FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY!
Q: What is Five Minute Friday?
A: It is a 5min free write blog event hosted by Kate Motaung. Every Thursday Kate announces a one-word prompt on her blog at 10pm EST. The link-up is open for a full week, until the following Thursday evening. For further details on how to participate visit her blog at: Heading Home.
(Although I’ve missed the link-up for this prompt I’ve decided to post anyway).
Five Minute Friday Prompt: TEAM
A word that conjures a picture of unity and togetherness. Everyone on the same side pulling together! That’s the ideal.
I’ve been part of a team – such as a netball team, such as an editorial team. These teams more or less lived up to that ideal. We all worked together for a common goal—whether that was to beat the opposing side, or to produce a great magazine issue.
I’ve also been part of a team that did not live up to this ideal. Where members back-stabbed and undermined and sought glory for themselves in order to shine, in order to get on and move up. Unpleasant!
What (I wonder), would it be like to work in a team such as the one the Holy Trinity are part of (Father, Son and Holy Ghost)? Each member celebrating the other, co-operating with each other, consulting and agreeing with one another on momentous decisions: “Let us make man in our own image”.
What would it be like to be equal in power, in ability and authority, and yet submit graciously to the other team members? What must it feel like to allow the separate members to shine… to do what they are tasked with—without getting in the way, without questioning, without plotting to grab the glory? Oh the unimaginable bliss of complete and utter unity!
Holy Godhead, how I envy you! How marvellous it must be to work in such an atmosphere of total unity and respect.
Father God, sweet Jesus, divine Holy Spirit – you are the true Olympians!

I loved the Team post above. The beauty of Team God (Father, Son and Holy Ghost) is we are called to that same unity with them/Him according to John 17:20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,
John 17:21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
John 17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me,a that they may be one as we are one—
John 17:23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent mea and have loved them even as you have loved me.
Not only are we called to unity with each other, but we are called to unity with the Lord Himself. Thus we are called His bride. Now that is some team!
