BrainStorming with Bo
This Sunday, let’s BrainStorm about the meaning of St. Patrick’s Day…and then tie it in to a note that Bo’s friend Tony wrote after looking for a church to attend. Read the article about St. Patrick’s life: https://www.saltproject.org/progressive-christian-blog/2019/3/12/a-brief-theology-of-st-patricks-day Here is another great article in Baltimore Magazine: The Real Story Tops The Myth https://www.baltimoremagazine.com/section/historypolitics/st-patrick-the-real-story-tops-the-myth/
And then check out this reflection by Tony: Tony Kriz Reflection
