What does a big fish story like the Book of Jonah have to tell us about our relationship with God? Surprisingly, a great deal. In the story of the reluctant prophet we are invited to explore the times when we, like Jonah, have been less than enthusiastic about God’s call. The humor of the original story serves, as it does in Jesus’ parables, to draw in listeners and reveal our own flaws.
