We are often tempted to try to do things on our own. But when we start looking more closely at our lives, we realize quite quickly that we need each other - consider the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the cars we drive - that so much of what we do depends on the skills, talents and abilities of millions of people.
"United we stand" speaks to the fundamental truth of life and spiritual life.
First, we cooperate together to have enough.
Second, generosity flows out of our interdependence on one another.
