Jeremiah 18:1-6 I Caleb Schut

The text for this week is from Jeremiah 18. In this passage, the prophet Jeremiah is brought to the studio of a potter where he watches a potter working a piece of clay. It becomes a metaphor for God's people being shaped in the hands of God. It is at once both a frightening image of God's power and control over all people, and an encouraging image of a God who won't give up on any piece of clay. Caleb offers a way to think about how the image of God as a potter and we as clay is both encouraging and challenging.
