ECACS July Newsletter
"Growing In Christ, Making a Difference."
A Message from ECACS Senior Administration
For the teacher, harvest time
Comes at the end of spring.
The seedlings of ten months ago
Some have grown beyond their reach.
And some have plugged along,
But each has felt the rain, and sun
And heard the master’s song.
Not everyone will be the fruit
That feeds the hungry world.
But each has leaves that wave as flags
Their teacher has unfurled.
