Sitting by the blazing hearth: a simple pleasure that makes my heart glad. I love to watch the dancing flames, to hear the crackle of the burning wood, to feel the warmth that radiates into the room. So the wild force of fire, set loose by the strike of a match, becomes a source of heat and light and a power for good. I wonder if grace, the lived experience of God’s love, isn’t something like that.
