Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone!!! I saw these three videos and thought you might enjoy them, too. The first two are short stories on St. Patrick, one from Brown Bag Productions which is an award-winning film company out of Europe. The third video is an online commercial from the Guinness company that is pretty funny – a sheep dog gathering folks together for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
The fact that St. Patrick tends to be celebrated and highlighted more in the pubs than in church buildings possibly suggests two things – (1) that folks are quick to use a good excuse to party hard and (2) that the church should consider having more of a presence at Matthew’s house than at their own house (Matthew 9 and 10). Just thinking / typing out loud :-)
Much love. Grateful for the story, although definitely debatable and not definitive, of a guy like Patrick who prayed a lot and talked about Shamrocks a lot and seemed to love people with the near love of Jesus.
Don’t forget to wear green!
