Jesus walked from town to town teaching, and healing the sick. The people who had the benefit of his presence were truly blessed. But is that all over? Paul points out that it is not.
In today's reading Paul writes that we, all together, make up another body of Jesus. As the parts of the body of Jesus all worked smoothly together, so are we coordinated by the Holy Spirit who as the soul of this new body of Christ has us harmoniously working together.
