Patrick:  A Story that Guides Us

St. Patrick was born into a wealthy Christian family.  When he was a teenager, raiders from Ireland kidnapped Patrick from Briton, took him to Ireland as a slave where he lived with hunger, privation and nakedness. In time, Patrick returned to the faith of his family.  Eventually he escaped Ireland, became a priest and bishop and returned to make disciples of Jesus Christ, bring freedom and hope to the needy  and plant churches throughout the land. 

Patrick’s story inspires us to be a church on mission. A church for the sake of others. We want to be like Patrick and the Christians who served God with him: a people on mission; a community of disciples of Jesus offering ourselves to God for the good of the world.

The gospel of Jesus Christ rightly preached and received eradicates all racism
and bigotry. Christ's work creates a new family where those who are different become one as they stand together on the level ground at the foot of the cross and serve one another as our Lord served who washed his disciples feet. Racism and bigotry are absolute contradictions to the way of Jesus and have no place on the hearts and minds of those who give allegiance to Christ. (Galatians 2:11-14, Galatians 3:27-28, Ephesians 2:11-14.)
