14/366 - "Lone Candle"

(F/3.5, 100mm, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, Canon 7D)

At the end of the Friday chapel service during camp, they turn down the lights and pass the "Light of Christ" throughout the church.  Everyone, even the children have a 5 inch candle that they carry back to the cabin line.  With their cabin mates they melt wax on the ground to hold the candles and they form a cross.  As the candles burn down to the ground it forms a giant pile of wax.

I think it is fitting that as many of us head to Father John's memorial service this afternoon, my picture for  today is that of a lone candle.
