sermon Reflections

This passage (from Jeremiah 18:1-11) can and should speak into our own lives as individuals and in our families.  Old patterns, unhealthy ways, might linger.  But what has happened in the past does not have to be repeated.  We too can go back to the potters wheel and start over. New beginnings are possible.  Grace and forgiveness can be extended.  Courage can be mustered and new commitments can be entered.

Rev. David Colby  / Read the Full Sermon Open to Change” from September 9, 2019.
