Jesse Tree - Day 3

Dec

Day 3 - Noah and A New Beginning

Bible Ref: Genesis 6, Ornament: Rainbow

Time passed and many people filled the Earth.  Everyone everywhere had forgotten about God and were only doing bad things all the time.

God’s heart was filled with pain when he saw what had happened to the world he loved.  Everywhere was disease and death and destruction – all the things God hates most.

Advent prayer - Friday 2nd December

Dec
02

Prayer idea for today:

Pray the Jesus prayer over and over again:

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Pray it silently, pray it out loud, pray it until it becomes as natural as breathing.

 

Prayer starter:

Lord, I am so grateful...

Introduction to Advent Prayer & Day 1

Dec
01

Advent Sunday has just passed but Advent gathers momentum once the chocolate calendars come out. Advent really is one of the most chaotic times of the year for many, when the focus in the western world, pretty much from October onwards, is on being ready for Christmas Day. Buying the (right) presents, cleaning and decorating the house, writing and posting cards, the supermarket mayhem and the travel to or arrival of family. Not forgetting the parties, and the inevitable germy nasties that also do their worst at this time of year.

Jesse Tree - Day 1

Day 1 – God’s First Day

Bible Ref: Genesis 1, Ornament: Planet Earth

In the beginning there was nothing. 

Nothing to hear. Nothing to feel. Nothing to see.  Only emptiness, darkness....and nothing.

But God was there. And God had a wonderful plan.

“I’ll take this emptiness,” God said, “and I’ll fill it up! Out of the darkness I’m going to make light! And out of nothing, I’m going to make EVERYTHING!”

God spoke.  That’s all. And whatever he said, it happened.

Dear Reader

This autumn 24 ladies from across our Parish and ECS have come together to create something very special for our families to take part in this Advent.  

We have created 24 beautiful, lovingly handmade ornaments to represent a story from creation through to the birth of Jesus Christ.

Each day throughout Advent we have a bible story to read with our families, and an ornament to hang on our tree.  Our Jesse Trees.
