Unlocking the Fullness

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:

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!

We know that a great deal of the above donations came from the incredible community that supports our schools.  Thank you for being part of the Christmas miracle!
