Jesse Tree – Day 1, 2 & 3

by Josée

We are now on Day 3 of our Jesse Tree reflections! The first night was hilarious (and frustrating) so we changed a few things and modified our expectations. Things are going a lot smoother now.

We use a variety of books during our reflection time. Our main books are the Bible and The Advent Jesse Tree: Devotions for Children and Adults to prepare for the coming of the Christ child at Christmas by Dean Lambert. We are also using a variety of picture books from our collection or the library. Here is what we’ve done so far:

Day 1: The Light in Creation 

We read about the creation account from A Family Treasury of Bible Stories and then did the devotion from The Advent Jesse Tree (see above).

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
Genesis 1:1

Day 2: The First Sin

We read Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden by Jane Ray, a beautiful picture book, and then read the devotion from The Advent Jesse Tree book.

A fruit with a snake wrapped around it.
Genesis 3: 1-10

Day 3: Inside the Ark

Tonight we’ll read from Noah’s Ark by Lucy Cousins and Noah’s Ark by Jerry Pinkney and the read then devotion from our Advent reflection book.

An Ark.
Genesis 6: 5-8, 7:27-23, 9:16
