Today is St. Patrick’s Day so this blog will be a little history followed by a challenge. Patrick was not Irish. He was born in Britain. At age 16 he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland. While there he became a Christian. He escaped seven years later and returned to Britain. Later Patrick was ordained as a priest and he went back to Ireland to convert more people to Christianity. He died on March 17, 461. It is said he used the shamrock to teach the Christian concept of the Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (one plant, three leaves). It is not known if that’s true or if the story developed after his death, but it does show how common things can be used for Christian teaching. That’s what I’ve been trying to do with this blog. The photos are things in this world. My comments relate the worldly object to a Christian concept. Now for the challenge. What object or scene can you use to convey a Christian teaching? Make an effort to find something today. Please share what you discover.
