Root is the part of a plant that attaches it to the ground or to a support. The root typically underground, conveying water and nourishment to the rest of the plant. Religious Roots:
It’s important for us to remember our religious roots and look to the past when we need a reminder of how Christianity was born. It will make us pause and be thankful for the religious freedom we enjoy in a world so torn. “It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.” Passover was one of the annual feasts that all Jewish men were required to celebrate in Jerusalem.
