Conversatio Divina

Fire God

Our God is a Fire God, revealed through the burning bush that spoke to Moses, the guiding flame of the Israelites, and the Pentecostal tongues of fire. In the dance of the Northern Lights and the gentle glow of a moonlit night, we see His fiery presence manifest.

In this reflection, spiritual director and contemplative, Becky Grisell encourages readers to recognize and welcome the presence of God as a consuming fire in their lives, allowing His love to refine, illuminate, and empower them to become bearers of divine light in the world. Grisell concludes the article with three practices for engagement and a poem.
