After thinking and studying and wondering about one of the fruit of the Spirit Paul describes in Galatians that we translate as “kindness”, Explore will shift its attention towards another “fruit,” translated as “peace”.

Explore will use peace and peacemaking as its theme for

Sundays, October 4th, 25th,  and November 1.

William Barclay, in his popular commentary on Galatians, notes that the New Testament Greek word translated here as peace had two main uses:

Socially and politically to describe “the good order of a town or village” and

To signify the Hebrew notion of shalom, which Barclay      defines as “tranquility of heart which derives from the all-pervading consciousness that our times are in the hands of God.”

Sound interesting? Join us in October for deeper explorations of peace as a fruit of God’s Spirit suitable for kids, teens and adults.Per usual, Explore is from 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
