“The Lord sent me to prophesy against this house and this city.” (Jeremiah 26.12)

The words of ‘outsiders’ can be especially uncomfortable and challenging to the status quo. Nations that have got used to seeing war, poverty and environmental disaster as largely something that happens far away are shocked and disturbed by the images of refugees: those fleeing conditions we have helped to create, and who bring through their very presence a warning about the dangers of a divided world.
