of my post. I would point out that St. Patrick is wearing blue not green, as blue is the color associated with the saint.
Saint Patrick, born to a Christian family in Roman-controlled Briton. Patrick was a ruffian as a youth, who turned away from the faith of his father, a deacon, and grandfather, a priest. Patrick was kidnapped by slavers and sold to a druid chieftain in Ireland, where he serves as a shepherd. It was during this time when he turned to faith in Jesus. After 6 years as a slave, Patrick was led by God to rreturn to Briton. Upon his return home, he entered into the seminary and would eventually rise to become a bishop. God would once again lead Patrick to leave his current situation, this time it would be to return to Ireland to bring the Gospel to those that had been his masters. Patrick and a team of missionaries would begin a movement in Ireland that would see a majority of the country convert to Christianity. He and his team used a radical, for its time, approach to missions. They knew or learned the language, had a heart for the culture and met the people where they were, in much the same way Jesus had done.
Here’s what we should take away from Brother Patrick, according to author George Hunter in his book ”The Celtic Way of Evangelism.”
”The fact that Patrick understood the people and their language, their issues, and their ways, serves as the most strategically significant single insight that was to drive the wider expansion of Celtic Christianity, and stands as perhaps our greatest single learning from this movement. There is no shortcut to understanding the people. When you understand the people, you will often know what to say and do, and how. When the people know that the Christians understand them, they infer that maybe the High God understands them too. (19–20)” #christianity #sheepdog #BeReady #warrior #fitness #violentwhennecessary
