CS Lewis taught us in Meditations in a Toolshed the difference between looking at and looking along.
When looking at Parkinson’s disease it appears dark and gloomy.
But, looking along, in both directions, the disease is illuminated by the world view of Christ’s light.
When looking along as a Christian, I can observe the Theodrama, the redemptive drama in which I play a part.
The brilliance of God provides the appropriate stage lighting to set the mood and tone.
The audience watches me to rate the playwright. My performance can glorify the author of all things or I can fall short and the director encourages me to do better.
I am never fired by the playwright and director, they again hand me the holy script for more study.
