That has to be one of the worst descriptions of paganism I've ever heard.

Loved the video, in classic VeggieTales form. One of our house churches had a Saint Patrick's Party. We showed this video (which I had seen earlier that day on this site) and then discussed the more *historical* story of Saint Patrick. We laughed at some of the *less accurate* aspects of the story, but were able to take the discussion to a more serious level, including how Patrick allowed Ireland to enjoy a less romanized expression of their faith. And yes, Doug, we also talked about the video's depiction of paganism...
The video gave us a fun launching point for our subsequent discussion that we would not otherwise have had. Thank you, UrL, for posting this video.

I just randomly came across this video today (September 25th,2011) as I was doing some reading, and I decided to watch it as a little break from my studies. I was suprised, however, at how much I was encouraged by this tale. The importance of prayer in Maewyn's life is incredible. He relied on prayer to simply get him through the day, and it turned into a lifestyle that was designed around drawing wisdom and strength from a consistent prayer life. It is important to look at the brokenness that led him to that point as well. You can look at countless stories of successful leaders, and you will find the common theme of brokenness. God uses the low times and the hard times in our lives to shape us and prepare us for future callings he has for us. In St. Patrick's case, it was being kidnapped when he was a boy and forced to work in a pig farm. But it was crucial to his development as a believer and prepared him for future ministry. God often calls us to take part in struggles and trials in order to get to another calling that he has for us. It is also sad to think about how a holiday celebrating the life of this man of God is now "St. Patty's day", a holiday that celebrates alcohol and partying. Regardless of that, I was encouraged by this video!
