Jonah and the Amazing Mercy of God

Sometimes, the biblical stories that we feel the most familiar with are the most important to revisit, as our familiarity is what can actually obscure the surprising and radical truths these stories communicate. So it is with the well-known story of the Hebrew prophet Jonah, who rebelled against God's call on his life, only to be swallowed by a fish before eventually proclaiming God's word to a shockingly-repentant Nineveh. Seen anew, Jonah's narrative shocks the reader through the anti-heroic actions of its main character, the incredible receptivity of God's words by those who are "outside" the boundaries of God's people, and most especially the profound mercy and compassion of God upon everyone the story touches. Join us for a 5-week journey through this potent and surprising story.
