Jeremiah and the City’s Shalom

      5 Comments on Jeremiah and the City’s Shalom

As we celebrate the hope of resurrection this Easter season, we want not to forget the pain of the cross. The prophetic voice of Jeremiah calls us to remember the pain of the past and present, but also to look for signs of new life and resurrection. Each week, we will juxtapose two scriptures from Jeremiah, one of lament and weeping and one of comfort and hope.

Seek the shalom of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its shalom you will find your shalom.

We will again examine our theme verse for 2014 from Jeremiah 29: 7: “Seek the shalom of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its shalom you will find your shalom.”  Join us as we examine what this ancient, weeping prophet in Babylonian exile has to say about the shalom (peace, wholeness, or welfare) of this city in Harrisonburg.
