Ready for a whale of a tale? In this true Biblical account of a man named Jonah, we follow him as he runs from what the Lord has called him to do.

Given a message from God to warn the wicked people of Nineveh of coming destruction, instead, Jonah takes off on a boat to get as far away from the city of Nineveh, and from God, as possible. After purchasing a ticket to sail to a faraway land, a terrible storm arises, and the ship’s crew realize they have no choice but to throw Jonah overboard to save themselves.

Sinking into the sea, a great fish swallows Jonah, where he sits in its belly for three days. While there, Jonah repents, asking the Lord to forgive him. The fish eventually spits him up onto dry land, and the Lord once again sends him with His message for the Ninevites. This time, Jonah obediently goes to declare God’s warning of coming destruction for their wicked ways. But, rather than be grateful when the people of Nineveh repent and cry out to the Lord, Jonah becomes angry and sulks. God, then, lovingly reminds Jonah that ALL people are important to Him, and there is no one He will not forgive if they will just call upon His name.

Next week- Please be sure to join us next week when we learn about the man who boldly volunteered for service, saying, “Here I am! Send me.”
