KNOWN BY YOUR FRUIT: LENT SERMON SERIES

 

When you are pressured or stressed, what do people see? Something life-giving? Something depressing? Something that empowers or motivates others? When we are pressured, what seeps out of our lives sadly is what we fill our lives with. If we rely on ourselves, what comes out is rarely pretty. The apostle Paul says that a spiritually healthy person will be characterized by the fruit of the spirit. Cultivating those nine fruits—and moving beyond unhealthy aspects of our life—is our focus for our Lenten series this year. Join us.
