BEGIN BY FINDING A QUIET PLACE.
Begin by finding a quiet place where you can settle in a way that fosters deep peace and relaxation. Allow time for your mind to empty, your breathing to calm, and your spirit to open.
We are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.

“CHANGING THE ORDER”
Changing the order slightly, read each line of this verse slowly, pausing to take in whatever meaning or memory emerges for you in each line. Express gratitude for any insights, meaning, or reassurance you receive.

you are our potter
you are our potter and
you are our potter and we
you are our potter and we are
you are our potter and we are the
you are our potter and we are the clay
We are all the work of your hand
What was the most significant line for you and why?
What does it mean to you to be the work of God’s hand? For all of us to be the work of God’s hand?
PRAYER. You are our God. You have created us in your image, forming and re-forming us as you choose. Individually and as a congregation, we are the clay pots the potter has designed. Just as a potter delights in his or her work, you find joy and beauty in us, the work of your hand. Help us to see ourselves, each other and our congregation as you see us – unique, beautiful and infinitely valuable. AMEN.
TAKE A MOMENT OF SILENCE as you close.
