Since the dawn of time immemorial, humans have gathered around fires for protection and warmth. Their comforting glow drove away the cloak of darkness and provided shelter from the frigid night. People cooked and meditated on the mysteries of the universe around fires. The YAG is no exception to this: Nothing attracts more young adults to one spot than a large fire.
…And the promise of food!
And good eats!
As well as fellowship and merriment all around.
And we even collaborated on an art project, advancing knowledge and contributing to the enlightenment of humanity.
“We are standing on the shoulders of giants.” – Fr. Eichman
Bonfires are starting to become a semi-regular staple for the YAG, providing an intimate and informal atmosphere so that we “may all be one”.
Pax. And be well.
