There is an old Bruce Hornsby song with the lyric: “that’s just the way it is; some things will never change.” The Me Too movement and Black Lives Matter are testimony that things can change, that we can make society a little more just and peaceful. Change is also possible in our own lives. The prophet Jeremiah visits the potter’s shed and sees an image of God’s transforming power: Says the LORD, like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand. We are not stuck with our faults — I’m not a patient person, I’m angry, I’m a procrastinator — for God can re-shape us into the loving and compassionate people we are meant to be. God isn’t finished with us yet.
