This Balkanized World



But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.


-- from the Book of Jeremiah



How odd that my attention, for some reason, was drawn to this line in the Old Testament lesson.I wonder what would happen, in this Balkanized world, if those of us who for whatever reason feel ourselves in exile, attempted to cultivate this attitude instead.
