Ah this Latin phrase has been a popular motto here in the US of A. “Out of many, One.” Yes, the country grew great as immigrants from all over the world sailed to their new home in the west easily accepting the diverse multitudes. My grandparents immigrated here from Sweden. Growing up in Chicago, I’ve visiting China town, had dinner in German restaurants, visited a Swedish fellowship where only Swedish was talked, drove through a Jewish and an African neighborhood. The high school was biracial. As a whole everyone was accepted. We were peacefully tolerating our different paths.
Accepting, not really, as our history tells a very different story at times. Just a few examples. We’ve slaved those from Africa to the cotton fields. We’ve pushed the native Americas aside. We fought against the Spaniards inhabiting the south. During the great second war, we rounded up the Japanese into interment camps as their home rulers attacked us first. And here we are now facing all of this head on that’s dividing us away from e pluribus unum.
E unum pluribus is the solution by reversing the original motto to “Out of One Many.” Jesus, the One, the original son of God begetting many other sons of God, us, natural humans of every continent believing and practicing the commandment to “Love one another.”
