Symbolein = old greek
to make one

It was used
by shepherds
as a sign of oneness

to recognize each other

the staff of the patriarch
was broken
and each brother given a part

And when their children came together
they brought the pieces together
‘symbolein’ to make the staff one

That is the meaning
Of symbol
A piece of the staff

Today the staff is broken
In many pieces
Let us bring them together



To dwell in  unity
