The God of Second Chances: Jonah Sermon #1:: Pastor Donnell Wyche, November 1, 2015
This morning, I'm launching our four-part sermon series on Jonah, the story of the God of Second Chances. Jonah is the fifth in the collection of the minor prophets. Yet Jonah stands as one of the most familiar and popular books of the Bible--often finding its way into most children's bibles. Any familiarity with Jonah shouldn't cause us to quickly dismiss Jonah assuming its just a kid's story ignoring the rich complexity this story offers with notes of compassion, mercy, and second chances, all of which together nudge us towards reconciliation with ourselves, each other, and God.
