Daniel Grothe: The Power of Place
In The Power of Place, pastor Daniel Grothe speaks to the human ache for home and makes a countercultural case for staying put. We can explore and bounce from place to place, never settling down or making anywhere home. Whether it's a new job, a new city, a new group of friends, or even a new church--somewhere along the way, we discover we're missing something. We may be paying our bills and have a roof over our heads, but we're lonely and unfulfilled, disconnected and unsatisfied. He calls us to reject the myth of Christian individuality and instead embrace the richness of commitment and community, arguing that we must stay in one place as long as we can, plant our lives, and let roots take hold. Because only then can we experience the deep fulfillment, friendship, and fruitfulness God created us for.
