God sent Jonah to the “enormously big city” of Nineveh. Three days to go through it. No wonder poor Jonah headed off in the opposite direction, seeking smallness, safe and sound. But God doesn’t call us to smallness. “You kingdom come” we pray; let’s work for it.
In this holy time,
a time of grace, Lord,
awaken kingdom dreams in us,
save us from dreaming too small.
You came to Jonah a second time,
send us into Nineveh
as your presence there.
For a homily.
