Jesus said, “Each tree is recognized by its own fruit.” - Luke 6:44 (NIV)
Before I set out on the path to ministry, church members on a discernment board had to answer questions about me regarding my faith. Among the questions was this one: Does Ian have fruit? I had never really understood what Jesus meant in the verse quoted above, but this question...
What “fruit” do I want others to see in me today?

I have been in the military for over 18 years, working in Religious Affairs. The Upper Room has always been a crucial resource for our military members. It serves as a beacon of hope, a way to connect daily to God and a reminder of how we should act as Christians.”
