Bill spent last weekend in a booth helping fellow wood turners sell their creations at a local event. Some of the works of art (bowls, candlesticks, vases, and platters) were priced in the thousands. Shoppers appreciated the aesthetics of the pieces on display, while at the same time learning about the type of wood used, how segmented pieces were crafted using different types of wood, and how a live-edge on the natural wood was retained. I’m embarrassed to admit that more often than not I fail to recognize and appreciate God’s workmanship in fellow believers. Paul said, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph 2:10 NIV).
