Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench. When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord -- he is God! The Lord -- he is God!” --1 Kings 18:38,39

Through years of neglect, wounds, or even willful sin, all men will find themselves entangled in situations and burdened with shame or guilt that they don’t always know how to deal with.  At a F.I.R.E. Retreat, men are encouraged to examine their lives and are invited to lay their burdens down to be RENEWED.  That is why Jesus came, after all, to carry our sins away and relieve us of our burdens.
