The small door- update


The irony of the small door

I’m researching gatehouses and “doors within doors”. It’s fascinating! England was sure fortified back-in-the-day!

Do you see a metaphor when you see this visual?

What are your thoughts or perspective?

(This is no quiz; there are no right answers. Just looking for your take on this visual)

Update– p.m.

The visual/sense I got from this door image was unexpected. The metaphor was of the big door being too hefty to push open, but the small door–the less grand–the meager entry point is the truest way in. It’s the humble door, and going inside will require a blow to the pride, or be what some would considered undignified. For growth and progress, the small door is needed. We don’t have the strength for the huge one, but a way  is provided for us,–if we can get to the point of seeing it.

  1. I love the picture–and the metaphor . . .

    I wonder. Are the varied understandings of the Christian faith (denominations, theological traditions, spiritual traditions, whatever) “little doors” in the “big door” that is Jesus (who said, “I am the door of the sheep”)? We can “get in” through any/many of them . . .

    It’s too hot to do more than wonder. 🙂
