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?

Throughout my Walk I experienced the presence of the Risen One in the devotional spaces as well as in times of teaching, meditation, and prayer. The communion with brothers, experienced in the daily sharing at the table and in the Word, generated deep bonds of brotherhood.”
