POTLUCK! According to the Bible, the fruits of the spirit include love, joy, peace, kindness, temperance, etc. And the fruits of our fall season are apples, peaches, berries, tomatoes (are they fruits or veggies?) So as we practice the fruits of the spirit, let's share the fruits of the season after church on Sunday Oct 20. Some ideas are: Apple pie or pumpkin cookies, blueberry muffins or zucchini bread, or those cute little cherry tomatoes, bring fruit and veggie dishes to share with our friends as we talk with love and kindness.
