Christian music legends Casting Crowns have spent the last decade exploring profound themes of the Christian faith. But their highly anticipated new album Thrive finds the group going back to their roots – literally.
As lead singer Mark Hall explains, the entire concept for the recording was inspired by a towering, 300-year-old tree he discovered while on a youth outreach trip in Alabama. A local farmhand explained to Mark that the secret to the tree's strength was found in the roots; when the storms come, they anchor the tree and provide stability. But it is the visible growth of the branches – also called "the reach" – that is the ultimate reflection of the foundation's power.
Just as the tree needs both the roots and the reach to serve its purpose on earth, the Christian needs both a sturdy foundation and an outward reach to be effective stewards of the Gospel.
Join Casting Crowns for a powerful, musical journey that
explores just what it means to Thrive.
