Beauty From Ashes

This is a photo of a table at a local government school here in Pretoria.  The two cans - which once held instant coffee powder - now serve as ashtrays.  It is an ugly sight, but every Friday morning for one hour it is transformed into a place of beauty.  Six women speaking six different home languages sit around this table for Bible Study.  Six women from six different cultures have set aside their personal differences to unite in prayer.  Six women with six different worldviews have found a common bond of being sisters in Christ.  And that transforms this scene into a place of beauty - beauty from ashes.
