“Repent.” It’s one of those words that we take for granted. What does it really mean to repent, as expressed in today’s texts?

Jonah 3:1-5, 10. Bypassing the tale of the "great fish," the Lectionary focuses our attention on Jonah's mission to Nineveh—the preaching of repentance to a people who don't believe in Jonah's God. Jonah is as shocked as anyone when Nineveh repents.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (24) 25
This individual lament focuses on the singer's need to return to the Torah, the "way" that God teaches to the covenant people.

1 Corinthians 7:29-31. Paul is exhorting the Corinthians to keep focused on the return of Jesus and to act accordingly. Though his words may have a different meaning for us, who do not expect an imminent return of the Lord, the message they teach is still worth hearing: Stay focused on what is important because "the world in its present form is passing away."

Mark 1:14-20. The brief summary of Jesus' main message (his "sound bite") is followed by Mark's version of the call of the first disciples: Simon and Andrew, James and John.
