Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Principled Commitment: An Adult Program on Building Strong Relationships

Spiritual Preparation

Consider the guiding Principle for this session, "Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part." Take some moments to reflect on ways in which you use your own gifts to respect the interdependent web. Consider writing down at least ten gifts that you freely share with others.

Think about your own close relationships. Do you express gratitude for them regularly? If not, how could you do so?

Some of the most common prayers can be summed up simply: "Help!" or "Thank you." How do you express gratitude through your spiritual practices? Take some time to engage in a practice that expresses or evokes your gratitude.
