A Man, who regularly attended meetings suddenly, without any notice, stopped participating. After a few weeks, one very cold night, the leader of that group decided to visit him.
He found the man at home alone, sitting in front of a fireplace where a bright fire burnt. The Man welcomed the leader. There was great calm and silence. The two men only watched the dancing flames around the logs that crackled the fireplace.

After a few minutes, the leader, without saying a word examined the logs that formed the fire and selected one of them glowing most brightly of all, and removed it to the side with a pair of tongs.

Then he sat down again. The host was paying attention to everything, fascinated. Before long, the lone’s long flame subsided, until there was a momentary glow and the fire soon went out in a short time. What was a previously bright light and heat had become nothing more than a black and dead piece of wood.

Before preparing to leave, the leader, with the tongs picked up the useless piece of wood and placed it again in the middle of the fire. Immediately the hitherto lifeless piece of wood was rekindled, fueled by the light & heat of the burning coals around it.

When the leader reached the door to leave, the host said: ‘Thank you for your visit and for your beautiful lesson. I’ll return to the group soon.’

Why is a group important in our lives? Because each member that withdraws takes fire and heat from the rest.

It’s worth reminding the group members that they are a part of the flame. It’s also good to remind us That we are all responsible for keeping each other’s flame burning.

And we must promote unity among us, so that the fire is really strong, effective, and lasting.

Let's Keep the Fire Burning.
