• The Jesse Tree: A Family Craft for the Story of Advent

    The Bible readings (one for each day of Advent) of the Jesse Tree tell the story of Jesus' family tree and trace the history of God's people from the creation of Man in the Garden of Eden, the Great Flood, Moses and the Burning Bush, Joseph and his coat of many colors, Elijah, Isaiah, Samuel and David, to the Incarnation. A brief explanation of each Bible story and meditation offer the opportunity to explore - as a family - the Bible readings, God's plan for His people and how we can prepare for the great gift of Christmas. Families can make their own Jesse tree of wood dowels drilled and glued together into a tree shape, rough sticks lashed together, a banner, wall hanging or even a large poster. The whole family can draw and color the daily icons on cardboard circles, wooden disks, cloth circles or small jar lids, whatever your imagination, talent and skill can come up with! This little book offers inspiration and suggestions for a family Jesse Tree, with the hope that you will make it your own. There's no "right way" to make a Jesse Tree. There's no "right way" to do the Jesse Tree. But there is your family's way to make your Jesse Tree. Have a blessed Advent!

  • Sheet Music: "Jesse Tree" Advent Song and Paraliturgies for Children by Dennis J. Newman Singers' Edition by GIA Publications, Inc. (G-5192)

    Written to be used during an Advent prayer service involving children, Jesse Tree is a simple but powerful song linking the four weeks of Advent. For example, the first week tells the stories of Noah, Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph. Jesse Tree is a "cumulative song, like The Twelve Days of Christmas. Each refrain gets progressively longer, until, by the final week, the children are able to mentally "step back and see the whole amazing story of salvation. The song is intended to be used along with the presentation of symbols, which are placed on the Jesse Tree by the children. The full score, used by the leader, keyboard player, and cantor, contains the full music: vocals, keyboard, guitar chord symbols, bass, flute, and handbells. (A separate edition is planned for guitar and bass, which will also include a simplified piano part ideal for a student. Separate parts will also be available for flute and handbells.) The full-score edition also contains introductory material about the different ways the song can be used, along with four complete Advent paraliturgies.
