If we know Smokey the Bear, we know he implores us: “Only YOU can prevent forest fires.” Fires can be terrifying. Especially when out of control.
But, with care and attention, they can keep us alive. They can be purifying… even regenerative.
In our scripture reading this Sunday, Luke 12:49-56, we find out that Jesus came to bring fire. In fact, it was a burden to him to know that this fire would be intense and confrontational… and, it had to blaze.
Hope to see you this Sunday at 10am to learn about the kind of blaze Jesus brings and all that it means for our lives.
