The Bible is not generally considered a humorous book — but funny images and amusing characters are found in its pages. Humor is a good antidote for the doom and gloom we too often feel these days. The story of Jonah reminds us that it's not all on us to make things better. It's time to lighten up — and we can! God is with us, inviting us to share in mending the world.
In August, we visit the story of Jonah, the one book of the Bible that is pure theological, comedic satire. As with most comedy, you may find yourself in the story in a way that will teach you — and might even make you laugh. Join us ... and get ready to smile!
Today, we will hear a sermon from Pastor Ginger titled "Lighten Up!," focused on Jonah 1:1-16 and Luke 24:36-43. We will also receive Holy Communion at both the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services. We can't wait to worship with you both in person and online.
