What Kind of Fruit Will We Bear

This is the question we are asking ourselves these days.

If a peach tree is planted in Georgia, the peaches will taste somewhat different than if that same tree is planted in California. The soil and the air, and the trace minerals in the water, all will contribute to the unique taste of the fruit.

But is is still a peach.

We believe there may be a variety of fruits we bear over the months of each year.

So as we look to The Orchard Master, we are wondering how our context will influence our "taste", but on a deeper level we are wondering "What kind of fruit will we bear in this current Autumn season?"

How about you?

  1. I think it's kinda cool that the water for your orchard tastes sweet even as it produces the fruit of the Spirit in unique ways in your individual and corporate heart(s).

    "How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth!" Psalm 119:103

    People over programs; family over career;
    fruit over gifts, spouse over details; God
    over all!
