Master puppeteer Elmer Strasser tells the story of Jonah! Wait – Jonah!?! You may ask what Jonah has to do with a series on the people of God in exile. But, Jonah too found himself in strange and unfamiliar circumstances. His trouble was a consequence of his own choice to try and run away from God and what God was calling him to do. Even in his disobedience, even in the depths of despair, he found that God was still with him and still calling him to follow God’s way. Let’s see how Elmer tells this story!
