This month we will be diving into the book of Jonah. The four week sermon series is called “Jonah: Going Big or Going Home?”
If you missed this past Sunday, July 3, 2016: read Jonah chapter 1. What does it mean when the “Word of the Lord” comes to you? Does it make you want to run the other way or run nearer to God? Think of everyday ways God may be calling you to be a light, a “Word-bearer” to someone who needs it the most.
Listen to Sunday’s sermon podcast entitled “Is America Running From God?” (Jonah 1:1-3)
Are We A Nation Running From God?
Rev. Mary Miller
Part 1 of July Sermon Series: “JONAH—Going Big or Going Home?”
Jonah 1:1-4 New International Version (NIV)
Jonah Flees From the Lord
1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: 2 “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”
3 But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord.
4 Then the Lord sent a great wind on the sea, and such a violent storm arose that the ship threatened to break up.
