The Jesse Tree

tree_of_jesse

The Jesse Tree is back: The shoot sprung from the root of Jesse reminds us of the
Jewish ancestry of Jesus, the many men and women of the Old Testament waiting for and
preparing the coming of the Messiah; it reminds us too of the new shoot sprung from the
broken stump, the Advent hope of a new beginning and renewal. Each week we will add
members of Jesus’ Family tree, waiting with us and helping us prepare for His Advent.
