Rooted And Grounded In Love: a worship song


Originally written for (and performed at) the United Church of Christ 2021 General Synod, this progressive Christian hymn images Jesus as healer, teacher, and prophet, and invites all people (regardless of their religion) to be healers, teachers, and prophets in our time. This recording and video was made by Ken Janzen.
