Background Notes:

In response to a request in 2014 that we write a hymn for our congregation’s theme-year “rooted and grounded in love,” Sarah wrote a text that draws heavily on Ephesians 3:1-21.  Readers of this text will see many phrases from this scripture woven into the hymn, with each verse ending with Ephesians 3:17. Further, we extended the root metaphor to include a number of references to growth (e.g., earth, soil, varied forms of plant-life) to enhance the vividness of this phrase. Because our church has both traditional and contemporary praise services, this hymn needed to work in both genres. It is ideally performed by a praise band with bass-guitar and drumset, but can work well accompanied by just a piano if necessary.
