Stop, look and listen; there are sermons east, west, north and south.
Important ones are taught in clay down at the potter’s house.
There, working at a wheel by hand, an artist shapes a pot,
but if it doesn’t please it gets reworked right on the spot.
A church or nation in God’s hand is something like that clay:
in steady re-form-a-tion and re-work-ing every day.
Of per-ma-nent ex-is-tence we’ve no steady guarantee.
We live by loving guidance in a state of frailty.
