Liturgical tree

This morning, we made a start on our Jesse tree - hanging some symbols depicting Jesus' ancestors. (With an impromptu rendition of Father Abraham when his pic appeared) As we did that, we considered our place in that lineage.
We're also planning to use the tree as a tree of remembrance for our quiet Christmas service - for those bereaved - in a couple of weeks.
The decorative sanctuary tree will appear next week but it's great to have a liturgical tree as well this year that we can use as we reflect our way through advent.

Liz, This was a really good service. The father abraham song and actions did the trick! It was good to be back. Well done.Tx

I do not know how long ago I sang about father Abraham. There must be a host of others which would be great to hear again.

Liz where did you get the tree - I was toying with this idea but left it too late to get a suitable tree!

Danny, when I explained what I was hoping to do, my wonderful enquirer tracked down a twig tree at Dobbies - he's worth his weight in gold(and he reads the blog!!)

Thanks Liz... I'll maybe get one this year in anticipation of next Advent.
