What Does “Sarx” Mean?

We chose the name “Sarx” because, the Gospel of John tells us that, in entering the world, the Word became flesh. The word flesh, or sarx in the original Greek, describes both humans and animals alike.

In becoming flesh, Christ shared many experiences that are common to animals across a wide spectrum of species including hunger, happiness, sickness, pain, bereavement and fear.

It is within a body of flesh that Christ came alongside all He made in love.

Christ, through his own flesh, makes all flesh new; humans and animals alike.
