John Chandler invited us to imagine what it means to be a Creative Minority through the eyes of Jeremiah 29.
Quotes and links mentioned:
- “What Jeremiah was saying was that it is possible to survive in exile with your identity intact, your appetite for life undiminished, while contributing to the wider society and praying to God on its behalf. Jeremiah was introducing into history a highly consequential idea: the idea of a creative minority.” — Jonathan Sacks, On Creative Minorities
- “Living with gospel resilience in the corrosive soil of Western culture requires a posture of living as a creative minority. Throughout history God has replenished cultures, through the witness of minorities of believers who hold true to their beliefs while blessing the surrounding culture. It is to this position we must return.” — Mark Sayers
