I purchased a copy of Ann Voskamp's The Greatest Gift and we will be using that as a guide to our advent season this year. It's a gorgeous book. I am very pleased with it. The daily readings for advent are full of meaningful reflection and draw the readers attention back to focus on the anticipation of a Saviour, and the fullfillment of that promise.
Along with these readings we will be building a Jesse Tree. A Jesse Tree essentially depicts the lineage of Christ, with Jesse at the bottom and then working its way up to the Christ. Our tree has a broad trunk and at the base are the verses found in Isaiah 11:1-2 & 10.
will be a banner of salvation to all the world.
|I drew out the form of the tree on some heavy card board and then we added all the colour with acrylic paints.|
|They worked so hard and the it looked so pretty!|
