A couple weeks ago at our deacons meeting, I suggested that our next communion be a summer theme with fruit, and talking about the bounty of summer and the fruit of the spirit. So that's what we did tonight. Funny that so many of my ideas involve food and eating. Our pastor preached a very nice sermon about the summer flowers and tending our gardens, and after that there was foot washing. For those of you not familiar with this, I will be doing a post on it to explain. Those who did not want to participate in foot washing could sit around this prayer alter in my picture. I was back in the church kitchen fixing up this table of munchies and fruit for fellowship afterwards. I guess you could call it the fruit of the spirit.
"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfullness, gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22
