The Deep End – Synergy

Earlier in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus sent out the twelve disciples to heal diseases and teach about God’s Kingdom. Here he sends out a much larger group ahead of him, in pairs to every town and place where He himself intended to go. Being sent in pairs reminds us of the value of team work. In order for communities to grow and flourish the gifts of many people are needed. Synergy is needed. This happen when individual talents are harvested and aligned, as in the beauty of an orchestra in perfect harmony, or a sports team at the peak of their performance. Synergy is like the power of the Spirit that rewards collaborative efforts. It is when we can dream and strive for the possibility of things before they happen.

Synergy promotes collaboration, not competition or exclusion.

Jesus gathered his followers around him, men and women, who were enthused by his vision. He sends his followers out in pairs so that they can support one another. In all our different roles, we too are sent out ahead of him, as parents, ministers of various kinds, politicians, educators, social workers, nurses.

In any team – parish pastoral council or ministry teams we need a type of synergy. We are all responsible for our Church, not just a selected few. We all have different roles to play, we all have responsibility.

When we promote collaborative team work and strive for synergy, we embrace each other’s stories and work for the common good. Then exciting things are possible!
