Monthly Theme: Interdepencence

Go deeper into this month’s theme with reading, video and music

Diving Deeper


  • How do you understand the difference between independence and interdependence.
  • Is land merely a source of belongings, or is it the source of our most profound sense of belonging?
  • What do you think of the African term Ubuntu which means “I am because we are.” Do you see ubuntu in congregational life? Family life?
  • Do you find it easier to think about interdependence in terms of the environment or in terms of the human community? 


  • All of us need all of us to make it.” – Rev. Julián Jamaica Soto
    “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb
  • “I’ve come to believe… we already know our oneness with each other, so the process of coming to consciousness… is a process of recollecting. When we awake… We will understand that we have never been alone.” – Rob Spielgel
  • “Who am I?” inevitably leads to a deeper one, “Whose am I?” – Douglas Steere
