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.
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 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).
Jim Harris, an artist and pastor from Staunton, Virginia, shares his faith-filled talent with the Society of St. Andrew, through a series of four paintings that began being featured on SoSA’s Alternative Christmas Cards, beginning in 2018.
Jim combines a love for biblical narrative, for color, texture, and mystery into his work, delighting the eye and nourishing the soul. More of Jim’s work can be seen at: https://jim-harris.pixels.com.
The Artist’s Inspiration
“This painting was inspired, in part, by these wonderful lyrics, ‘Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.’* I imagined that with the census requiring people from all over to return to their ancestral home there might be people of different skin colors in Bethlehem at the time when Jesus was born in a stable. Children are naturally curious and they, like most of us, love to see a baby. They love baby Jesus, and Jesus loves them, as he does all of us.”
“We have been charged with loving others as we love ourselves, and feeding the hungry is a great way to do that. I admire the work of The Society of St. Andrew and I know they show the love of Christ to all who need a meal. When we give to support their work we share in the blessing of loving and helping others in Jesus’ name.” — Jim Harris, Artist
