Treasure In the Rough
Beach glass begins as something whole and yet discarded. As it is tumbled by the sea, it is broken and polished until it becomes a treasured “mineral gem.” Suffering is a part of life – none of us escape it. When pain comes and brokenness enters our lives, Jesus is ready and willing to reach out to touch and remind us of the Treasure that we all are–worthy of new life in the midst of hopelessness. But healing may not be enough … restoration to the community is necessary too.
