We are all unique individuals created in the image of God, and yet we struggle daily to live our lives as part of a community, be it a family, a workgroup, or even a church group. This paradox, like the four others illustrated in Paradox: the Psychology of Spirituality, along with all of the relationships we have and the ways in which they run often cause significant psychological and emotional difficulties that prevent us from living productively in community situations. These issues also hinder the development of our spirituality, our ability to recognize our place as sacred beings and our fulfillment in the depth of our relationship with God.
