TRC, I should be able to maintain working relationships with many of the colleagues in the PCC and the ecumenical and aboriginal partners with whom I have been privileged to work in recent years.

Ransom will begin an 18-month assignment with the TRC on Sept. 19.

David Phillips will take on the position of healing and reconciliation animator part-time. He served on the healing and reconciliation advisory committee since its first meeting in December 2006. He will also continue in his current part-time position with Canadian Ministries the Vine.
