From a grandpa’s last steps to a baby’s first steps, circularity can be seen in the all phases of life. The Grandpa’s last steps were taken through wisdom, while the baby’s steps were taken with the ignorance and innocence of a child. While circularity may be considered cut and dry, one’s experience or inexperience is essential to their roles in the circle of circularity.

Spirituality in Healthcare The Age of Enlightenment shook the foundation of a world reliant on religion and its authority over the populace, who found security in being directed how to think and what to believe. During the period of enlightenment, science and technology quickly gained popularity, convincing the believers of their mind’s capabilities, teaching them to think for themselves, and essentially supplanting the church as the central authority. Where once spirituality performed a substantial role in the overall health of the patient, the practicality of science gave people something tangible to put their faith in and spirituality in healthcare was set aside and forgotten. It was not until recently that researchers began to question and study the importance of spirituality in the healthcare environment, and
The mid-19th Century saw an evolution in reform and religious sentiment. Up to the 1830s, most reform revolved around Protestant evangelism and traditional religious and social thought. However, the 1840s and 1850s saw the creation of new, more ambitiously reforming movements. One of these movements was spiritualism. Generally, it was the belief that an individual could talk to spirits and seek counsel from them.
POSITIVE SPIRITUAL ENCOUNTERS:- Positive spiritual encounters are those a person, people, families or congregations meet up with when they experience the presence of the Lord. For instance, in the tabernacle they could not stand by reason of the glory of God or when Apostle Peter and John experienced the glory of God on the mountain top and Peter didn’t want to come down anymore, but asked the Lord if they could pitch-up tents to stay up there forever.
