Do I have to draw you a picture?

“Well, [pause] yes,” he said. [Pause again] “Sometimes you may have to.”

Since 65 percent of us are visual learners, you may have to draw a picture or a diagram at times to get your point across. You may have to map it out in a flowchart.

Take, for instance, the Serenity Prayer. Many of us know it, pray it, believe it works, take comfort in it, and yes, find serenity in it as well.

How much more do you think seekers of serenity might understand the Serenity Prayer if it came with a flowchart. Such as . . .serenity flow chart

God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I can not change, courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Wouldn’t a flowchart help us pinpoint the problem? Then we could follow the process to arrive at a place of serenity.

  1. As a person that prays daily for serenity and peace I have to tell ya, most of us that try to follow those words would get stuck in that flow chart and totally screw up our lives. Good try but no cigar on this one.
