Fire is an amazing thing. Beautiful, purifying, helpful, and destructive. It has been used to keep people warm, to cook food, and to help keep things clean by burning the waste. It can also be destructive by taking homes, forests, and lives when it gets out of control. We need to learn about, and respect, this element of God’s creation.
