Fire

What do you think of when you see a fire? This photograph was taken in Jamaica down by the water at Galina Breeze. I see the way the wood is stacked, and I think about the time it takes to gather and stack that wood. I see the smoke coming off of the fire, and I think about trying to figure out which direction the wind is blowing so that I’m not breathing in the smoke. I see the embers flying in the air, reminding me of the potential for fire to spread.
All of these are clearly rooted in past experiences. How we “see” the world is clearly dependent on our past experiences. And so, how we “see” God must also depend on our past experiences.
