All Are Welcome at the Manger

Grudge the rat is worried. Would a rat be welcome at the manger? Rats are often chased away and he wonders if among the cows and sheep in the nativity scene, perhaps there might have been room for a small rat.

Year A – RCL – Proper 20

Scripture: Jonah 3:10-4:11

Marc Chagall’s “Jonah”

The Bible story of Jonah is a very curious one. God tells Jonah to go and talk to the people of a city where many are behaving very badly. Jonah doesn’t want to go. He’s afraid that they might hurt him if he goes there and tries to tell them to change their wicked ways. Jonah runs in the opposite direction, ends up being thrown into the ocean, swallowed by
