Jonah 3:1-5, 10 – PS 62:6-14 – 1 Cor 7:29-31 – Mark 1:14-20
Intro to the Readings
Our readings today are something you might read in a newspaper.
Our first heading reads:
Jonah preaches “Hell, fire, and damnation” and to his surprise Nineveh repents.
Psalmist puts his trust in God.
A cynical paper would add “foolish psalmist.”
About the reading to First Corinthians the heading might read:
Paul, also know as Saul, writes a long letter of bah bah bah to the Corinthians. We don’t understand it and neither do they.
Our fourth heading, referencing the Gospel might read:
John the Baptist Arrested. What took so long?
Jesus Calls Four Fishermen. Why?
Let us listen to God’s news reporters for us today.
