Ministry Moment from Bridget 3-22-17


Luck.  Are you a lucky person? Do you ever feel lucky?

Recently we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at Cokes Chapel Childcare Center.  A common phrase during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations is “the luck of the Irish.”

What is “the luck of the Irish?”  Are Irish people just naturally lucky?  It turns out that “the luck of the Irish” is actually an American phrase.  During the gold and silver rush years, some of the most famous and successful miners were of Irish and Irish American birth.  Over time, this association of the Irish with mining fortunes led to the expression ‘luck of the Irish.’

I have a little bit of Irish in me that comes from my Great Grandmother Kelley.  But I don’t feel lucky because of that.  I am lucky because I get to spend my days with 160 kiddos!  Precious, innocent children who attend our childcare center.  Children who through our ministry are learning about Jesus.

Who are learning how to live in the ways that Jesus did.  We are growing and making disciples here, as we are told to.

Come and see.  You will feel lucky and loved!
