Something to meditate on from CQOD:
"In his enthusiasm, the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual, but through individuals living together as one body, each supplying the deficiencies of the others. ~J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), Making Men Whole 
Just a reminder that we, in and of ourselves, cannot "go it alone" as a Christian, but need all the other facets of this jewel we call the Body of Christ in order to reflect Him fully. Amen.
