The Potter and the Clay

 Ellis Lucas saw no hope of salvation in the world around him. His life had spiralled into years of addiction, a violent car wreck, almost losing his life in a house fire, mounting debts, incarceration, and a broken marriage. He was ready to surrender. Only then did he begin to see the signs around him—even in the cat he swore he’d kill—that there was purpose and promise.

Like clay, we are crafted by the Hands that hold us, cherish us and mold us, but we also make our decisions in a world full of vices we find hard to escape from.

The Potter and the Clay is an extraordinary and poignant testimony of a father to his children, but it is also the remarkable story of one man’s crafted deliverance into the Hands of God and how providence can turn ashes and the wreckage of a broken life into a work of heavenly art.

“I came to understand there is no human life beyond God’s infinite desire and passion to love and to know, and no situation, pain, sin or failure beyond His desire to forgive, heal and restore.” ~ Ellis Lucas

“This riveting story of a tragic life, countered by the faithfulness and love of God, serves as a life preserver for many who are sinking in the murky waters of hopelessness … a source of encouragement for the prodigal and those waiting for them to return home … raw, yet compelling; it reaches down to the gutter of human despair and rises to height of divine providence. The story of Ellis Lucas is a timely resource for healing and restoration for today’s lost and broken generation.”
~ Pastor Al Pittman, Calvary Worship Center
