Cooperating Household Part209


Blue Colored EyeCooperating household parts operate as one. Jane as an ear in the Body of Christ is a very thoughtful person who always makes a positive contribution. Her skillful listening and attentive hearing help settle disputes between others. John as a hand is quite different. He is a doer rather than a talker in the Household Body. He responds generously and quickly to another's needs; mending a washing machine or carrying a bag of food to a needy family. God uses the cooperating household parts and the differences between Jane and John to complete his work.✞

Different Organs

handCooperating household parts can represent a different organ or a limb in the Mystical Body. Adrian Plass (1948-present) a British Anglican author in "Sacred Diary" humorously considers the various household part and their roles. "Anne started by saying that she thought she was probably a bit of dried skin on the elbow, but Edwin, bless him, said that he thought she was much nearer the heart than that. Thynn said he was a left shoulder blade for some obscure reason, and Norma Twill said she thought she might be a dimple. Couldn't think what I was, and dismissed Thynn's assessment of me as a small, unimportant vein in the right foot."
