Sacred Roots


Video in Faith & Christianity • May 1, 2015

What is the point of church? Really?

“Why should I invest myself in something I’m not sure does any good?” Many people today are asking this question about the church. Maybe you’re asking it, too.

Of course, this isn’t where it all started. The early church was a powerhouse of communal love, self-giving, and service. So how do we rediscover these sacred roots? How do we recover the purpose of the church in all its beauty? And how do we understand that purpose for our time and place? Sacred Roots offers four personal and communal shifts critical to being the kind of church that transforms people—and renews the world.
