Hope you’re wearing green and eating some corned beef and cabbage… but most of all, we hope you’re remembering St. Patrick and how God uses normal people to further His kingdom.
Patrick was taken captive and transported to Ireland as a slave when he was 16. He worked there for 6 years before escaping and returning to England, his homeland. However, after several years, he felt God calling him to return to Ireland. He did so with trepidation. But once in-country, he traveled, preached, and baptized with zeal. There’s only two written works from his timeframe that detail Patrick’s life, but he’s credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland in the late 5th century.
This week, we gave students green gifts. Water bottle stickers, chocolate mint candy, and a green scrunchie (for the girls) or carabiner (for the boys) were tucked into a little green gift bag and put in their mailboxes. It isn’t a big thing at all, but it was a fun thing to plan and carry out…. and our girls loved playing “leprechaun” to help deliver the gifts!
