John Shore recently called the Burning of the Resentments. It's a new annual tradition at his church in California where each Easter weekend, they gather together various resentments, issues that people have had a hard time letting go, or something that they have been holding against someone (that they know they need to forgive).
If you have something that you would like to see go up in smoke that you have had a hard time letting go, leave a comment on that post, email him at email@example.com, or use the Contact Me form on his blog.
He will print out all of the resentments people send him electronically, and bring them to his church in Escondido, California, to be burned (he said he received over 200 last year), in a bonfire. The fire will happen at 8pm March 30 (Pacific time zone).
Despite the religious overtones, I actually think it's a good idea, a great symbolism, a way of symbolically letting it go, sending it up in smoke. I sent something in by e-mail myself.. What do you think of this idea?
