All gifts my brothers give belong to me.
We stand on the shoulders of millions of people who have come before us and no person is an island. Our lives are daily supported by the work, effort, and energy of others. Don’t forget that all gifts my brothers and sisters give belong to me. Without them, I could not exist on this planet for long.
In Alcoholics Anonymous it is suggested that we carry the message of our spiritual awakening to others in step twelve as many of them carry theirs to us. Meetings would not exist and hope could not be offered without the work of many people in the rooms.
In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm seven principles because without our brothers and sisters there would be no covenant and no way to practice our principles. All the gifts given by my brothers and sisters belong to me.
Today, it is suggested that we reflect on our many blessings, many of which come from the thousands of supply chains which nourish and support our lives.
