Resistance is the theme for January. Going through the Potluck line last Sunday, I overheard several people commenting on how they were already about to break their New Year’s resolution. Just over a week into the New Year, have you resisted the temptation to break your New Year’s resolution, or did you resist making a New Year’s resolution, for fear of falling short of your hopes? In this month, when we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., we are reminded that even he admitted that resistance takes a movement. We need help and support in creating change. Our Fire Ceremony is one way we acknowledge together that change is difficult. Our ritual of release makes concrete our intentions to hold on to what is good and let go of the things that block us from the fulfillment we desire. What you choose to let go up in smoke is for your eyes only. The community is here to support you in your aspirations.
