The Nine Pecans

Published: Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 09:27 AM.


Being a numbers guy, I try to understand or find the meaning of numbers.


Having sat in church on many Sundays, now and in the past, somewhere in between eating Vanilla Wafers and Cheese Crackers under the pews to my present position of “Official Left Door Usher” four months out of the year at my church, I have heard about the “9 Fruits” more than one time.


Rest assured that I am not going to preach a sermon about Paul and his letter to the Galatian folks.  I’m not going to talk about circumcision; I will note that my mother tried to explain it to me when I was young and I still remember it as being “painfully funny.”  Mama was a missionary and a school teacher, but she didn’t necessarily know how to explain some medical procedures.
