The scripture reading for this Sunday was Jeremiah 18. The passage below was on the front of our order of worship.
The image presented in this Sunday's lectionary text from Jeremiah is of a potter toiling over clay - creating and destroying in an endless process of generation and ruination. The prophet Jeremiah watches this process and imagines God as the potter and the house of Israel as the clay. Might we look into the potter's house and see where our imaginings make comparisons? Personally, I see a metaphor for faith, and faith formation and transformation.
