The Potter's Revolution
John Dreyer

The potter became the clay
when God’s grace inhabited
the woman, formed an earthen
vessel in likeness of a servant,
washer of feet, cheek turner,
healer; not the desired rebel warlord.
His revolution birthed in a stable
while angels sang alleluia;
climaxed on a cross while
the earth shook and rocks split;
cheated death forever while
we mourned and doubted.
Rejoice with the angels:
God’s grace walks
among us bringing peace like
rain that breaks the drought.
