“From Blossoms to Beautiful Fruit”

May 6 and 9 by Reverend Dr. Gilbert Duchow

Last Sunday’s and today’s Gospel lessons compare our relationship with Jesus to a grape vine. A more familiar analogy might be an apple tree. Jesus is the vine or tree, and we are the branches. When we remain firmly attached to Christ, we are able to bear much fruit for God’s glory and the growth of His kingdom.
