I walk with beauty before me;

I walk with beauty behind me;

I walk with beauty above me;

I walk with beauty below me;

I walk with beauty all around me;

Your world is so beautiful, O God.-Navajo prayer

Dear Friends of the GCGI,

As the season of Easter begins across many countries around the world, we at the GCGI, extend season's greetings and our best wishes of love, peace, renewal and hope to you all.

At this beautiful time of the year, flowers and blossoms are blooming, birds are singing, butterflies are dancing, and the days are getting brighter and longer. What better way to sing the praises of Spring’s arrival than to read beautiful poetry. Here are two poems we would like to share with you: One from Hopkins and the other from Wordsworth: Celebrating the joyous Spring with Hopkins and Wordsworth

One hundred years ago, on the official first day of spring, the Anglo-Welsh war poet and naturalist Edward Thomas  set off from Clapham Common in London to cycle and walk to the Quantock Hills in Somerset. The record of his journey, called In Pursuit of Spring, became a nature-writing classic, telling of exuberant chiffchaffs and house martins, daffodils and cowslips in full flower and "honeysuckle in such profusion as I had never before seen"... ‘In Pursuit of Spring’

And now for those who are interested to read a bit more about Easter from a Christian perspective, we recommend this sermon delivered at the Swedenborgian Church, Cambridge, MA, where the pastor combines religion and nature together to deliver the Easter Message: Spring and Resurrection: A New Way of Life

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy Easter,

Enjoy the beautiful and inspiring nature and springtime,


Kamran and Annie
