Light-hearted Yet Deep St. Patrick’s Day Lesson

Monday is St. Patrick’s Day, so I can’t think of a better time to share the following YouTube video with you, St. Patrick’s Bad Analogies:

I was introduced to this video during the Intro to Theology class I visited when I was checking out SMU Perkins School of Theology. I love how the video is very deep theologically, but fun as well.

If you are a youthworker sharing this video with your youth ministry, or even an adult sharing this with your Sunday School or Bible Study, you might want to ask the following discussion questions:

  • Who is God to you?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Who is the Holy Spirit?
  • Before this video, how did you describe the concept of the Trinity?

Read through John 1 and discuss who is the Word and what this passage says about God, about the Trinity.  You could follow this up with reading through historical creeds found in the United Methodist (or your denomination) hymnal.

And there you have it, a quick and easy Bible study on the Trinity and St. Patrick, just in time for St. Patty’s Day!

May the luck o’ the Irish be with you, Erin Go Bragh, etc,
