Jonah is on the dock for Sunday.  Strange man.  Strange story.

As T.J. Carlisle has written –


By heart he has learned –

with what heart he had –

devotedly and meticulously the eternal words.

He could recite them without even thinking

religiously exact and letter perfect,

gracious, merciful slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love repenting of evil

And now the blow:

God genuinely meant it word for word What a pity !
