Treasure in Clay Jars

Treasure in Clay Jars

This photograph was taken by Callaway Stephanson-Pate in 2008, while traveling in Turkey with her family. It was shot through an open window, into the Church of St Mary in Ephesus. It makes for a great Advent image, both because of its reference to Mary, and on account of its evoking of Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 4:7, that “We have this treasure in clay jars.” That which looks so simple and plain might contain the very thing the world is longing for.
