Why in the world didn’t Jonah just follow God’s command instead of running the other way?
Ron Rolheiser, OMI
Far from being a loner and a Hamlet, everything about Jesus radiates the opposite. It seems that he grew up happily, quite comfortable in the rhythms of family, community, and rural life.
The Destruction of Nineveh
God tells Jonah to tell the people of Nineveh this line from the Lord: Forty days more and Nineveh shall be destroyed.
Some respond to God easily, but others drag their spiritual feet.
No Greater Challenge
Each of us must choose between solidarity with a world headed for destruction and solidarity with a world ruled by God.
This reading says, “The time is running out.” Could this be a message for us today about our environment and our care for creation?
what we want
is to do God’s will
