Sermon 09 August 2020 (Proper 14)

The sad, sad story of Jonah by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Today’s first reading is a glorious testimony to God: to His attentiveness, His faithfulness, His power, and His love.  Unfortunately for Jonah personally, this was the high point of his relationship with God, as far as we know. Rather than measure his success by God’s scale, Jonah used his own standard: he put a higher priority on his own reputation than he did on God’s purposes.  Jonah valued his own image over the lives and souls of those to whom God was sending him.
