The Spiral of Life
Back now? Great! One of the things Glennon talked about this weekend was the idea that growth is linear is really a rather masculine idea. She talked about how in her life, growth is more like a circle, as she faces the same dragons over and over. And a friend of hers told her: it’s not a circle, it’s a corkscrew, bringing you ever closer to God.
I love this. It’s akin to my own idea that growth is a labyrinth. What do you think? Do you feel like you are constantly facing the same dragons repeatedly? Or do you think the linear model is more accurate?
