Rev. Ronald Session: Offended by Grace (Jonah 4:2)

Rev. Ronald Session, pastor of Shiloh Church in Garland, Texas, preached to the difficulty of grace right after Amber Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of murder in the fatal shooting of Botham Jean. He wondered how Brent Jean and Judge Kemp could hug Guyger. Jonah helped him work through the difficulty. Session preaches through the book of Jonah to give context to Jonah’s criticism of God, to explain the extent of grace and to apply those lessons to today.

This sermon was delivered on Oct. 6, 2019, during the morning worship service at Shiloh Church in Garland.
