Faith Hope Love Joy Peace

Fruits of the Holy Spirit:
Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, Peace

Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, Peace 

Come join Spirit of Peace Pastors Michael and Cathy Hanus in the Free Faith Hope Love Joy Peace Series Presentation

Preparing for Christmas 2018

In this liturgical life change presentation series, we focus on five qualities of character: Faith, Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace. 

All Are Welcome to join us in this presentation. If you are so inclined, we accept invitations to come to your location for presentation and discussion. 

We justify these qualities of character by reading and applying Scripture. 

But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22. 

Faith 

We exercise our quality of Faith by trusting in Jesus Christ and reliance in His Word. 

We walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7. 

Hope 

We experience Hope through expectation of good in our lives. 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13. 

Love 

We practice Love through our readiness to assist the good of others. 

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10. 

Joy 

We engage Joy as an experience in goodness. 

If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:10-11. 

Peace 

We come to know Peace as assurance that aspirations turn out well. 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27. 

Advent 

Advent, derived from Latin, defined, is the arrival of a notable person.

We await the coming of Jesus Christ in the Nativity on Christmas Day and His Return in the Second Coming of Christ. In our case, this and every Liturgical Season of Advent will bring us the celebratory arrival of the Christ Child on Christmas Day. 

Church Celebration Services 

Every week of these four weeks of Advent we will reflect upon, and practice in our lives, building one upon the next, Faith, Hope, Love and Joy. In formal prayer and reflection, we will cover each one of these qualities of character in our liturgical services as we progress through Advent and become prepared on Christmas Day for the Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guarding our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7.

Opening Prayer

Blessings of God

The day is coming to a close,

and, like the disciples on the road to Emmaus,

we pause to break bread together.

May our eyes be opened, and,

in this act of common sharing,

may we see the risen Lord in one another.

May we see the Lord of Life in our food,

our conversation and lives shared in common.

May the blessing of God,

His peace and love,

rest upon our table. Amen.

– Edward Hays.
