Transcript of Follow up to Failure

Joshua 8:30-35
Then Joshua built on Mount Ebal an altar to the Lord, the God of Israel, as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded the Israelites. He built it according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses—an altar of uncut stones, on which no iron tool had been used. On it they offered to the Lord burnt offerings and sacrificed fellowship offerings. There, in the presence of the Israelites, Joshua wrote on stones a copy of the law of Moses. All the Israelites, with their elders, officials and judges, were standing on both sides of the ark of the covenant of the Lord, facing the Levitical priests who carried it. Both the foreigners living among them and the native-born were there. Half of the people stood in front of Mount Gerizim and half of them in front of Mount Ebal, as Moses the servant of the Lord had formerly commanded when he gave instructions to bless the people of Israel.

Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law—the blessings and the curses—just as it is written in the Book of the Law. There was not a word of all that Moses had commanded that Joshua did not read to the whole assembly of Israel, including the women and children, and the foreigners who lived among them.

The Epic Journey
From Slavery to Promise
Failure: Gateway to Repentance
1. We admit we are powerless over alcohol (sin)–that our lives have become unmanageable.
2. Come to believe that a Power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity.
3. Make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God.
4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5. Admit to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Are entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly ask God to remove our shortcomings.
8. Make a list of persons we have harmed, and are willing to make amends to them all.
9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure
them or others.
10. Continue to take personal inventory and when wrong promptly admit it.
11. Seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying
only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we carry this message to
alcoholics (sinners) and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Jonah 4:1-3
But to Jonah this seemed very wrong, and he became angry. He prayed to the Lord, “Isn’t this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity. Now, Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live.”
