Dear friends,

For the schedule for this week, click here.

GCW ANNIVERSARY PARTY: Thanks to everyone who joined us yesterday for the anniversary party. It was a fantastic day, with a ton of people dropping by, hanging our and celebrating with us between 1-4pm. We’re grateful to everyone who brought food and drink, especially the JustFaith group from San Juan del Rio Catholic Church over near Jacksonville. You can see photos from the day on our Flickr account here. We’re also grateful to everyone who posted notes on our Facebook page for the event. Some folks also asked about how they could help with a contribution toward the work we do at the house. If you want to make a gift, you can make a check out to the GCW and send it to us at the house address, 218 NW 2nd Ave, Gainesville, 32601. Thanks again to everyone for a very special day!

LATEST GCW NEWSLETTER AVAILABLE ONLINE: We also published our first newsletter in a year, just in time for the party yesterday. You can see the newsletter by clicking here or send us your address if you’d like to be added to our mailing list and receive a hard copy in the mail.

SPECIAL VIEWING OF “CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY”: We’ll be taking a group of people to see the new Michael Moore movie, “Capitalism: A Love Story,” for the 7pm showing on Tuesday of this week. If you want to join us, meet at the GCW between 6-6:30pm for a ride to the theater. We’ve been given a gift to cover the cost of a number of tickets for the show but if anyone else wants to chip in so we can take as many people as possible, please let us know. Thanks! For more on the movie, click here to read Kelli’s thoughts.

ROUNDTABLE ON RITUAL, PERFORMANCE AND THE CREATIVE PROCESS: Join us this week as GCW regular Leah Sarat, a PhD student in the religion department at UF joins us to lead a roundtable on “Working Playfully and Playing Workfully: Understanding Ritual, Performance and Creativity.” Leah will be leading us in an exploration of ritual, performance, and the creative process, with the hope of gaining some insights that can be applied to our social justice work. We’ll talk a bit about the relationship between ideas and action, body and mind, and the role of memory in ritual. Bring a dish to share if you can!

Hope you’ll join us this week for any of these activities and more!

In peace,
