I just came across this Facebook post: “I welcomed back a coworker who just returned from Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). As a Christian, it might not be popular to do so, but I think it says a lot to honor a person and their experiences.”
As a leadership consultant, keynote speaker and Spirit Strategist, I look at the world through the lens of business, spirituality and technology. Social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are great places to discover where these 3 topics intersect.
When we do this, we dismiss our human connection to each other and to Spirit by any name. Also, I encourage you to try not to judge one pilgrimage as more sacred than another. By all names, these are special times for each person to connect to what is sacred for him or her.
Hajj is the largest mass gathering in the world. Therefore, you may know a coworker who takes part in this annual pilgrimage to Mecca – or takes part in a pilgrimage, retreat, walkabout or sabbatical in another faith tradition.
Today’s workforce is composed of global citizens with a wide array of religious and spiritual beliefs. I invite you to remember our Oneness.
Have you had an experience with a coworker by honoring their faith tradition? Or has someone gone out of their way to honor yours? I’d welcome your stories at Holly@HollyDuckworth.com.
