Hope, the common good and our duty to the future

From Perpetual and Deepening Crisis to an opportunity for discernment, to shape a new vision for the future and to heal ourselves and our world.

The time is Now to Be A Crusader for Hope and the Common Good


Dear Friends of the GCGI,

Welcome to the first issue of our newsletter. We are pleased to share the first issue of our new quarterly newsletter, keeping you up to date with all the latest news and postings.

It was George Bernard Shaw who once quipped, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”  Ask anyone and they will tell you how true this is.  Healthy communication is a prerequisite to healthy relationships, friendships, and more so in the world of activism, cultivating friendship and working together in the interest of the common good.

I hope you enjoy this new way to keep you informed of  the work of our GCGI. From now on, instead of a few emails, here and there, I will send you four Newsletter each year: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, beginning with this, our Autumn one.

If you wish to contribute to these Newsletters in any way you wish, short articles, stories, announcements, news, and more, please contact me.

Moreover, if you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, please email me with the word: UNSUBSCRIBE
