In this online seminar Pastor Brian Koela, in conversation with David Cloete, explores Jeremiah's letter to the exiles (Jeremiah 29:1-8) in particular his injunction that they "seek the peace of the city". What might it mean for us to seek the peace and prosperity of our own very different cities, paying particular attention to the call to repentance and shalom (peace)?
