Mark 13-14

Earthen Clay Pot

Earthen Clay Pot

Poem – Valmai Redhead
Mark 14:3 & 13

My body −
a clay pot
made from the earth

shaped and moulded
unseen in the depths
fashioned in secret
intricately turned
on a womb-shaped wheel

fired in the kiln of life
for a time
decorated with peculiar experiences
emerging to be a unique vessel
like no other

holding a treasure of being
until one day
cracked and chipped, the vessel shatters
releasing its treasure into eternity
as the earth opens her hands to receive again
my clay pot
my body.

We have set this website up to share the resources from the book ‘The Illustrated Gospel Project’,
plus the extra stuff that we couldn’t fit in the book.
But there is still room! Room for what you and your community of faith might create in response to God’s creative Word at work, and at play in your midst.
So if you create a drama, a song, a prayer or a responsive reading, we’d like you to share it.
