David Lowrie: The Potter’s House (Jeremiah 18:1-6)

David Lowrie, the senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Decatur, Texas asks how his listeners would describe God. He lists descriptors adults might use: good, merciful, kind and patient; holy, just and righteous; giving and forgiving; love; Father and King. Theologians and philosophers use descriptors like omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. Children describe God in more interesting ways.

What do descriptors of God like these mean during a time of pandemic and crisis? Lowrie explains their contemporary significance using a story from the book of Jeremiah.

This sermon was delivered on May 3, 2020, for the morning worship service of First Baptist Church in Decatur.
