Encouragement For Easter

This year we are privileged to share a word from our friend Andrew Palau of the Luis Palau Association in Portland, OR.

West Coast Networks

In John, chapter 17, Jesus prayed that his followers would be one as he and the Father are one. He goes as far as to say that the world will not know his love if they cannot see our love for one another.

In fact, my family has thrown the Annual Ryan's St. Patty's Day Huzzah for 13 years now, in which we invite friends over for Irish lamb stew, soda bread, braised cabbage and some of the aforementioned libations. But somehow, the general focus has shifted away from celebrating and/or remembering an evangelist who transformed an island nation with the good news to a watered-down celebration of lucky charms, leprechauns and stout beer. But is there something else worth celebrating? St. Patrick was stolen away to
