Jonah was vomited to shore, covered in slime
and seaweed, and probably never so happy
to see the open sky and to breathe fresh air.
But, even more important, Jonah was a complete failure.
He was all washed up as a prophet.
He had fled from the command of the Lord.
Ever felt that way?
Ever felt the shame of failing God or others?
Is there a way to get a second chance?
