Jeremiah is a prophet with heart and soul. As Rev Dr Monica Melanchthon reminded us, of all the prophets in the Hebrew Scriptures, Jeremiah’s story reveals him as a person. We experience the travails and hopes of Judah with passion in his experiences and words. Monica presented an introduction to Jeremiah and an overview of the lectionary texts for 2002 in her plenary session at our recent Worship Leader Training Day. A video of her rich and informative session is on Youtube and also available here.
Monica is an Associate Professor at Pilgrim Theological College and the University of Divinity. You can find out more about her teaching and research here.
