Fruits of the Holy Spirit - 9-week course
Tending your Garden of God to bear healthy fruit
God's Fruits are also called the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is in fact HIS Spirit of Truth which lives in us when we have been raised from the spiritually dead. The Holy Spirit blesses us with 9 (nine) fruits which we are able to receive daily by faith. During this workshop we go into the details of each fruit, what it means and what it tastes like in our lives. This workshop involves creatively painting or drawing on canvas the 9 fruits for yourself under the direction of God's Truth. Understanding these 9 fruits more deeply helps us better understand what it means to receive them by faith, how they sweeten the bitter seasons, what it means to truly live by them and why they are such an important part of our daily spiritual nourishment. Tending your Garden of God enables these fruits to be healthy and full of the essential living spiritual nutrients and sustenance we need daily.
This workshop is spread over 9-weeks so that you can focus on one fruit per week and really digest it's meaning and strengthen your intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit - God's Spirit of Truth. Developing this one on one intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit is an essential part of our spiritual walk. During this workshop we will also go deeper into who the Holy Spirit is, what His role is in our lives, why we NEED Him and how we can communicate with Him.

What you'll need: Small to medium sized square canvases to draw or paint your Holy Spirit Fruit creation on and paints or colour pens to get creative with. This is for the purpose of creating with the Holy Spirit and displaying this creation in your home or office so that you are reminded daily of the importance of receiving your daily sustenance from God. This process also allows the free Spirit of God to create through you so PLEASE do not worry if you're not an artist. This is not about art, it's about God's creative Spirit working through you and being expressed on canvas.
