Search for identity

While in church today, I found myself considering the nature of finding our individual role and purpose in a community – or life – to the metaphor of parts of our bodies.  What if one of body parts kept questioning: what is my purpose? do I have to be just a thumb? Is there another chance for me? Should I stay with these fingers, or can I find a new group to be a part of?

Gifts Differing by Isabel Briggs Myers starts with a reference to the Bible and the premise that we are different, but like parts of a body have our own purpose and gifts.
