Book of Jonah 1: 1-17
Jonah, the Lousy Prophet

In this, a first in a series of sermons based on the tale of the whale and the Prophet Jonah, Rev. Stephen Milton invites us to relate Jonah's experiences of running away to those situations we face today. 

Jonah was looking for a miracle.  Could it be that we, ourselves, could participate in engaging in actions that bring about miraculous results?  Sometimes that takes courage but God is there for us.
