One Body

Visual of the complex Mandelbrot Set
Visiting good friends in Cambridge this weekend, we attended their church this morning, and I was struck by the sermon on the symbolism of the 'body' used by the Apostle Paul to describe how church works best.

1 Corinthians 12 is where Paul symbolically describes the church as a body of inseparable members, and how each part, whilst honoured or respected to a lesser or greater degree, is nonetheless equally required in order for the body to work fully as one.

It struck me (without taking the analogy too far I hope), that the council could equally be considered one body of many members - each one performing its part, with some more responsible than others, but all equally required in order for the council to serve its purpose: to provide the residents of Waverley with the day-to-day facilites required.
