Last week Bobby left us with a bizarre image of Jonah in mid-air about to splash down into the sea. God had asked Jonah preach to a tough crowd. He says, “no way,” resigns his role as a prophet, and sprints in the opposite direction. Jonah’s freedom experiment fails and his selfishness quickly catches up with him. Through an outlandish course of events Jonah is tossed off the boat by frightened sailors who fear the God that pursues him. This week we’ll explore a near death experience, an unconventional rescue, and a freestyle prayer from inside the belly of a sea beast. It’s in those precise moments of desperation when God is closest to his runaway.
