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 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 700 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 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: https://jim-harris.pixels.com.
The Artist’s Inspiration
What about the innkeeper’s role in the Christmas story? He is usually portrayed as selfish or mean, the man who turned away Mary and Joseph. Isn’t that unfair? What was he to do? The inn was full of people required by the census to return to their ancestral home. There were likely far more people in Bethlehem than available rooms. In that time stables were often located under houses, with the heat from the animals helping warm the living quarters. In my painting, the innkeeper and his wife have brought food for the young family and a treat for their donkey. They are prosperous but caring. I do these Christmas cards for The Society of St. Andrew because I am blessed beyond measure, and I love being able to help feed hungry people. Thank you for purchasing this card, together we are making a difference in the fight against hunger. – Artist, Jim Harris
