A Prophet’s Struggle with God
Wed. February 15-22, 6:30-7:30pm. Led by Patrick Messer.
The story of Jonah that often gets told in children’s Bibles ends with a freshly regurgiteated prophet preaching in Nineveh. Jonah finally does what he is supposed to, the people of Nineveh turn to God, and the everything ends happily ever after. But the book of Jonah doesn’t end that way. The rest of the story is one in which this prophet struggles to accept the mind-shattering love and inclusivity of God.
