Jeremiah 18:1-11

Pentecost +15 - Year C

Jeremiah 18:1-11

So good of G*D to give direction to a revelation, a looking at the world and seeing new connections. It happens a potter's house is a great place to find metaphors. Any number of them have been noted.

A significant part of this passage is the implication that we might also be called by G*D to specific locations where a revelation might be caught. Consider all that has needed to conspire together to get you to the spot where you are. What important metaphor can you look around and see at hand or listen to right now and hear a new melody? Can you remember to repeat a search each of the next four hours?

Not so good of G*D to give direction to a grand curse, a looking at the world around (one's image) and attending more to a wobble than a graceful of line. A potter's house is also a great place to find fired up certainties whose only possible change is that of breakage.

May you learn from G*D that changing your mind about the good you intended is not a healthy response, no matter what the provocation.
