Fire is easy to start and difficult to contain. It consumes the dross and refines the gold. It warmed the cave of the shivering infant, and later, in a courtyard, it warmed the hands of the friend who denied him. The small light in nativity’s cave dazzles with brightness in the cave of resurrection. Advent’s Candle becomes Paschal Fire. And our hearts are ablaze with new light, new love, once more.
– The Rev. Dow Sanderson is Priest-in-Charge of Church of the Good Shepherd, Summerville and chairman of the Commission on Ministry for the diocese
