We need each other

There is only so much that we can do on our own. Each of us has many abilities and skills, but none of us has every skill we need for every task that we might have to undertake.

That is the motivation for people working together in teams, or as we are in Carlisle Diocese – all coming together in Mission Communities, rather than simply being isolated Churches.

All through the Bible we see the leaders of God’s people enlisting the help of others to do the tasks God had called them to. Indeed, even Jesus himself gathered a group around him who went everywhere with him, not simply to learn from him but to share the work.

None of us was created to plough a lone furrow.

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)

God Himself knew we would need others, saying it was not good that man should be alone, Apart from companionship working with others gives encouragement, support, keeps us accountable, and has greater impact in any task we may want to accomplish.

It also makes the task that little bit easier too. “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” — Helen Keller

We all need people around us to encourage and inspire us. We are better together - life is not meant to be done alone.
