St. Patrick – A Different Look

Last weekend Gracehill spent time discussing the life of St. Patrick of Ireland, a topic that is relevant to our community. Often, when the words, “St. Patrick’s Day” are mentioned, our minds immediately begin to think about parades, funny hats, shamrocks, Chicago’s green river and green beer. What’s been lost in the cultural celebration is the original purpose for the holiday. After Patrick’s encounter with God, his life was a powerful example of a life committed to Christ and His vision.

Below are some links that will give you more information on this man. When we look at his life we should realize that, “St. Patrick’s Day should be about missions, not green beer.” (quote from theresurgence.com)
