Jonah: Redemptive Confinement

Like many of you, my greatest seasons of spiritual growth have come in seasons of involuntary confinement, so I am deeply motivated to form my own practice of askesis in the days to come. Church, our feelings will not lead us to practice askesis.  But without confinement, concentration, and a deep awareness of our limits, we can easily become a “Jonah”, no matter how noble our intentions.
