A Letter to Grieving Exiles

Waking up to a world you hardly recognize is disorienting, confusing, and tragic. As we continue to process through grief and loss in our global pandemic moment, there will continue to be competing voices of “reason” from our political leaders, religious leaders, social leaders, medical professionals, journalists, family members, and those on the fringes. So who’s voice will you trust and what next step will you choose to take to restore your life with meaning and purpose? In other words, how do we move forward and where should we put our confidence to do so in uncertain times?

This week we have an opportunity to learn from the past by hearing the words of Jeremiah to grieving exiles not unlike us. When there is no going back and “normal” has been significantly altered for the foreseeable future, where do we turn and who do we trust? In God’s economy, hope is never lost.
