Ways to practice Connections include honoring ancestors and the communion of saints, home shrines, kinship with animals, and dedication to all beings and future generations.
In some cultures families create home shrines to honor their ancestors. A "family tree" wall of photographs, a table of framed photographs, or a collection of photo albums also salutes these connections. Share stories about your ancestors as you look at the pictures.
- In One Like Jesus, Debra K. Farrington salutes sharing and encourages us to be manna in the wilderness for others.
- River of Fire, River of Water, Taitetsu Unno quotes a poem by Mitsu Aida about our connection with ancestors.
