New Sermon Series: Begins on August 11th

This Stinks: Studying Jonah 

       Jonah's story is simple.   Jonah, a child of God, ran from his Father. God pursued his child on the wings of a storm.   The storm, of course, forced Jonah to reconsider the path he had chosen.  This short book is his record of those difficult days.  As he reflected back on those events he confessed that he felt abandoned by God: "I said, 'I have been banished from Your sight."

We have a tendency to think that during times of crisis God is distant or removed.   Sometimes we even interpret His silence as indifference. Jonah reminds us that God's presence enables us to endure the trials we face -- even the ones we create.
