Fun Fridays – October 8, 2021

Enjoy today’s video of master potters at work. Seven minutes of extraordinary creativity and artistry.

“I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand” (Jeremiah 18:3-4; Romans 9:21; Isaiah 64:8).
