Glaze as Gauze

The other day, as I was glazing bread bowls in a stormy blue glaze with a line of glazed pots on the shelf by the glaze buckets, I dropped a mug into the Stellar Rust glaze which then splashed all over the blue bread bowl.  I let out a few bad words, aware that now I had to wash the entire bowl and start again after a few days of drying -delayed now for some other firing.

Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God

“To a Pharisee who observed to perfection the purity laws, the idea of a bloody, naked Messiah, powerless and on display before everyone in his helplessness as he died, must have been beyond abhorrent.  It must have been incomprehensible.  But Paul had been protesting way too much.  In his soul he had always been a Jesus-follower.”
