that's quite a definition for the church!

In one of this week's scripture readings, Ephesians 1:15-23, Paul offers a prayer that includes all kinds of teaching.

He asks that God would give us (well, the Ephesians, but we read ourselves in there, too...) a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we'd know God with "the eyes of our hearts."

Then, he talks about God's power, and, finally, mentions that the church is his body, and "the fullness of him who fills all in all."

That's a big job description, I think.

What do you think it would look like to be Christ's body, as the fullness of him who fills all in all?

(I'm wondering especially what it would look like in the little details...)
