Abide: Jeremiah Part I

  • I remember the first time that someone told me I was offering a Jeremiad. I hadn’t completed some work that was due and the professor I worked for told me that he didn’t need a Jeremiad, I could just finish the project in the next few days. The professor wasn’t happy about it, but he provided a way for me to make sure I knew that the error wasn’t catastrophic.

     In some ways, my experience was a lot like the Book of Jeremiah, where what had happened wasn’t ideal but there was a promise that I could find myself in good graces again. We’ll discuss these feelings of melancholy and hope, faith and acceptance, and much more on today’s episode of “Abide: A Maxwell Institute Podcast.”
