Jeremiah received the Lord’s word: Go down to the potter’s house, ________, and I’ll give you instructions about what to do there. So I went down to the potter’s house; he was working on the potter’s wheel. But the piece he was making was flawed while still in his hands, so the potter started on another, as seemed best to him. Then the Lord’s word came to me: ________, can’t I deal with you like this potter, declares the Lord? Like clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in mine, __________!
- Jeremiah 18:1-6 (Common English Bible)

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
