An allegorical approach to life.

This fully Christian way of living requires a kind of allegorical approach to life and to people: believing and seeing that there is a deeper, spiritually important meaning beneath what’s on the surface, and understanding that everything that happens can be used for our spiritual profit, and that every person has a purpose, that all those we eincounter have, or can have, a purpose in our own lives.
