Here's a great "return from exile" quote from Ezra 10:4 (free at bibleversestogo.com). Here's a post that talks more about what we can learn from the exiles when they returned to Jerusalem.

I should mention that Ezra gives this advice after much weeping and confession regarding the intermarriage of Jewish men with non-Jewish wives which ends with a call to send these "foreign" wives away. *Sigh*  Fortunately, the Spirit is still speaking and like any other sane Christian or Jew, I can only recommend Ezra 10:4 as a metaphor for dealing with "foreign" attitudes that have no place in the church, such as intolerance, racism, bigotry, hyper-nationalism, judgementalism, etc.
