Exile and the Way Home
Big Idea: Home is found in the worship of God and the winning of others.
  • Reason for Exile 
  • Hope in Exile 
  • The way of Exile
Snapshot: I will be looking at the idea of home as a longing that is in all of us. An ideal home is where we find security, safety, love acceptance and deep relationships. Israel shares this longing as they were ripped from their home and brought into exile. In Jeremiah's letter, he gives them hope and instruction on how to live while away from home. In a similar fashion, we can find a relational home when we have proper worship of God and when we seek the flourishing and winning of our city and the people that live in it.
