A shoot shall come out from the stock of Jesse and a branch shall grow out of his roots. Isaiah 11:1
Celebrating with you the grace and faithfulness of God, revealed through the gift of His son, Jesus Christ… the Root of Jesse, our Messiah, the hope for all the world. Blessings to you at Christmas and throughout the new year.
(Bible verse on cover)
Contemporary image by heritage artist Tomie dePaola of the flowering tree which budded forth from the root of Jesse. A silhouette of the Child Jesus is visible at the top of the tree, revealing his heart—a symbol for the incarnation and outpouring of God's love in Jesus for all humanity.
