Working in Unison
By: Rick Boxx
December 13, 2012

To highlight the importance of unity in the church, a video was played at a conference I attended of an orchestra flash mob in Spain. One lone cello player began playing Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.”

His music was pleasant, but as other individuals with different instruments and voices gradually joined him, the music became fuller and more complete and the crowd grew. Watching these performers use their individual gifts collectively, reminded our group of the power of working in unity.

Romans 15:5 teaches, “May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus.”

In your workplace, it’s tempting to work alone, but don’t overlook the power of many gifted people working in unison. A workplace symphony can be beautiful!

If you desire a team and culture in your workplace that is working in unison consider IRC’s consulting services.
