Stand apart and together

28 Apr 2022 | Christ-likeness | 0 comments

Sing and dance together and be joyous

But let each one of you be alone

Even as the strings of a lute are alone

Though they quiver with the same music.


Stand together yet not too near together,

For the pillars of the temple stand apart

And the oak tree and the cypress

Grow not in each other’s shadow.


Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), The Prophet.
