Honor Your Family and Friends While Sharing Good Food with Families in Need

Back by demand: the Alternative Christmas Art Print. This special print features Jim Harris’s artwork from the 2021 Christmas Card AND it shares good food in areas of high need.

Only 300 prints are available in this annual series from artist Jim Harris. If you’re interested in this special artistic gift, be sure to act fast!

Your gift honors your recipient while making a difference in the lives of the many Americans experiencing the reality of hunger and poverty this Christmas season. America is still the richest nation on earth, but more than 40 million of its citizens suffer in poverty. This Christmas you can give these families hope and some good food. You can do this by honoring your loved ones with a gift and a donation to SoSA.

The Gift

Each print is available with a $35 (minimum) gift donation to the Society of St. Andrew (SoSA) and shares more than 1,000 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables with families in great need. 

The illustration is 8” x 10” and is featured on an 11” x 14” matte. A standard 11” x 14” frame works perfectly and makes for an extra special gift this holiday season.

The Print

The Alternative Christmas Print features artwork designed exclusively for, and donated to, the Society of St. Andrew by Virginia artist James Harris. 

The full-color, 11″ x 14” print features the artwork at the dimensions of 8” x 10”. This print is accompanied by a short letter that announces your generous gift to feed the hungry in the name of your chosen honoree(s).

The Artist

Jim Harris, an artist and pastor from Staunton, Virginia, shares his faith-filled talent with the Society of St. Andrew, through a series of paintings that began being featured on SoSA’s Alternative Christmas Cards, beginning in 2018. 

Jim combines a love for biblical narrative, color, texture, and mystery into his work, delighting the eye and nourishing the soul. More of Jim’s work can be seen at:

The Artist’s Inspiration

“This is not meant to be ‘The Three Wise Women’, though they are wise. More importantly, they are caring. As I imagine it, the news of a baby being born in a stable quickly spread throughout the small village of Bethlehem, and along with it came gossip, speculation, and suspicion.

These three women saw a need and decided to fill it. Because of their life experiences and familiarity with being poor or distrusted they wanted to help this young family. One brought a jar of fresh water, having no idea that baby Jesus would grow to give others “living water”.

Another brought fresh baked bread and clean strips of cloth for swaddling the baby who would one day say, “I am the bread of life”. And the third one brought a basket of fruit especially overflowing with grapes for the one who would come to say, ‘I am the vine…’ They could not know that thirty years later Jesus would kneel and wash his disciples’ feet with water, then share in the Passover meal using the bread and the wine as reminders of his sacrifice that was to take place on the cross. They only knew there was a need and they wanted to fill it.

This is why we give to the Society of St. Andrew. There is a need, and we can help. When we truly care about the needs of others, we naturally share what we can to help them, no matter who they are or why they are needy.

I am extremely grateful to the Society of St. Andrew for allowing me to give my art to this great cause. Bless you for caring about the hungry and for sharing this card with others so they too can care and share. Merry Christmas!” -Artist, Jim Harris
