Spirit in Life: The Fruits of the SpiritExploring the Fruits of the Spirit in short, fun conversations
Beth and Kristofer Cowles discuss the Fruits of the Spirit as St. Paul lists in Galatians 5:22-23. Each video is 3 – 5 minutes long, and helpful for adults, parents, and kids to begin discussing the Fruits in their own lives – how to recognize them, how to practice them, and how to get better at them. Beth and Kristofer share their own experiences and challenges with bearing these Fruits in God’s Garden of Grace.
As one video is added each week during Lent and Easter of 2021, they will appear here. This is a 14-week series, including the introduction below.
