Rachel Raborn Norris

We are excited to announce that this year’s guest speaker for the WNALC Annual Gathering will be Rachel Raborn Norris of Joy Pottery in Bryan, Texas.

When the council began planning this year’s gathering and the discussion rolled around to possible guest speakers, several council members were quick to suggest Mrs. Norris, whom they had the pleasure of seeing when the women of their mission district gathered.

“O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.” – Jeremiah‬ ‭18‬:‭6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Rachel Norris is not surprised that she is a potter, but she is amazed at how God has used pottery in her life. She has been making pottery for over twenty years now. She and her husband own Joy Pottery in Bryan, Texas where they make and sell handmade, functional, stoneware. She loves to work with clay because it is an incredibly versatile material, so very individual and universal at the same time.

You are invited to come and learn more about the Heavenly Father by exploring a word picture He provides in His Word. Discover the richness of the layers of meaning in the portrayal of the potter and the clay by observing the work of a potter firsthand. You will be awed and amazed by the insights into the hand of God in your own life through this experience.
