and a branch shall grow out of his roots. (Isaiah 11.1)
This Advent we have a Jesse Tree in the porch at St Mary's. A Jesse Tree depicts the genealogy of Jesus using art and symbols to represent His ancestors. Each of our 24 tree ornaments has been beautifully crafted by a member of the Church Family or wider community. We hung the first on the tree after Morning Prayer today and will be adding one each morning until Christmas. Today's represents the Creation.
