Cracked Pot... revisited

This morning at the Agape Centre, Shirley Krakowski, a second year Edgehill ministerial student wwho is on placement with us in Belfast South Methodist was leading a service where she was reflecting on II Corinthians 4: 7:
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
My mind went back to this short poem/pensee that I wrote when I was on a mission in Wicklow Methodist at the outset of my final year as a ministerial student:


Cracked, clay pot
moss-covered
containing hard cold earth
whilst beneath the surface
sits a seed-stored life
waiting...
