There is quote posted on a bulletin board in my office that says, “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. . . ” There is a lot of “unlocking” going on at Edmonton Christian Schools as we head towards Christmas! Here are just a few examples in pictures:
ECNS Gr 4-6 Choir sing at the Festival of trees:
Grade 9 Art students from ECNS help Mosaic Centre get ready for Christmas dinners served to people in need:
Grade 4 students from ECWS show off some of the 180 pairs of gloves they have collected so far for Hope Mission Rescue vans:
ECHS Students and staff pack the food and gifts they donated into (huge) hampers for families from our own community:
Shoeboxes were packed for Samaritan’s Purse by Kindergartens at ECWS and ECNS as well as Gr 3 at ECNS:
Seventy two blankets and $250 collected for Mosaic Centre by ECNS Gr 1 students and boxes of cards and treat bags, made by Gr 2 students at ECNS, for those having Christmas dinner at Mosaic Centre.
God has given us the fullness of love in the child we await this Advent. In gratefulness, we love others, and, lo, a Christmas miracle: we experience the fullness of life! What a story we live in!
