After the warm and sunny weather of yesterday, the change to gloom seems to reflect our feelings in response to the announcement of extended closures until April 30. We just got the email from school that we will continue "virtual instruction" until that time with the hopes that we can return to be together after that (I have my doubts and wouldn't be surprised if we don't return the rest of the school year).
It's easy to feel out of control. We are people who desire order, routine...especially as Presbyterians! But it is in times like these that we are reminded of who is really in control. We are the clay in the hands of the Master Craftsman and potter.
I came across a blog from a different denomination (The Christian Reformed Church in North America) where one of the contributors offers some insight into this idea of God as the potter. If you have a moment, check it out here:
I hope this performance of a favorite song of mine, "The Potter's Hand," provides you some comfort and inspiration as we journey through this 5th week of Lent toward Holy Week together. (And apologies for any mistakes - I don't usually sing solo and play for myself at the same time!)
Blessings to you all,
