Go Ahead, Try This at Home
Here’s one person’s take on how all of us can appreciate how dependent we are on people we have never met and who may live far way: “As you walk around your home, bring to mind all the people who built it, treated its timbers, baked its bricks, installed the plumbing, and wove your linens. When you get up in the morning, remember those who planted, picked, and spun the cotton of your sheets and who collected, treated, and exported the beans you grind for your morning coffee. You enjoy their products, so you have a responsibility for them, especially if they were working in poor conditions. Who baked the bread you toast for breakfast? Become aware of the labor that went into the productions of each slice. As you set off to work, reflect on the thousands of workers and engineers who build and maintain the roads, cars, railroads, planes, trains, and underground transport on which you rely. Continue this exercise throughout the day… We are what we are because of the hard work, insights, and achievements of countless others.” By Karen Armstrong in Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life.
Philemon 4: I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers.
