    The Interfaith Peacebuilding and Community Revitalization (IPCR) Initiative is aware of an urgent need to build bridges and increase collaboration between diverse communities of people; both as a response to the implications of ecological footprint analysis, climate change, and the “peaking” of our finite supplies of oil—and to be proactive about individual spiritual formation, interfaith peacebuilding, and the creation of ecologically sustainable communities.

    The IPCR Initiative understands that the complexity associated with building bridges and increasing collaboration between diverse communities of people, the urgent need for resolutions to a significant number of critical issues in the near future—and the seemingly chronic nature of many of the challenges of our times—suggest a need for problem solving on a scale most of us have never known before.

    The IPCR Initiative believes that the nature of the “Culture Change” necessary to overcome the challenges of our times will require fully utilizing all the knowledge, tools, and resources accessible to us for the highest good possible in every area of capacity building (physical, ecological, medical, spiritual, educational, social, economic, technical, political, etc).


    The IPCR Initiative is now offering the Spring 2007 issue of The IPCR Journal/Newsletter (36 pages), which includes:

    ∙ 16 observations and statistics from authoritative sources, offered as evidence of the depth and range of the challenges of our times

    The IPCR Spring 2007 “Building Caring Communities” Questionnaire—60 questions which, I believe, need to be asked more often so that communities can both understand the depth and range of the challenges of our times, and respond with appropriate compassion, skill, and urgency

    ∙ A list of 37 well-established service-oriented initiatives (whose expertise may not as yet be fully utilized by local community and regional efforts)

    ∙ A “List of 105 Related Fields of Activity”—provided as evidence of the countless numbers of ‘things people can do in the everyday circumstances of their lives’ which will contribute to peacebuilding, community revitalization, and ecological sustainability efforts, in their own communities and regions—and in other parts of the world.

    This Spring 2007 issue of The IPCR Journal/Newsletter demonstrates that it is possible for local and regional initiatives to assist with outreach, partnership formation, consensus building and development of service capacity associated with a significant number of peacebuilding, community revitalization, and ecological sustainability efforts, all at the same time.

    This Spring 2007 issue of The IPCR Journal/Newsletter is free. To request a copy (as an attachment to an e-mail, or by post mail) please use the following contact information:
