Strengthening your faith
Reading I: Acts 9:26–31 (Saul visits Jerusalem)
Reading II: 1 John 3:18–24 (the actions of believers)
Gospel: John 15:1–8 (the vine and the branches)
Key Passage: [The vine grower] removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit he prunes to make it bear more fruit. (John 15:2)
Adult: When have you been “pruned” by your experiences in a way that led to greater abundance?
Child: When have you felt stronger or better because you did something hard to help another person?
