Support Each Other

Two GirlsMembers of the Household Body need to support each other in the Christian body. Two killer whales amazingly swim alongside another that has become sick and cradle it on their backs so it can breath the air at the surface until it recovers. 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 reveal. A team from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London found the birds match the wing beats of others to help reduce drag and stay in unison and make flight as easy as possible." When the lead bird tires from the wind's buffeting, it drops back and another replaces it. In mist or clouds, they honk to locate one another. By flying together, rather than singly, they cover much greater distances.✞

The Body Adjusts

ArmThe "Minneapolis Star and Tribune" ran an article on how the body of a conditioned runner reacts 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.
