Welcome to Anthrakia, a place in the cold to warm yourself. Anthrakia, is the Greek word for a "a pile of burning charcoal," used twice in the Gospel of John: first, to describe the charcoal fire, where Peter warmed his cold hands and, when asked, denied knowing Jesus three times(18.18); and second, to describe another charcoal fire Jesus lit and upon which he was preparing breakfast for his disciples by the Sea of Tiberias after His resurrection (21.9). Here, by this anthrakia, you're invited to to warm your hands and eat of something Jesus prepares for you.

Years ago Christianity Today included a regular column "As I Mused, The Fire Burned," titled from Psalm 39:3. I just uncovered this fine reflection on "musing" that you will enjoy.
