St. Paul uses the example of the body to teach unity in the midst of diversity.  We all have something to offer...and we all have something to learn from those around us.  May we work together - offering our best - to strengthen the Body of Christ.

David's lament for Saul and Jonathan reveals the complex nature of our grief. Saul's mix of good and bad qualities illustrate how we can mourn the loss of people that we meet in the messiness of life. In our own complicated moments of grief may we turn to the Lord and trust that Christ will untangle the knots.
