Another friend praying with my wobbly leg and I talked of ‘balance’- if the person is on one leg and not balanced this can lead to the other part withering through no use. This is significant to me, but also in the issue of midwifery, of students, of people. Isn’t this all about what I am talking about- that spiritual needs must be met in balance and in order to balance the whole person? That all parts of their branch and selves must be used? I feel out of ‘kilter’ at the moment and my scales are tipped.
