Was Jeremiah a Failure?.

This is an excellent article that has raised a number of issues for me!  I wonder – is it possible to be a successful ‘parish minister’ and still retain anything more than a tenuous link to an authentic prophetic calling?  The temptation to live a comfortable life devoid of controversy would seem to preclude it in some cases………….

Jeremiah was branded a failure in his lifetime.  Perhaps more of us should be content to be branded failures as measured by the standards of the world around us?  After all, whose judgement really matters?
