Adrian Plass

Adrian Plass The Sacred DiaryGod rejoices in the differences in the body under the headship of Christ. The parts and organs each contribute to its overall effectiveness in the world. In "The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass," Gerald said he had thought of a good name for the church if all the denominations formed into a united group. "It's simple," he said, "We'll call ourselves the Maptocostal Angloholics!"

Rejoice in the Differences

HandSome denominational body parts are busier than others. The earlobes do not move or contain any vital organ yet they are still as much a part of the body as the heart or the legs. Whatever they do, the individual organs need one another and none is better or worse for the lofty or lowly task it performs. The hands, being the social agency of the body, are no better or worse than the uterus. Each limb and organ needs the other if the body is to function properly.

Teamwork and Cooperation

Bee HiveTeamwork and cooperation are also essential. Consider the disfunctional Tate family. There is Dick Tate, who wants to run everything, Ro Tate who tries to turn everything around and Adgy Tate who stirs up trouble wherever possible. When anything new is suggested, Hesi Tate and Vegi Tate pour scorn on any new ideas. Imi Tate copies everyone else, Devas Tate loves to upset things, and Poten Tate of course wants to be the absolute leader. However, Facili Tate, Cogi Tate and Medi Tate always save the day and get everyone pulling together. Every part of the Body of Christ should pull together.✞
