Fellowship in Organizations

 

In most voluntary service organizations, the  warmth of fellowship is often experienced through a small but memorable experience.

I had my first taste of it soon after I joined a Rotary Club.The summer of 1984 was a seemingly endless nightmare for us, with my wife lying,  virtually reborn, in a Bangalore hospital, after a gruesome road accident. I distinctly remember one sweet incident of those months -  meeting a young Rotarian in a new Rotary Club that I visited in that city. His voice came across the telephone the next morning with a concern that touched us. “Any help I can organise for you, Raja? Medicines? I work in a  pharma company. What about the blood transfusion you mentioned!” By the grace of God, we didn’t need any help, But the face of the young friend stood out as the only sweet recollection of that bitter summer in Bangalore.

I guess this concern for each other is the essence of fellowship. There is the story that when the Buddha saw a disciple in meditation oblivious of the suffering of another monk down with dysentery in the next room, he served the suffering monk and said to the disciple “Go away; you have not understood my teaching. Give up your meditation when you see another in distress”. Indeed, such profound human  concern would be a truer transcendental experience than any form of worship.

I have had the pleasure of seeing  organisations where fellowship went far beyond socialising and socialising far beyond the  spirit fuelled by spirits. To them, as indeed to many service organizations, bonding evolved from a common concern for each individual in the organization. Members rushed to someone in distress. This was a twenty four hour service , given spontaneously and with serene joy.

Many business organizations have rituals, legends, heroes and other motivational measures to forge a culture of cohesiveness. I guess, at the heart of it all, is the spirit of service, the respect for the human being regardless of  his or her status, income or education.

Hi guys, I've spent most my time at Blogit on poetry and art photos.

This last few months I'm having trouble loading pictures. Anything changed?

I still have a cool list of photo's here, but can't seem to get them to take

in my work. Any ideas? AOL was always impossible, not Foxfire isn't working

for me.

Hello Blogit Team!
Thank  you for the upgrade and the opportunity to hear from you!

I had the good fortune to drive past your facility in San Jose a couple years back, but didn't have the time to stop by.
I really should have, it would have been a kick to actually see your place and meet some of you face to face.

I have an idea.... perhaps we can start  an anual BLOGIT get together where  Ariala , and Wiley and SAM and ferretlover and purple mermaid and whoever else is so inclined can get together for a hip hip hooray, a seminar or just fun in the sun!

It'a about time! 

By the way, I misplace my last BLogit check, can you please check and verify that it wasn't cashed and issue me another one? Thank you,
 Jannet Gregory
aka: Ferritlover & UKIE

Good for you folks
and I must tell you that my page is quite small now so I hope it comes back to ful size and that the tool bar comes back to normalk again. Good Luck with your efforts.

Lets hope your upgrade is not lost in the politics. The ADL does not like people being critical. The have a lot of money to shut it down or institute control! Be warned. If any move is sensed in this direction, please inform us so we can retrieve our materials before a closedown. Their complaint is that you guys make everybody a writer!
