Thought for the Day: What does it mean to live in unity when we are not to be interacting in our usual ways? I believe this moment provides one of the great opportunities for us to rediscover a sense of unity that begins with appreciation. You may believe you are isolated, but where did the food come from that you are eating, the electricity you are using, medications you are taking or the important information that you are depending upon? How about the people who are way down the chain of creating or delivering whatever it is? We are linked to one another in a great web of sharing and providing. Too often we dismiss our dependence on one another in pursuit of a strange and unhealthy individualism, yet in 99% of situations, we remain just as dependent as anyone else. Unity needs to begin with appreciation and respect for every person, job and task upon which we depend. Otherwise, we slip into a false sense of ourselves and our capacity to provide. It is only when we appreciate and enjoy that beautiful web of mutuality and reliance that we can begin to see the unity God desires.
Prayer: You have wired us to be connected and to thrive in community. O Creator of Light and Life and Love, redirect our attention to this beautiful and inescapable web of mutuality and holy participation. Amen.
