Phil 2:1-4. If we as a church, if Philippi as a church, want to see God’s kingdom expand among us, we have to swim like fish — E Pluribus unum — out of many, one.
And when we, the body of Christ, swim together in unity as though we were of one soul, we communicate to the world what the very nature of God’s kingdom is like.
Our God is a social God, in perfect unity and community as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And this unified, communal God has created us to swim in His image — with one mind and purpose, individuals though we are. E pluribus unum — out of many, one.
