#adventbookclub Day 16: Watching and waiting: Adam and Eve

I am reminded of this beautiful carol “Jesus Christ the Apple Tree”.

Trees are all through the Bible, rooted and twined through scripture from beginning to end. From the trees in the Garden to the Tree of Life in Revelation. Trees are about life and growth, rootedness and fruitfulness. In them we find all manner of metaphors for Christian life, discipleship and community.
