Text: Jonah 1
Scripture reading: Jonah 1; Mark 4:35-41
The way God would have us go often looks dismal beside so many fantastic alternatives, so leaving God’s people behind can be a perennial temptation. The story of Jonah is an invitation to honesty about some of the most difficult aspects of Christian faith. Let’s read it together and see if we can’t find ourselves – and maybe God, too – in some new and hopeful ways.
