You are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. - 1 Corinthians 12:27 (NIV)
As a young boy, I fantasized that my first day on the baseball team was the beginning of a major-league career. However, my father’s war injury had prevented him from teaching me how to play baseball so my inability to catch, throw, or hit relegated me to being a benchwarmer....
I will encourage someone to become an active part of the body of Christ.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
