‘Unity’, The Unintended Consequence of a Large Group
On February 14, 2009, a pro-life group was started on facebook. In just 45 days, it had reached 1 million members. Since then it has steadily grown to where it is now over 1.75 million members. The groups original mission- to encourage, inspire and inform. Simple and very effective.
Along the way, we’ve learned something interesting. The massive size of the group has begun to create an unintended consequence- Unity, in the pro-life movement. People and organization are connecting through the group. Some for the first time. These connections are creating a new momentum in the pro-life movement. More and more people are becoming energized by this simple concept- ‘we are not alone’. There are others out there that ‘believe’ the same things that we do. And, we are connected and should be working together.
Unity-is a very simple/powerful/motivating concept. When people begin to align together through their common beliefs, their is unstoppable movement/synergy.
So, what do we learn from this?
Simply, to stay away from divisive people…focus on your core beliefs/passions…connect & work with like-minded people.
