Support Each Other

Two GirlsMembers of the Household Body needed to support each other in the Christian body. Two killer whales amazingly swam alongside another that had become sick and cradled it on their backs so it could breath the air at the surface until it recovered. Geese fly in a "V" shaped formation to slipstream each other and this extends their range by seventy per cent.✞

V Formation Aerodynamic

Flying Geese over Weather VaneDr Steven Portugal told the journal "Nature", "The distinctive V-formation of the bird flocks has long intrigued researchers." The Daily Express reported, "Birds fly in a V-formation to make the whole flock more aerodynamic, British researchers revealed. A team from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London found the birds matched the wing beats of others to help reduce drag and stayed in unison to make flight as easy as possible." When the lead bird tired from the wind's buffeting, it dropped back and another replaced it. In mist or clouds, they honked to locate one another. By flying together, rather than singly, they covered much greater distances.✞

The Body Adjusts

ArmThe "Minneapolis Star and Tribune" ran an article on how the body of a conditioned runner reacted in a long distance race. "When the body begins to overheat, sweat glands release liquid to cool it. When it starts to run low on sugar, which is fuel for the muscles, a hormone from the pancreas tells the liver to release stored sugar into the bloodstream. As the legs need more oxygen, the brain signals the heart to beat faster. Blood flow to the internal organs and upper body is shut down by 80% so that more blood gets to the legs and to the heart. Deep breathing brings in more air. Blood vessels in the legs dilate 400% to accommodate the increased flow of blood. All of this enables a person to run long distances." Christian Body Relationships are likewise incredibly complex when orchestrated by Christ who is the head.
