🌏 UNITY IS DIVERSITY
I want to be part of an organic organism (not organization) that gives room for fresh ideas, encourages uniqueness, and celebrates our differences.
💭 In a dream last night, I was in a group of people that had always done things a certain way. Each person who joined would end up acclimating/adjusting themselves to look like the rest of them. In essence they lost their individual identity bit by bit as they replaced it with the corporate identity until sadly their originality was lost. Unfortunately, the face of this group always remained the same, never changing, they had become stagnant and irrelevant to others around them and if you didn't assimilate into their culture as a "team player" you were rejected. (End of dream). 💭
🎨 But the phrase "team player" looks so different to me. During college, in my art studio, I was surrounded by an eclectic mix of artists who saw & interpreted differently from one another. Sharing & community was encouraged to help each artist expand/discover their personal styles. We were careful not to coerce anyone to take on our perceptions, only enlighten, because what made each one of us unique was our differences. I believe wholeheartedly, "we are fearfully and wonderfully made by God" and that He made each one of us beautifully rare.🎨.
📖 The scriptures say, "For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ"... "And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be?" (1 Cor. 12:12, 15-19)
💖 There can be unity in our diversity. 💖
