The Murmuration Effect – Book Trailer
Live this Value by Being Invitational, Choosing to Listen, and Pursuing Diversity.
I recently met Lucas (the creative mind behind the Murmuration Effect initiative) at a conference in California. This 3 minute video is just a small clip of the concepts Lucas has discovered by studying the construct of the Murmuration. One of the unique things about hundreds of thousands of birds dancing through the air is that any bird can change the pattern at any time and the rest move in unison. Mind blown. As a community, One21 seeks to move in a rhythm with one another, but more than that, we long to sustain deep relationship with neighbors, friends, enemies, and everyone in between. For us, this cannot be a concept, but a practice.

Open your calendar, pick a date, and invite 2-4 people who aren’t your best friends to hang out for a few hours.
How often do you invite new people to join your community?
How diverse is your community? How are you making it a priority to listen to those whose beliefs, lifestyle, race, or gender differ from yours?
Grace and peace to you as you adventure with Jesus this week.
