Sermon Preview - Portraits form the Prophets: Jonah

Sunday, September 29, 10:00 am You might be surprised by the simple power of a BBQ.

We love Orange County. Redeemer is starting to organize by neighborhood groups across the county called parishes. Parishes are designed to help us connect with the Redeemer people we live close to and to empower our local Redeemer communities to contribute to the health and thriving of our cities.

This Sunday (tonight for the South County Parish) all the parishes are gathering for a BBQ. It may seem simple, but deciding to take time out of your busy schedule to deepen your connections with your Redeemer neighbors will build power into your relationships and power into your ability to love your neighbors. Please make this gathering a priority. See the details below.

This week we look at the portrait of God given to us in the story of Jonah. It is a simple story. A man is running from God and God pursues him in love. As Jonah tells us, God is "a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relenting from disaster."

I look forward to gazing at this portrait of God and worshiping him together.
