In This shabbat message Warren talks from the book of Lamentations chapter 1. The title of the message comes from Lamentations 1:3 - For the believer living in the diaspora among the heathen there is no rest. Lam 5:5 - There is no rest outside the land. Shalom and be blessed!
You have to feel for Baruch. He had attached himself to Jeremiah and his ministry. I do wonder what he must have thought about as they embarked on this incredible journey together. Even though God was pretty clear with His instructions and what they were to expect, I doubt he could envision early on how it all would develop. I dare say, he might have had second thoughts.

Jeremiah reached the point where he had enough. He was considering calling it quits. He pours out his soul when he says: “I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name.” Jeremiah 20:9
