Enemy-love in the Trump era

Describing the world as “a powder keg” that feels “more afraid and fragile” than it ever has, British musician and activist David Blower said that he believes the Jonah story and its radical lesson of “enemy-love” has something to say into this moment of history. Blower believes that we were given Jonah so we could stand with him and be shocked by God’s mercy on tyrants and ask ourselves, “To whom do we need to go to find the image of God?” For this we don’t need to go to Iraq. As Gritter observed, none of us is lacking a practise field.
