Many of us are indeed drawn to candles' flickering light! They used to be state-of-the-art technology, once, and have had many centuries to become associated with light and warmth, celebration and memorial and romance.

Now we know better, especially with paraffin, derived from petroleum, coal, or shale.

Should we be burning fossil fuels for pleasure, decoration, and ritual? "What's Sacred Now?"
