Community Renewal Society

As part of our belief that the gospel message means justice for all people, Root and Branch is a member congregation with Community Renewal Society. CRS “is a 136 year-old faith-based organization that works with communities to address issues of racism and poverty,” and we are proud to contribute to their efforts in Chicago.

Writing is Sacred

Writing is Sacred is a workshop series dedicated to the art of seeing and expressing the scared in everyday life. In collaboration with Chicago writers and teachers, we aim to explore the genre of spiritual writing through community building, expert instruction, and spiritual practice. Workshops are designed for writers and spiritual seekers of all experiences and religious backgrounds.

Our next workshop is set to launch in the latter half of 2019. If you’d like to keep up to date on future programming, let us know at
