Pokemon GO is the newest craze sweeping the globe, but do you think it is going to last? We never want to miss out on something that could be good, and Pokemon GO certainly has its benefits: exercise, community, and fun. Yet it seems that trends like this often come to a swift end. It wasn’t long ago that Angry Birds was all the rage. It was the same with Candy Crush, Myspace, mood rings, Tickle Me Elmo and pet rocks. Investing time and energy catching Pokemon today may not prove that helpful tomorrow. At Beacon Church we believe there’s something worth seeking that won’t go out of style: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These virtues are called the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’—they’re the result of the spiritual life! Like Pokemon, each is rare and hard to spot, but they have the power to change our lives and the lives of others. Join us this fall as we do our best to catch ‘em all!
