Prayer for the week: O God of our ancestors, help us to stand with those who have been afraid to speak out, with those who have lost faith because of what they suffered within religious institutions. Help us to be a haven for those who yearn for freedom and respect

that comes through the healing of memories of abuse, trauma and oppression.

Jesus, brother and savior, help us to work in partnership as Columbian missionaries,

so that we can give witness to what it means to live out new ways of being on mission,

of being church, of being Christian, and of being human. Let us overcome the scourge of clericalism and structures of exclusion by the manner in which we seek to work together

as women, men and children,

 

Questions for the week: How might Jonah have felt when God gave him the call to go to Nineveh the second time? What did he do differently this time? Read verse 10. God seems to have changed his mind about the action he had planned to take against Nineveh? What caused this change of plan? What does this say about how God relates with his people? God was concerned for the people of Nineveh – he’s concerned for the people of our city as well. Compare your concern for your neighbors with Jonah’s concern for Nineveh. Compare your concern for your neighbors with God’s love for them. Is God calling you to say something, or do something in your neighborhood?
