Shamrocks and A Saint

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to those with an Irish Heritage. St. Patrick was a saint from Ireland, however he was born in Roman Britain around the latter part of the 4th century. He was kidnapped at age 16 and enslaved in Ireland. After he escaped his slave owners he later returned to Ireland around year 432 to help turn the Irish folk onto Christianity. Upon his death on March 17th, 461 he had become well known for his instrumental movement to being about monasteries, churches, and schools. A couple of legendary beliefs is that he was responsible for driving out all of the snakes in Ireland and it has been told that he used the native Shamrocks to explain the trinity from the Bible. Whatever you believe we hope you’ll be safe while celebrating the life of St. Patrick and remember his good deed for he worked to build a better way through the love of Christ.“

Ephesians 4:11-13 says, (11) “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelist, the pastors, and teachers, (12) to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be build up (13) until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” NIV
