O Root of Jesse
Topic: Advent Passage: Isaiah 11–11
Advent means arrival, specifically the arrival of Jesus. So Advent is more than a season, it is a practice. We practice Advent by waiting on Jesus. We can wait on Jesus through use of the ancient O Antiphon Prayers. This week we will use the prayer "O Root of Jesse" to take us to Isaiah 11. What does it mean to wait on Jesus, when the world around us looks like a burnt down forest?
