Sunday’s first reading is from chapter 23 of the Prophet Jeremiah. We are again reminded that God desires for us to be safe and free from fear. We can be free from fear and anxiety when we rest in God’s love and desire for us.
I myself will gather the remnant of my flock from all the lands to which I have driven them
and bring them back to their meadow; there they shall increase and multiply.
I will appoint shepherds for them who will shepherd them so that they need no longer fear and tremble;
and none shall be missing, says the LORD.
