We the We

It’s never well when “I” thinks it’s “We.” When a single note believes it’s the orchestra, and when “We the people” is interpreted to mean “I am the we.” The lure to “go my separate way” or “do my own thing” is the ailment of our time—whether in the home, society, or church. Something is wrong when the ignorance of “I” boasts of its wisdom; when self-centered rebellion usurps unity and togetherness; and when the delusion of lone-rangerism claims enlightenment. Even God is a team of Three; Creation is a “let us” event; and the joy of Eden is a complementarity of the “we” of Adam and Eve. In the words of Malcolm X, “When ‘i’ is replaced with ‘we’ even illness becomes wellness.” Let’s redeem the “we” (Psalms 133:1)!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
