The transfer of command – regenerasi

Among so many issues generating within Catholic Women of the Republic of Indonesia (WKRI) in Ungaran/Central Java – such as domestic violence against women, gender, social activities in the society, fund-raising, etc. – one of which often discussed is the transfer of command from senior members to younger ones. Senior members feel that their younger counterparts are not capable of doing proper things yet and thus they have the right to keep in command and do important roles in the community; whereas younger members complain that it is high time they be given chances to take part in decision making and play important roles in the community as well.

The question was answered at the meeting of parish board of Gereja Kristus Raja Ungaran with the Bishop of Keuskupan Agung Semarang Father Mgr. I. Soeharyo, Pr. The meeting, what-so-called “wawanhati” – talk with the heart, was held on June 21, 2009 at the meeting-hall of GKR Ungaran, attended also by the parish priests Father Stanislaus K. Suhartana, Pr and Father Laurentius Bondan Pujadi, Pr. 

The Bishop said that the key of many problems was a good communication. The answer was so simple and yet might be difficult to some extent. Responsibility should be shared, tasks should be delegated and a good communication should be built between senior and younger members of the community, he concluded.

 

Diantara banyaknya masalah perempuan yang tengah marak dibicarakan di Wanita Katolik RI Ranting Ungaran, seperti masalah KDRT, masalah gender, kegiatan sosial di masyarakat luas, penggalangan dana, dll. ada satu hal yang kiranya layak dikemukakan, yaitu peralihan kepemimpinan dari generasi senior kepada yang lebih muda. Di banyak komunitas/lingkungan, anggota senior  menganggap anggota muda belum mampu sehingga mereka masih terus duduk di kepengurusan, sementara di lain pihak orang muda mengeluh karena tidak bisa berbuat banyak untuk mengubah situasi yang ada karena tidak dipercaya. Hal ini kerap menciptakan ketegangan tersendiri.

Kiranya persoalan itu dijawab dengan bijak oleh Bapa Uskup Mgr. I. Soeharyo, Pr dalam acara wawanhati Dewan Paroki dan Pamong Lingkungan bersama Bapa Uskup di GKR Ungaran tgl.21 Juni 2009, yang juga dihadiri oleh Romo St.K. Suhartana, Pr dan Romo Laurentius Bondan Pujadi, Pr. Kunci masalah ada pada KOMUNIKASI yang baik. Jawaban sederhana ini bisa jadi tidak mudah dilakukan. Menurut Bapa Uskup : tanggung jawab harus dibagi, tugas-tugas mestinya didelegasikan dan hendaknya menghindari kekerasan “kata-kata” dan kekerasan “budaya”, sebaiknya dijalin komunikasi yang baik.
