For the past sermon series in the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), the best time I spent was at the neighborhood coffee shop with my printed text of Galatians five, a yellow pad and my colored pencils. This was because
- I was not distracted by office buzz and clutter
- Coffee shops are strangely stimulating bc of the coffee and the buzz of people.
- Context is important, and reading the short passage in its natural habitat gives a more natural reading.
