Two Fires

by Fr. Jeff

I’ve always loved fire. Whether it’s in a fireplace in the winter time, in a fire pit on the back porch, or a bonfire in a field, fire has a way of bringing people together. Perhaps that’s why I love it.

Today, our youth group took a caroling hayride through town. We stopped at a number of homes to bring some Christmas cheer.

Capping off the night, we gathered for a bonfire.

As I reflect on the graces of this day, I notice that I left one fire to go to another.

Two fires. One love.

Help me to enkindle the fire of Your love in the hearts of your people. Use Your fire to draw us together in Yourself, that Your light may burn brightly within.
