Take from Life the Coals – Thoughts on Life, Fire, and Balance

led by Scott Owens

Our relationship with fire is complex. Like other elemental forms, fire has within it the power to both help and harm, and it can move from one to the other with a simple shift in the wind. Living with fire—both actual fire and the symbolic fire within us—requires a delicate balance and constant attention. The waning days of this challenging year may be a good time to reflect on all those fires, to find our balance, and to take from life the coals.
