St Patrick and Sentness

The default posture of Jesus' followers is to be one of sentness...if we lack sentness, we lack the character of Jesus.   

The story of St Patrick wonderfully embodies the sentness principle of Stone 5.  St Patrick not only came to faith in Christ and experienced personal transformation, but was  sent by Jesus  to the Irish.  We believe that "sentness" is not only for missionaries like Patrick, but for all followers of Jesus. Jesus said as much in his prayer found in John 17:18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.  

God may or may not be sending you to Irish pagans, but He most definitely is sending you to live as a  residential missionary  in the community where you now live.
