Apologies that yesterday's reflection didn't get to you.

Lent day 29


Theme: Clay


Jeremiah 18:1-6

The Lord told me, “Go to the pottery shop, and when you get there, I will tell you what to say to the people.”

I went there and saw the potter making clay pots on his pottery wheel. And whenever the clay would not take the shape he wanted, he would change his mind and form it into some other shape.

Then the Lord told me to say:

People of Israel, I, the Lord, have power over you, just as a potter has power over clay.

Reflection prompts

  • What relationships and events in your life have shaped you?
  • Where was God in that?


Great potter, if I am clay, then I fear I am being molded by the world. I fear that I am in the hands of news feeds, social media, to-do lists, and social pressures. However, what I want is to be clay in your hands. I want to be shaped by you. I want to see your artist's signature on me and know that I am yours. So do what you do best. Kickstart the potter’s wheel. Start this pot over and mold me back toward you. Amen. —Prayer by Rev. Sarah Are | A Sanctified Art LLC |
