Leaves From the Jesse Tree


Last year at church we used some Advent notes by David Coffey which briefly mentioned the "Jesse Tree" -  used by many Christians as an alternative to the more familiar Advent Calendar.

The Jesse Tree is decorated with symbols relating to the coming of the Messiah as foretold in Scripture - from Genesis through to the Gospels.

Above is a picture of one I made earlier! So this year I've prepared a whole month of bible notes entitled "Leaves from the Jesse Tree" round this theme, for members of our congregation. Just a simple thought, and a few verses, for each day of Advent, as we prepare our hearts for Christmas.

  1. Lovely! Looking forward to hearing more from you about Advent!

  2. I clicked on the link but ended up at a contact page for Kirby Muxloe Free church.

    I started to make a Jesse tree last year but overcomplicated it and ended up not doing it.

  3. Oops- try again Sarah, I think I did the wrong hyperlink.Sorry!

  4. I love it! I'm going to buy myself an Advent calendar as I prepare my heart for Christmas. We use the candle ring that my family used. It's time.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
