“Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I [the Lord] have carried you into exile.”Preaching from Jeremiah 29:4-11, the Rev. Darren A. Ferguson, our guest preacher, is a pastor of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church in a neighborhood of Far Rockaway, NY, and long a voice for the formerly incarcerated. He defines, in strong and compelling terms, what it means to seek the welfare of the city. He understands the church as not just a “feel good” place but a place to be on assignment, called to action.
