Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. Jeremiah 29:7

“Change one word in Jeremiah’s charge, and it becomes a very real challenge for my congregation: ‘Seek the shalom of the neighborhood where I have sent you. . . . and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its shalom you will find your shalom.’”

“You Better Not Shop Around,” Stan Wilson, Theolog, 2007.
