Roots : Our April Spiritual Theme

Our Chalice Circle thoughts and questions around the theme of Roots are
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
What are some of your roots that have kept you centered during times of frost?

“You can’t hate the roots of a tree and not hate the tree.” – Malcolm X
What are the roots of a strong dislike that you feel about something today? Are they personal? How so?

“No risk is more terrifying than that taken by the first root. A lucky root will eventually find water, but its first job is to anchor.” – Hope Jahren
When have you risked growing roots? What was the risk?

“The higher a tree wants to rise, the lower its roots must grow.” – Matshona Dhliwayo
What is your deepest root?
