The idea for this reflection on the growth of Adventist church schools started with an annual cycle seen in my garden.
The cycle starts in March.
Time takes its course
Which, in normal conditions
means natural growth.
In the sixteen week growing season, a seed becomes a stunning plant that grows, lifting a large flower over 250 cms (eight feet) above ground.
The flower is like sunrise, lighting the garden from dawn to dusk, the camera capturing part only of this extraordinary example of efficient use of time.
This example generated the idea of studying Adventism through its schools.
