When God is Not Fair-Gather Magazine Bible Study
For fall 2016, Meghan Johnston Aelabouni helps us explore biblical images of a God who acts beyond our conceptions of what's "fair." From Jonah’s prayer to God from the belly of a big fish to school-age siblings and squabbling nations, this fall we'll delve into what it means to worship a God who forgives the guilty, chooses the unlikely and gives to those who haven't "earned" it.

Session 1: Jonah and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day: when God forgives the guilty
Session 2: Jesus and the evil eye: when God blesses the undeserving
Session 3: Paul and the power of failure: when God chooses the unlikely
