Once again in our Illustrated Earth "season" we hear a story of animals participating in a saving story. This time the "whale of a tale" about the reluctant, runaway prophet Jonah swallowed by a fish. If you have time, read the whole book (four short chapters); here's a link to a pretty engaging version in an interpretation/translation called The Voice. What might surprise us all when re-reading the story is the emphasis on rescue (not punishment) and all the hearts that are changed (Jonah, God, the Ninevites). Pr Joanne links this story to another (Genesis 32:22-32) that we've been thinking about lately, informing the artwork Kristen Gilje painted for us. Come see it this month!
