Advent Week 2 Theme is Peace. Justice. Hope.
This week in our house the Advent week 2 theme is peace, justice, and hope. Yesterday’s readings were amazing. There is so much hope in them! That’s precisely why I love the season of Advent. It isn’t just the anticipation of Christmas- yes it is that, of course- but it is the feeling that hope brings. Isaiah dared to hope. He didn’t let the times or the darkness of the world hinder him for seeing that …
A shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. ~Isaiah 11:1
Light two purple candles if you have an Advent wreath for week 2 and pray:
Lord we hope in you.
Discuss– What brings you hope this week? Why is hope so important? When has hope seen you through a difficult time? When it is easy to be discouraged hope keeps us from despair.
This is the verse that the Jesse Tree is based on. You can find Jesse Tree Ornaments and Activities for Advent Week 2 HERE on Harrington Harmonies.
Featuring this week:
You can make a fun winter scene with this art lesson on Grandma Moses. The lesson focuses on perspective, overlapping, and drawing a 3D house. There is also a copywork or notebooking page on Grandma Moses which you can download for free!
Have a great week!
