Christmas Jars: by Jason F. Wright
Brief Summary from Amazon for “Christmas Jars”: From Publishers Weekly: “In a plot reminiscent of Penelope Stokes’s The Blue Bottle Club and Angela Hunt’s The Note, a journalist happens upon a human interest story that winds up teaching her lessons about love and forgiveness and renewing her own faith in human kindness. On Christmas Eve, twenty-something Hope Jensen is quietly grieving the recent loss of her adoptive mother when her apartment is robbed. The one bright spot in the midst of Hope’s despair is a small jar full of money someone has anonymously left on her doorstep. Eager to learn the source of this unexpected generosity, Hope uses her newswoman instincts to… (continued below)
(continued) … find other recipients of “Christmas jars,” digging until her search leads her to the family who first began the tradition of saving a year’s worth of spare change to give to someone in need at the holiday…” “….. the heart of this novella is its transformative message about the power of giving, a compelling theme that calls to mind books like Pay It Forward and The Kingdom Assignment.”
Category: Contemporary Religious/Inspirational
Release Date: October, 2005
Length: 122 paperback pages
Average Rating (Amazon, Goodreads, etc.): 4.5 stars
Location and Appeal: This story has stayed in my mind since the day I originally read it. It is a rich and meaningful present day story that may inspire you to also collect your spare change all year long, then let your heart lead you to who may need to find it at their door unexpectedly. Just a few coins add up and can be life-changing for someone in need, as well as the one giving the simple gift. Soak in this message, it may become your new tradition. I noticed that there is a follow-up book that continues the story, it is titled “Christmas Jars Reunion“. What a nice set this would be for gift-giving!
