Sunday, January 24, 2021
Most of us are familiar with the story of Jonah: God called him to evangelize a particularly difficult region and he refused to go. In fact, Jonah tried to run away from the task. Jonah tried to hide from God.
- Have you ever understood God's plan for you, but responded in fear as Jonah did?
- Have you ever tried to hide from God?
Most of us probably have. We see in today's first reading, God's will prevails! Jonah goes to Nineveh preaching a message of repentance. The task should have taken three days, but after only one day the people of Nineveh believed God and repented of their evil ways.
From Jonah we learn two lessons of discipleship. First, there is no hiding from God. Do not withhold your FIAT! Second, God does not send us unaccompanied to do His work. Seemingly impossible tasks can be accomplished when we choose to collaborate with Him. God's call to evangelize may at times be difficult, but never impossible.

Separated & Divorced Support Group – via Zoom. Find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce.
The Separated & Divorced group is here for you and led by people who have gone through it and know what you are dealing with. This confidential group is FREE and open to anyone trying to rebuild their life after the pain of a broken relationship. Due to the spike in COVID- 19 cases in our area we have decided to temporarily postpone our inhouse Separated & Divorced meeting and go virtual (via zoom). We understand the importance of meeting in person but the health and safety of our guests and staff is our first and foremost priority.
Upcoming meetings are every other Sunday; January 24th, February 14th and February 28th from 4:00-6:00pm.
If you would like to join and need Zoom information please call (315) 735-6210. Monday – Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm or visit us at www.thegoodnewscenter.org.
The Sanctuary Light this week is lit in memory of Keith Franzen by his family.

Word Search Puzzle
Every story in the Bible helps us to get to know what God is like, what we are like, and the way God wants us to live.
The Old Testament reading this weekend is about Jonah and the whale . It is found towards the back, in the book called Jonah. It is only four chapters long, but tells us a lot about Jonah and teaches us to do what God wants and not what we want.
SPIRITUAL MINDFULNESS SEMINARS
We live in a world of complexity, fragmentation, noise, and haste.
How can we experience God in the midst of the busyness, responsibilities, and activities of our daily lives?
We do this by living more in the present moment and by practicing the presence of God in the present moment.
