Parable of the Pickle Jar – label

Kerry G says:

“I’ve had this on my mind since the conference talk. Here’s a PDF with 3 labels to print and tape onto a jar of Pickles. I am giving them out to the sisters I visit teach and just gave one to a less active Young Woman ….

“It’s a great tool for teaching about the Atonement and being born again through Repentance. I am also attaching the PDF with just one label for anyone that may want to print only one and not use up so much ink.

“The single one will fit a jar that is 16oz and does not wrap all the way around. The larger ones also won’t wrap around but were enlarged slightly to go from one side to the other. Anyone printing them off can adjust their print size to accommodate the jar.

A jar with a partial label is recommended.”
