In Loving Memory of Pat Smith
November 30, 1926 - December 12, 2021
The Fruit of Walking with the Spirit
“On the other hand, if we follow the guidance of the Spirit, our lives will bear good spiritual fruit. The Spirit will grow in us the fruit of love and joy, peace and patience, kindness and goodness, faithful hearts, gentle ways, and self-control.
Our tribal law has nothing to say against those who walk in these ways. For the ones who belong to Creator Sets Free (Jesus) the Chosen One have nailed their weak and broken humanity to his cross. This puts to death all their wrong desires and broken ways.
Since our life comes from the Spirit, let us dance in step with the Spirit and follow the Spirit's guidance. In this way we will not become big-headed troublemakers who are jealous of each other.”
(First Nations Version, An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament)
