“Just Jot It January #26–Oneness” by Linda Martin Andersen

I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit.  I can’t participate every day this month, but I will join in when I can.

I decided to create a theme to write about:  I chose “celebrate.”  Today’s suggested prompt is “oneness.”  I have combined my theme with the suggested prompt for the day.

Today, I celebrate the oneness of community. 

What community?  Whatever community you want to think on.

My List:  The Oneness of…

  1. The community of nature.  That’s a big community, but I love it so much.  I  look out my kitchen window at wildlife that visits occasionally.
  2. The community of writers.  I love their support and encouragement.  I appreciate that fellow writers connect to critique stories and share writing tips.
  3. The community of family and friends who love me unconditionally.
  4. The community of believers.  To me, that means Christian believers, although it may be different for you. I benefited from the love and support of a Stephen Minister in my church when I was a caregiver for my husband.  Others in the church remembered us in numerous ways too. https://www.stephenministries.org/
  5. The community with God.  I am never alone.  I am thankful for God’s endless, limitless love.

Oneness signifies belonging and connecting to me.  What about you?

Writing Prompts: 

  1. Brainstorm oneness of community.  What communities would you include?
  2. Who or what belong in the communities of oneness that you named?
  3. How does your belief of oneness effect the person you are?

  1. All your examples are great, LInda. The oneness of the church is truly amazing– that we can be joined with brothers and sisters of similar faith throughout the world! One time I worshipped in a Spanish church and even though I couldn’t understand the language, I knew we were one in Christ.

    • Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the examples, Carol. Thanks for sharing your experiences too. So powerful. Sharing faith with others throughout the world is fabulous. Even language barriers don’t separate us. Blessings radiate from all directions, if we let them warm our souls.

    Dear Linda,
    This is a good message about community. The love of God for all of his people and how he connects us is a wondrous thing. I am so glad that he led us to each other.

    Never Give Up

    Linda, your blog is a true reminder of how we are part of many communities. One thing I’ve learned in my writing career, it takes a community to publish a book!


    • Gretchen,
      Thanks for stopping in and commenting. Yes, we are part of many different communities. Isn’t it wonderful? You and Sandra did a great thing helping a fellow writer publish a book. Bravo! I don’t know where I’d be without my writing community.

  4. Glad you’ve shared your faith, Linda. I’m having a hard time keeping up with posts. LOL 🙂
