Jonah: The Forgiveness of God
September 28-November 17
Have you been hurt and found it hard to forgive? Perhaps you’ve even struggled to forgive yourself.
Every time we talk about the forgiveness of God, someone is freed from years of pain by the outrageous grace of God, so we’d like to share our Fall sermon series—Jonah: The Forgiveness of God—with anyone who needs a new start.
Jonah is one of the best-known minor prophets. But away from the popular story of the fish, we find a man wrestling constantly with the forgiveness of God. Forgiveness is one of the hardest subjects we face as believers and many of us struggle with the idea that God forgives people, let alone the idea of forgiving others and seeking it for ourselves.
