Fruit of the Spirit
The original nine artists who worked on the show each had an opportunity to reflect on and add their artistic contribution to each of the nine Fruit of the Spirit. The nine pieces are a result of that collaboration. Each piece is dedicated to exploring one Fruit of the Spirit, including: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Each artist had the opportunity to add to the visual unfolding of each work. As the artwork was passed around the group each month, the artist spent time in prayer and wrote their personal reflections in journals that accompany the work. For Christos Collective, the opportunity to intentionally reflect upon and engage in what the Fruit of the Spirit means to each of us and to more deeply relate to each other through journal reflections and artistic collaboration was a truly meaningful and enlightening experience.
