A Mason Jar Advent

Before there was plastic, we preserved summer’s bounty in simple Mason jars, so that even in the barren days of winter, we could taste God’s goodness and foretaste the bounty and harvest to come.

Our Mason jar  Advent activity is all about keeping things simple and helping preserve what’s truly important:  hope, peace, joy, and love.  Advent is a season for stepping away from the frantic busy-ness, the clutter of stuff wrapped in plastic—and embracing instead a time to slow down, breathe, and refocus on God’s love and goodness.

Pick up your Mason jar on the Cards of Caring table and pull out one tag each day during Advent to spark a discussion, to help someone else, or to be grateful for the things that we have.
