Like a tree, a follower of Christ must root deeply into Jesus, find all nourishment to stand strongly through life in him, and then naturally impact others with fruit and shade, protection, and life-breathing air. This year at DYR, we will be exploring what it means to grow down and be rooted in Christ!
