"...God likes a partership. It is up to us to help what God has begun.
No one wants this kind of burning, this kind of fire.
We want the field to remain as it once was,
in its pristine beauty,
just as we want life to remain as it once was.
But fire comes.
Though we are afraid,
it comes anyway, sometimes by accident,
sometimes on purpose,
sometimes for reasons that no one can understand
--reasons that are God's business alone.
But the fire can also turn everything to a new direction,
a new and different life, one that has its own strengths
and ways to shape the world."
C.P. Estes-- -the faithful gardener
