Perhaps I can trace my thoughts over the past two weeks to conversations with my cousin Dave. He and his wife, Rachel, are missional artists in Köln, Germany. As a potter, his
of reclaiming broken clay is all about
redeeming the future
about brokenness and the impact of his work a few months ago.
Dave and Rachel spent a week with us this month while in the US on Home Assignment. I spent many hours talking with and listening to them as we shared about the struggles and brokenness in our lives through the eyes of The Potter of Jeremiah 18:1-4.
It seems my thoughts continue to dwell on these things. Am I centered on His Wheel? Am I willing to be formed into something that pleases The Potter? With all the pressures of life, can I even feel His hands molding me?

I know the video is 9 minutes.
Who has 9 minutes?
My prayer is that you will
yourself 9 minutes
and see how He transforms
us for His glory.
