A Future of Hope

The powerful words of Jeremiah 29 challenge and encourage all who grapple with the reality of loving their enemies

what God imagines. “For I myself know the thoughts that I am thinking concerning you–an utterance of the LORD–thoughts of shalom and not of evil, to give you a future of hope” (Jeremiah  29:11).

Just this is the beginning of the church’s ministry of reconciliation, and thus our task for this day and this lifetime: to stand together in a listening place, an envisioning place, strengthening each other to share God’s thoughts of shalom and move together into a future of hope.
