Celtic Cross


Celtic Cross
Originally uploaded by thestonesinprague.

I am currently in Europe. I was able to speak at a youth conference in the Brixton district in south London Friday night, particpate in a youth service outside of Dublin on Saturday night, and attend the YWEA dedication at the Solid Rock Church of God in Drogheda, Ireland on Sunday morning. I will post more pictures of those events in a few days.

This afternoon David Patton was kind enough to take me on a tour of some of the sites in the countryside outside of Drogheda. David is the national Youth & Christian Education director for Ireland, as well as the son of our dear friend Stana Patton in Prague!

Here I am standing in front of one of Ireland’s finest examples of an ancient Celtic cross. These crosses were inscribed with pictorial accounts of biblical narratives that were used to teach the people, especially the children, various stories from Scripture.

    Hi Jon! Welcome back to the . . . continent (even if you are on the other side of the channel.) Glad things are moving along and it’s cool that you got to see David!

    Wow, Ireland looks really nice. Please say hi to David from me, he’s a fantastic guy, and I really enjoyed meeting him and playing music with him in Prague. Hope to see you soon again in the Czech Republic. With warm regards, Lee Grayson
