Jennifer Rankins

A Book Signing


We are excited to Welcome Jennifer Rankins to our Coffeehouse to introduce her new book “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. Join us on Saturday, April 14th at 2:30 PM

Exit Through the Gift Shop

When Apostle Paul penned the nine qualities we call the "Fruit of the Spirit," he neatly divided them into three general groups, though some overlapping in application occurs between them. The 1st group is: love, joy, peace-portrays a Christian's mind, with special emphasis on our relationship with God. The 2nd group is: patience, kindness, goodness - contains social virtues relating to our thoughts and actions towards our fellow man. And the 3rd group: faithfulness, gentleness, long-suffering- is our attitude during trials and tribulations and how we deal with them. So, if we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, or envying one another.
