#BecomingOne: Submission is a Response Not a Role

I have yet to find a word that when used to discuss marriage can bring out more passion in people than this one. What word? Submission. Talk about a misunderstood word…but it’s one we all need to understand. Cindy and I will share our own journey as we worked through this word in our marriage.

When a male leads on the ballroom dance floor, he leads with strength and clear cues so his partner knows what steps she’ll take next. The female dancer has to place complete confidence and trust in her male counterpart, as much of the time she is being led to dance backwards. When Michael and Cindy first took dance lessons, they noticed that a lot of their interaction on the dance floor was very symbolic of their roles in marriage. Hear more in this podcast/broadcast about submission in marriage and on the dance floor.
