When you think about who some of the necessary people are in our community, who do you think of? Doctors and lawyers? Plumbers and electricians? Mayors and police officers? Teachers and social workers? What about when you think of who is a necessary part of God’s community, the Church? God says that when it comes to the Church, everyone He calls is an essential part.
