Our History:
Roots was formed on August 19, 2011 from a deep desire of several young adults to continue the formation they began as members of Hạt Cải. When a seed is planted, it grows roots to gain nutrients from the ground. As the seed turns into a plant, others can see it grow on the surface. At the same time, its roots also continue to grow, giving the plant life through its deepening connection with the earth. Our group has chosen this name because it reflects our own personal journey and desire to continually grow in relationship with God.

"Blessed are those who trust in the LORD; the LORD will be their trust. They are like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: It does not fear heat when it comes, its leaves stay green; In the year of drought it shows no distress, but still produces fruit." (Jeremiah 17:7-8)

One of our goals is to build a lasting relationship with God through daily prayer. We decide on prayer points for the weeks ahead and then spend 15 minutes a day using different Ignatian Prayer Styles. We then share about our prayer experience and spiritual life in our group meetings twice a month. We also participate in social events and retreats with other Dong Hanh groups. It is in this way that we continue to deepen our connection with God and our community.

Prayer for Roots:
Please pray that God grants us his guidance to choose the path he intends for us each step of the way. Several of us are in dynamic stages of our life where there are many different paths we may choose. It is only in hearing God’s call that we can choose the path which bring the most life to ourselves, our community, and the world around us.
