Creative activities based on the Bible story of Jonah runs away from God's call

In Jonah chapter 1, we find the story of Jonah, a prophet who was given a message from God to go and preach to the people of Nineveh. However, Jonah refused to obey and instead boarded a ship bound for Tarshish. During the journey, God sent a great storm that threatened to sink the ship. The sailors realized that Jonah was the cause of the storm and threw him overboard. This story teaches us about the importance of obedience and following God's call, even when it's difficult. It also shows us that God is in control of all things, including the forces of nature, and that we should trust in Him in all circumstances.
