  • Further reflections discussed during the sermon:
    • Jonah is a story about missing the point about why we follow God.
    • God’s questions to Jonah are questions to the reader.
    • Micah 6:8 says, “No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” When we follow the temptations discussed in the Powerpoint and warned of in the story of Jonah, we trade in vengeance for doing what is right, we trade oppression for mercy, and we trade walking proudly for walking humbly with God.
    • What is the point of following God?
    • What can we learn from the writer of the book of Jonah?
