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.
#adventbookclub runs from 1st December until Epiphany. This year we are using “The Art of Advent” by Jane Williams, and raising some money for Mercy UK, a mental health charity over at the JustGiving page here. Search #adventbookclub on Twitter or Facebook to join in the conversation.
