Planting Resurrections: Our Dreams

In May 2016, we dreamed of ways that God wants to plant resurrection through us. Worshipers wrote their hopes, passions, and callings down on paper seeds, and we "planted" them at the altar. One plants, another waters, and God will give the growth (1 Corinthians 3:6-9)!"
