Creating Synergy

I don’t think many of you go back and read the comments that are left after posts here on GOOD NEWS! But there are often some very good ones that you should read. For example, after my post “Peace Like a River” there were two exceptional comments. (Click here and it will take you to them.)

"Sweet Synergy" by Josephine Wall
I appreciate the comments left and like how they add so much  to what I've written. Achieving that synergy is what life is all about. Synergy occurs when two or more parts come together and the total adds up to more than what the parts alone would equal. When you have synergy 2 plus 2 equals 6 or 7 instead of simply 4. It's what happens when a violin, cello, flute, or viola come together. Alone each instrument is beautiful but together they make a music that is beyond anything the others alone can make or even what you would expect from the four together. Synergy is what makes a good marriage, a good family, a good friendship, a good ward, a good gospel discussion, and a good blog. So any of you feel free to add your comments or experiences or questions so that we all will be benefited.

And tomorrow I will continue describing the individual Truth Tools. For those of you who have been reading GOOD NEWS! for awhile I am welcoming you to add your own experiences with the Tools to help others understand how they work. A good story says more than all the dialogue can!

(I love this painting by Josephine Wall called "Sweet Synergy."  If you click on her name it will take you to her site where she explains the symbolism in the painting.)

That is a really neat picture. My mission president used to talk a lot about synergy between the members and the missionaries as well. :)
