Ripening Fruit

"Spirit can not be measured by how many hands get lifted during worship; or whether or not people stand spontaneously during a song. 

But there ought to be joy somewhere.

The presence of the Spirit is best detected by
the fruit of the Spirit

Looking at how people behave when the parking lot is jammed and traffic can't get out quickly is a wonderful way to see how the fruit of patience is ripening."
Ortberg ~

"Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives"
~ Galatians 5:25 {The Message}~

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
