The Tree of Heaven

The poet Khalil Gibran wrote of the gratitude we feel for the plants and animals that sustain us, saying “Your blood and my blood is naught but the sap that feeds the tree of heaven." In this service, we will reflect together on the debt of gratitude we owe to the world around us. In our busy lives, we often forget to take time to reflect on our gratitude-- and, yet, remembering all we have to be grateful for is one of the most powerful spiritual practices we can engage with. As Unitarian Universalists, we honor the connections in all of life, the interconnected web of all existence to which we each belong. As Thanksgiving approaches, we will reflect together on the many facets of gratitude in our lives.

This month's theme: Memory
