Jonah and telling the news (Week 5 Challenge)
In the final chapter (Jonah 4) we have seen that God doesn’t always respond how we want. Jonah responds in an angry, sulky manner to God.
Our challenge for this week is to reflect on how you
1) feel when God doesn’t do what you think he should in your life and the lives of others?
2) experience God’s mercy and forgiveness in your life?
3) would you respond to God’s closing question to Jonah?
You may find it helpful to do this with others in church.
Reading Denis McBride’s book Journeying with Jonah? You may want to read Part Five - The Unfinished Ending alongside this week’s reading.
Do share stories and reflections with us
You don’t have to share anything private but it would be great if you could share your reflections, stories and inspirations on our social media feeds using the hashtag #RuleOfLife #CalledToRead #JourneyWithJonah
And do encourage others to sign up to the rule of life and take part in this challenge. Your final reflection and challenge will come on Monday.
With our blessings
