Fruit of the Spirit

December 10, 2020 |

Galatians 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

Frank has been a long-time supporter of Home Sweet Home Ministries and he recently went to his heavenly reward.  His widow suggested that family and friends could honor Frank's memory through gifts to Home Sweet Home Ministries.  She told me why she selected Home Sweet Home Ministries for this honor.  When Frank's mother was elderly and had dementia, she would wander around downtown Bloomington and would often end up at Home Sweet Home.  The staff treated her with kindness and would frequently give her an orange.  Frank was grateful for the kindness that was shown to his mother and became a regular contributor to Home Sweet Home Ministries.  The practice of sharing kindness and food with people who stop by continues today through our daily sack lunch distribution program.  Sometimes the lunches even include an orange!


Be joyful in HOPE, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayerRomans 12:12
