As a consummate missionary, St. Patrick was a character of incredible contradiction. He challenged the dark idolatry in Ireland and lit the hills with fiery truth. He operated in signs and wonders and performed miracles that rivaled Old Testament heroes. He not only introduced Ireland to the power of the God of heaven, he also introduced Ireland to the love of the God of heaven. I believe that his sacrificial obedience and the pure love of God that he demonstrated to his despisers in his generation is the reason he is known today. Which proves once again that love is stronger than death.
We are honoring him with this stunning pen made of the wood from the Red River Revival Meetinghouse. Its beautiful Celtic stylings are crowned with an emerald denoting his deep love and ours for the land of Ireland.
