Hello and Welcome,
Sometimes, we take greeting people and the power of that for granted. I believe that "Welcome" is one of the nicest words in the English language. When you are welcome, you are acknowledged, being invited to make connection, and to be included. So, when you greet people this summer, I invite you to practice really welcoming them and make them feel at home with you. ( I think you may agree that our world, perhaps more than ever, needs more welcoming, more graciousness, and more civility.)
Similarly, when we welcome new ideas, we invite them in--to reflect upon, to think about, and perhaps consider integrating them into our lives and our work.
Lastly, we continue to extend a hearty welcome to all of our new members. In this edition, we have spotlights on two new members. I hope you read their info, and "welcome" them to the GCA!
New member submissions are always welcome (hmmm...there's that word again!), as well as submissions from members who have something to share with us all. Remember, this is your newsletter!
Wishing you all a continued summer of joy, rejuvenation, and fun! Till September!
