Ogden combines 38 individual paintings highlighting different body parts to become one work. Inspired by Paul’s discourse to the Corinthians, Ogden finds value in each member fulfilling its purpose to benefit the whole (1 Corinthians 12:12–27). "God finds joy in our differences, our unique gifts," Ogden notes. Differences add value to communities, especially church communities.

"The gospel of Jesus Christ gives me knowledge that I am part of something beautiful, purposeful, and powerful."
