Jim Schettler works with churches and youth groups across the nation. Since 2020, he has noticed something about pandemics and elections. They are exposing what we truly believe! Just as with the Israelite captives in Babylon, our response to God’s instruction in Jeremiah 29 reveals whether or not we believe that circumstances and authorities are tools in His hands, working for good and not for evil. And what’s more, as world events expose the needs of unbelievers, they may turn to us for hope.
