John Meacham, senior editor of Newsweek magazine, wrote an editorial in the June 21, 2010, publication titled, "Primary Examples For Our Daughters."

Though there had been alienation and rejection from both sides in the past, the prophet describes us as God’s delight. That connection is also emphasized in Paul’s oddly graphic description of church folks as body parts — we need each other because we are not a living, breathing body if we are somehow separated.
