Apparently my blogging brain is down.

I'm thinking the 'church as tapestry' thing has been overdone, though it is a good metaphor--different thread woven into a whole. On the other hand, the more I think about church as body--with all the biological stuff that brings to mind (being a once upon a time biology major)--the more I think about this, the more think. I know that sounds repetitive, but that's the point. There is so much to the body--interaction, connectedness, nutrition, sensation, fighting infection, resting, working, how when one part hurts or feels pleasure the whole body feels it--that the thinking is endless. Of course, one can overdo a metaphor, but I'm fairly sure the average local church has not even scratched the surface of this one.
