#adventbookclub Day 21: O Root of Jesse

O Root of Jesse,

In you are planted all people

And from you springs

Life and growth.

You are the one

Who roots us in the truth

Of who we are in you.

You bind together

All our identities,

Not negating but fulfilling.

Come, keep us rooted

In the love which binds us

Into your life.
