Topic: “Fruits” of the Spirit
Curriculum written by Justin Lee
Love, joy, peace, and all the rest—as Christians, our lives are supposed to exemplify the Fruits of the Spirit, but for many of us in the LGBT+ community, that’s easier said than done. (What does it mean to have “peace” when we’ve been taught over and over that we’re sinful and unlovable? What does it mean to show “patience” and “gentleness” to the people who have wronged us in the church?) In this weekly study, we’ll be looking at each of the Fruits in biblical context and talk about what they mean to us as sexual and gender minorities.
