Rekindle the Flame
Renewing Purpose and Passion in Work

“And if each of us could use our daily work as kindling for the fire in our individual hearts, the sigh we would sound at the end of a long day could resonate like song that could make the angels weep.  Let’s rekindle that flame … let’s use this day together to rekindle that flame.”

~ Denise Bissonnette (Final lines of her poem Rekindle the Flame)

It is said that the coal that has been an ember is easily kindled.  This keynote provides the gentle but deliberate breath to rekindle the fire that originally brought people to the important work they are doing.
