The hall was decorated with many different scenes of the Fruit of the Spirit, from a biblical and an earthly perspective. The evening began with a service, with all prayers, hymns and stories focusing on the different fruit of the spirit and how we could integrate the character traits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self control in our lives.
Next, we had several skits, which gave everyone a good laugh as religion needs to be uplifting as well as thought provoking. There were several paper and pencil games, again focused on our theme.
The evening ended with a delicious lunch, with abundant food and lots of chatting and laughter. The Fruit of the Spirit was alive and well in our fellowship gathering and hopefully in our lives, so that the “Fruit of the Spirit” will help our “light shine bright for all the world to see.”
As part of the Outreach from our Fellowship, we will be providing a gift of “fruit trees,” through World Vision, to help start an orchard in an underdeveloped, impoverished country.
