Discovering Fire

I have always appreciated the life and wisdom of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. A strong, insightful Christian philosopher and a scholarly anthropologist, he once said:

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire.

May you begin that discovery today, exploring again the subtle nuances, the wide spaces and the vast depths of this sacred power. It comes as a holy gift. Let us not only treasure it; let us utilize it to the limitless bounds of God’s hopeful design. In doing so, let us once again discover fire 🔥. Amen.
