#rethinkchurch: settle

Broken, yet settled beautifully into and arising from the earth. This can be said of the clay pot and the flowers growing in its center.

Where we end up, or certainly where we find ourselves, might not be where we planned or hoped. But that doesn’t mean beauty and growth cannot come from the brokenness we have encountered along the way. Perhaps this is the means of authentic beauty and life well lived, one that, in spite of the atrocities of life, goodness still comes up out of the mess.

To me, this broken and beautiful image portrays the good news of Jesus Christ.
