NO GRADUAL GROWTH

Spiritual growth is more crisis and struggle than being gradually elevated.
"Spiritual growth is rarely a gentle, gradual ascent, but instead is a series of crises, conflicts, kairos moments, through which we are confronted with threats, choices, challenges, to which we respond or fail to respond. Either way these crises do not leave us unchanged."

-- Kenneth Leech in In the Eye of the Storm, Harper Collins, 1992
