Tree of Jesse Advent Calendar

As we enter into this Advent        season we are asked to spend a  little time waiting this year.       Christmas is coming, but what do we do in the mean time? We can spend it in the craziness of the    season by shopping, partying, attending concerts, and generally keeping busy, but this year you are  invited to take a couple moments each day and wait with the art and the stories of God. The Tree of Jesse is often used to retell the stories of the Old Testament while pointing to the coming savior Jesus. The tree uses images on ornaments as an Advent Calendar to   remember God’s story and our story.  Normally these would be placed one at a time on the Christmas tree, but this year we invite you to create your own images, words, and colors of Christmas.

             We invite you to read one story each day in Advent alone or as a family, and then color one      ornament with either a picture, prayer, or doodle as you contemplate what you just read. There is no  judgment in this, only time spent with God. You can either read these from your   favorite bible or in the Spark Story Bible for kids. If you need a copy we’d be happy to lend you one. So take some time this advent and prepare for the coming  savior in a simpler way.
