Olive Tree Faith is about cultivating a faith that is deeply rooted – like the olive tree.

Even though its trunk becomes bent and hollowed by heat, drought, and decay, and winds batter and gnarl its branches – the olive tree only grows more beautiful with each storm and the passing of time.

And due to its remarkably deep root system, it is able to not only survive drought but to flourish in it and bear fruit.

So let’s grow a faith like the olive tree!

  • A faith deeply rooted in Christ and his life-giving Word.
  • A faith that flourishes, even in dry spells.
  • That grows more beautiful as stormy winds buffet, bend, twist, and scar it.
  • And which not only endures, but bears fruit, even during the worst times of drought.

Sheila, from Italy – a Land of Many Olives

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation

Habakkuk 3:17-18 KJV
