Branches on a Vine

"In Jesus's time they always talked about being vines," said the Rev. Michael A. Bird at our Family Worship service today, reflecting on John 15:1–8. "We need to be intertwined like vines, and the way vines grow, the way we grow, is by resting, by abiding in Jesus. We bear fruit when we rest in Jesus: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control... These fruits will change our hearts, our lives and our world."
