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 join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
