How shall we sing the Lord's song
in a foreign land?
If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget its skill!
Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you,
if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy!
Exiles is our 6-week fall 2018 sermon series that walks through the first 7 chapters of the book of Daniel. Through the series, we’ll see how the Judean exiles were called to be a faithful presence in Babylon and we’ll draw on the implications of how we can do that today in our current cultural moment.
