  • The Politics of Exile

  • Opening to the Enemy

  • Sermon Starters (Proper 23C)(2019)

    by Stan Mast
    Is there a place for rebelling against the powers that be, as the false prophets urged the exiles to do? Is Jeremiah’s advice applicable for every situation, or was it directed to a specific time and place? One thinks of Jews in Nazi concentration camps, their twentieth century Babylon. Does Jeremiah 29:4-7 apply to them? In my Dutch Reformed circles we are mourning the death of Diet Eman, author of the memoir, Things We Could Not Say. She was a survivor of WW II and Nazi atrocities. She joined the Dutch underground and fought the Nazis with everything she had. Her recent death was commemorated with great praise and honor for her courageous rebellion. Was she disobeying the will of God as enunciated in Jeremiah 29?...

  • Bloom Where You're Planted

    by Jim McCrea
    Cole Richards, writing in Voice of the Martyrs magazine, tells the story of a missionary couple named Ron and Donna who served for more than 35 years in the Central African Republic, where “more than 1 million of the country’s 5 million residents have been forced from their homes by ongoing conflicts.” They have gone through tremendous adversity, including Ron being taken hostage at one point early in his ministry there. But they have also helped to plant more than 80 churches in areas that had previously not heard of Jesus and they built an aviation base in the eastern part of the Central African Republic to help unite their far-flung mission field. Ron and Donna chose to build in that portion of the country since Ron described it as “a haven of security” within a tumultuous region. But all that changed on Good Friday 2017...

  • Seeking the Welfare of Our Cities

    by Matthew Ruffner
    Tom Cousins, a very successful real estate developer in Atlanta, read an article in The New York Times published back in the mid-1990s that claimed that the majority of New York's prison population could be traced back to eight neighborhoods in New York City. Mr. Cousins thought that that couldn't be - a majority of New York's prison population couldn't be populated by eight neighborhoods in one city. So he picked up the phone and called the weekend editor at The New York Times. And he said, "I have just read the most alarming statistic in the newspaper this morning. That number can't be true." The weekend editor assured Mr. Cousins that the statistic was true and he urged him to call the chief of police in Atlanta, because he believed that there was a similar statistic in every major U.S. city in America. Mr. Cousins, being Mr. Cousins, picked up the telephone and called the Atlanta chief of police and shared the statistic that he had just read in The New York Times. The chief of police in Atlanta said, "Mr. Cousins, I could trace the majority of Atlanta's jail population back to even fewer than eight neighborhoods. I could trace the majority back to about four, with one neighborhood being the main culprit -- that's the East Lake Commons neighborhood." Mr. Cousins said, "I can't believe that the majority of the prison population here in Fulton County comes from one neighborhood. And you're telling me that neighborhood is just east of where I live? I want to go and see that East Lake neighborhood." The Chief of Police said, "Mr. Cousins, that is not a good idea, it's really dangerous. In fact, our officers have stopped patrolling that neighborhood. They call it Little Vietnam." Mr. Cousins said, "With all due respect, Chief, I've got to go see it."...
