Jesse Tree Kit
Advent Project for Family, Classroom or Parish
Ideal for kids ages 6 to 12
Written by Lynn M. Simms
The Jesse Tree is a wonderful Advent tradition that fosters reflection on salvation history as a preparation for the celebration of Christmas. A Jesse Tree is a tree, or a large banner with a symbolic tree, that is decorated with ornaments or objects that represent Old Testament events from creation to the birth of Jesus. The ornaments are traditionally handmade with explanations of the symbols and a brief verse of Scripture from the story represented.
This Jesse Tree kit offers two options designed to make the Jesse Tree project accessible to any family, class, or parish.
Also included in the kit are a short history of the Jesse Tree, suggested Scripure verses to accompany each ornament, and a Jesse Tree prayer service. Includes a twenty-four page book and a reusable, folded, heavyweight 25 x 29-inch Jesse Tree poster.
