No marketing expert would advise starting a website before it's polished and professional in appearance, or with a name that no one remembers or understands. And yet, here we are. Here's the short explanation.

Smooring is a Celtic term that has to do with keeping the hearth fire in tact. Each night, someone in the home – often the mother – arranged the coals in such a way that they would hold their heat until morning, when they could be used to stoke up the hearth fire again. Some of the coals would even be passed on to a daughter at marriage, ensuring the future of the fire.

This is a metaphor for our spirituality. A lifetime of faith is not one long blaze of glory. It is a cycle of seasons... of up and down, of light and darkness. But with regular tending, the spirit within (en) retains the quiet passion needed to live as God would have us live... and to pass that passion on to future generations.

Smooring En... tending the spirit within. It's not about marketing...it's about God's love.
