The book of Jeremiah is set during a period of instability and impending exile, highlighting many of the difficulties surrounding war and destruction. However, there are also reflections on hope, restoration, and renewal. In this presentation, Dr. Waters explores Jeremiah in light of the complex challenges related to the pandemic, as well as the history of racism in the U.S., revealing ways that the book offers insights for responding to and persevering through difficult circumstances.
