Christ Be Within Me

It’s St. Patrick’s Day. Some might only think of green food and drink, parades and parties on this day. But St. Patrick is the most well-known and celebrated saint. He was born in a wealthy family in Britain in the fifth century, captured by Irish pirates and was a prisoner for six years. During that time, he learned the language and prayed to God for his release. He was indeed released and became a priest and a bishop. He had a dream that the people of Ireland were calling to him to come back and walk with them. He and his disciples served and shared the Good News and converted much of Ireland to Christianity.

He used the shamrock as a symbol of the Holy Trinity: our three in one God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The three leaves of the shamrock also represented faith, hope and love.

St. Patrick had a big influence in his day and his feast day is celebrated all over the world. We can all be Irish for a day remembering the Good News that Jesus’ mercy changes me, we and the world.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 am as we gather to worship, praise and thank our God. We wrap up our sermon series on the Psalms this fifth Sunday of Lent as we walk toward to Holy Week. It won’t be the same without YOU.

 

Grace be with you,

Vikki

Why visitors still use to read news papers when in this technological world the whole thing
is presented on web?
