Imagine how deep the roots of these trees must be. Actually, they aren't deep at all! Redwood trees, even these giants in Sequoia National Park have relatively shallow roots, and no tap root at all. The trees are held up by their roots spreading out widely and intertwining with those of the other trees. They always grow together in groups--lone redwoods aren't to be seen.
Similarly, Christians need to support each other in community, their spiritual roots interwoven one with another, and deep into the foundation of Jesus Christ (Col 2:6).
Rex Morgan's sermon last week featured many photos of redwoods as he branched out into his experiences at Sequoia National Park, and members leafed through their Bibles to twig on various important lessons.
