Hello and Welcome to our final edition of 2020, a year we will never forget for various reasons! (but maybe some of us want to?) Anyway, the GCA continues to grow and thrive, and we are excited and grateful. With new membership comes new life and expansions into new areas of growth.
As we wind down the year, it is a good time to reflect upon our gratitude for this year, for the "blessons" (blessings combined with lessons), the challenges, and the ways that we have adapted and shown our resilience. It is often said that challenges push us to grow, to change, and to let go of complacency. Perhaps that is true this year than any other in recent memory--from social changes, to political changes, to interpersonal changes, to individual changes in how we relate with ourselves and others, how we deal with solitude and isolation, and loss.
In cultivating our spirituality and faith through these challenges, we also learn that we need each other and we need connection, and that we are stronger when we are in community.
So, as I close, let me thank you for the opportunity to share some of my perspectives with this platform as editor. It is an honor to be part of an organization that brings out positivity and the spirit of service at this particular juncture in time.
To your health and well-being, and to the health and well-being of those nearest and dearest to you.
As my highly evolved mother, "Mama Katz" (89, healthy, and always playing a mean game of scrabble) always says; "If you have your health, you have everything, because without your health, you can do nothing."
Be well and Happy Holiday/Solstice, etc.
