This year, through advent, we have decided to do a Jesse Tree with the children. Have any of you done one before? The idea of the Jesse Tree comes from Isaiah 11:1-9, where God promises a discouraged nation that the glory they remember from David’s time will come again. They will have another king from Jesse’s family, in whose reign the whole earth will know God. We have seen that prophecy fulfilled through Jesus.
The Jesse tree has a symbol for each day, and focuses on the lineage of Christ as well as God’s prophecies, promises and miracles. For example day one is a dove and we reflect on God making creation and the peace intended. I am planning on sharing each days devotion on my blog, and shall begin on November 28th through to December 25th, so please read along if you want.
