Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.
These are the fruits of the Spirit promised to us in Galatians 5. In this collection of true stories from workshops throughout the country, Bobbie Reed leads readers to ponder how these fruits have been experienced in everyday lives of contemporary Christians, and to reflect on how they can be nurtured to further their own spiritual growth.
The book is divided into nine sections, one for each of the fruits of the Spirit, with nine or more meditations on each gift. The stories have been collected and used for over twenty years in the author's seminars and conferences across the country. This is an excellent resource for small group study, Christian storytelling, and sermon preparation.
