Living In Exile I: Living in a New Narrative
Jeremiah 29: 1:1-13
We are brought by Jesus out of exile, but Scripture makes it clear that we still live in exile, as foreigners in the world. How do we live in the culture without being in the culture? How do we live fully here—“planting gardens, building houses,” as God describes it—while living with longing and hope for a world re-born? In this message, we explore the biblical concept of exile as we launch a new series on living well in exile, in whatever form we may encounter it.
