Pause to reflect on the many ways your needs have been met well enough for you to grow to this point in your life. You have survived vulnerable times—as an infant or when sick or injured—as a result of someone else's care. You may want to spend some time outside observing how other animals in Nature receive support in their life and growth and how they give back to the system that supports them, just as you are doing in your congregation right now. Appreciate yourself, too.
