Many parts form one body, so it is with Christ
God of grace and glory,
you call us with your voice of flame
to be your people,
faithful and courageous.
Inspire us with the fire of your Spirit
to join in your transforming work.
We ask this in the name
of our Savior Jesus the Messiah,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.”
I Corinthians 12:12
“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, 1963
“Because Jesus saw the potential of perfection in someone instead of the lack thereof… and so should we”
Dr. Jeffery Trask, 2019
