(Archived on Monday - August - 30/08/2010 )

  Go To Previous Record Go To Next Record
  Photo was taken yesterday at Dungarvan, Co.Waterford (Irl)  
 
Yesterday was a great occasion as thousands of cyclists gathered for lots of cycling as part of the legendary Sean Kelly tour. One had the option of 10km, 90km or 160km. The cyclists in the photo including me!! were heading for the start of the 90km route.

'To me, God lives within me, God lives in my heart. The image of the potter is what summarises my image of God. We are in daily formation. Every single day, God moulds and fashions me.' ~Nina Isabelle Chillion

Pottery has been around for thousands of years. Each potter has their own unique style and finished product. But they all start with the same lump of clay. It may not look much but it has huge potential. The potter patiently works with it, allowing it take shape. Even if it falls out of shape, the potter will patiently start again. It is no surprise that God has been compared to a potter. Like a potter God works with us gently. There is recognition of our uniqueness and the something special which we all have. Like clay that sometimes fall out of shape, we also make mistakes but that is never a reason for God to push us to one side. We are in daily formation, constantly trying to do our best, growing and maturing, while learning new things about ourselves and others. Are you open to this ongoing formation today?
