The Ripley organization
highlights the story of the unusual creature, the Nanomia Cara. It is a jellyfish,
and it lives in a huge cluster with other jellyfish. Some in the colony catch
the food, others digest the food for the rest, others provide propulsion and
still others lay eggs. They are interdependent. So is the church. Everyone has
something they can do to help the church fulfill its mission. We are the weaker
when anyone in the church does not do his or her part. We are strongest when
we all work together.
