Proper 21, Year C, Old Testament Lesson
Scripture: Jeremiah 32:1-3a, 6-15
Today we jump to the end of the Book of Jeremiah. We hear him being undeterred from his mission. He is not letting go of what God has sent him to do. We hear a story of him buying land even though he is in prison. Why? Why is this important? Because “houses and fields and vineyards shall again be bought in this land.” Even though imprisoned and people think he is done for, Jeremiah continues to build up the kingdom of God.
