Paul describes the church as a single united entity, one body, made up of many parts. Each part belongs to each other part. But this is far from a picture of uniformity. Each part performs its function for the service of the whole. In western culture we major in independence, we are less equipped than some other cultures to function being dependent on one another. Yet, that is what the culture of the church is meant to be.
How we might step towards truly function as part of one body in the church today? What does this look like amongst our own local church? What would this look like across the whole church?
