Before we get to the video:
A Quick Podcast Update

Experiencing technical difficulties–the latest podcast of “Tales from the Jesse Tree” (Episode 5) will not be up until Sunday or Monday. Until then, your story assignment is this: What is your favorite biblical story? Look it up and read it–out loud. Then consider the ways you see God in the story–and the ways you find yourself in the story.

Day 5

(Day 6 will not be released until Monday…have a great weekend!)
