Sermon: Shaped by God


(September 8, 2013) Jeremiah uses the image of a potter sculpting a vessel as a rich metaphor for how God forms and re-forms us. His metaphor, however, is not a personal one as we usually imagine it; Jeremiah describes God as shaping humanity. In a time when we are poised on the brink of warfare yet again, we pray that we might be re-formed by God’s hands. (Jeremiah 18:1-11; Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18)
