A Very Special Easter
The Legend of the Trees--God's Purpose for Us
The Legend of The Three Trees is a timeless retelling of the classic folktale of three distinct trees, each with its own hopes, dreams and aspirations of greatness.
But their dreams don't seem to come true. The trees despair about their existence until they each finally interact with Jesus Christ--one at His birth, one at His ministry and one at His ultimate sacrifice. They learn that God has a special purpose for each of them in His kingdom.
