Floundering: Jonah's Struggle with God
Is God allowed to surprise us? We spend our entire lives trying to make God smaller.
We try to reduce him to a scientific formula, where we always know what to
expect. We want to be able to predict his every move. But if God is truly
great, then shouldn’t he get bigger as we understand him better? Unfortunately
we often times have no tolerance for a God of surprises. Many of us have been
dulled by religion to the point that God doesn’t shock us anymore. Our vision of
God has no room for unpredictability. And that’s sad, because as we’ll see in
the Old Testament book of Jonah, we serve a God who is just a little bit dangerous.
Join us this month for our new sermon series entitled Floundering: Jonah's
Struggle with God, and expect the unexpected.
