Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17, 2006

I spent the summer of 1991 on a missionary internship in South India. It was the 200th anniversary of the arrival of William Carey in India, and the Indian church was celebrating.

I returned to the states and the next St. Patrick’s Day found myself drinking beer, funny how that happens, in an Irish pub in Rockford, IL. Suddenly it dawned on me. 1600 years or so ago all my ancestors were rock-worshiping pagans and then God sent Patrick. I decided thenceforth to use the holiday to give thanks and to instruct my family about missions.
