  • Oh, that Jonah, Part 3

    So, this is the last time I’m writing about Jonah -- I promise. Maybe.
    It’s just that his story is so chock-full of things that smack me between my eyes.
    Last week I wrote about being inside the fish. This week, Jonah’s been spit out onto the shore, alive.
    My pastor said of this recently: “The grace of God spins you like a tornado, then it throws you out.”
    He added, “It throws you back in the fray,” back in the game, back in the battle.

    I’m still thinking about Jonah and the whole swallowed by a fish thing.
    Here are some of my thoughts:
    •Sometimes you’re plankton. You’re minding your own business when all of a sudden a big fish swallows a smaller fish as its lunch and you, the microscopic plankton swimming nearby, get swallowed too.
    What’s up with that?

  • Grace Notes

    My church is currently going through the Old Testament book of Jonah.
    Jonah is my guy. He did it all wrong, but he still received God’s grace.
    In the beginning of the book, God tells Jonah to go to Ninevah, a wicked city filled with people Jonah hated, and Jonah says, “Nope. Not gonna do it,” and goes in the opposite direction, hitching a ride on a ship.
    That turns out to not be a good choice for Jonah, because it leads him into a violent storm, gets him thrown overboard by the crew and then swallowed by a fish.

  • Every sheep needs a Good Shepherd for guidance

       
    Have you ever heard of a “lone sheep”? Think with me for a moment about a typical flock of sheep in the nomadic Middle East.
    A typical flock would have a shepherd who leads them out into pastures where they feed during the day. He would then lead them to some source of water, and then back to an enclosed sheep fold at night. Suppose one of the sheep left the flock and wandered away on its own. This would create at least three problems for the lone sheep.

    For my whole life (so far) I’ve been ridiculously healthy.
    In spite of that, as I’ve mentioned before, I suffer from occasional bouts of hypochondria. To me, a headache means a brain tumor, a twinge anywhere means cancer or some rare, as-yet-to-be-identified fatal disease.
    As I write this, I’m concerned about leprosy.
    Actually, I just learned that I have a case of functional leprosy -- and most likely so do you.
