Adrift in whale bile, Jonah, ever the reluctant prophet, prophecies. Parables abound.

Lenten Meditation VII
inspired by Matthew 6:7-15
Another one of those easier said than done things. I struggle with this on a daily basis - partly because I have been ill-used by so many fools, charlatans, pirates and thieves, and partly because I am a stubborn and vengeful old cuss. I cringe every time I say the Lord's Prayer and realize that I am asking God to forgive me in the same measure that I forgive the rat bastards of my acquaintance. My one hope is that He is more merciful than I, else I am pretty much screwed.
