Thoughts from Toby
I love mosaics. I think they're one of the coolest works of art that there is. I love that hey bring together the "big picture" and the "individual parts." Mosaics succeed in their splendor because of both of these things. If it weren't for the big picture mosaics would just be a bunch of random pieces of glass. Yet, if it weren't for the individual pieces, the bigger picture couldn't come together the way that it does. This is similar to how the body of Christ works. There are many parts, much like a mosaic, but only one body. We come together individually, with all of our different quirks and opinions, yet we all make up one collective group. We may, as pieces of the mosaic, look different than one another, but we're all part of the same portrait. The mosaic of Christian belief is represented by numerous pieces of the puzzle. Yet we all serve the same God. We come together and form part of the same body; the Body of Christ. May we seek to be a shining example of what it means to be a part of this wonderful mosaic of faith.
“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.”
1 Corinthians 12:12
