“I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree…”
Yes, you guessed it right! The quoted words make up the very first line of the poem “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer. One way or the other we can picture out a cute little kid, trying to muster the courage to stand in front of the class as his English teacher listens intently during a pre-rehearsed recitation exercise. I’m sure you will agree with me that the whole context of this literary piece is to educate children on how important it is to preserve nature. For us, this serves as a reminder that we all should have a part in saving mother earth.
It is through this sense of social responsibility that the staff of Jesus Christ To God be the Glory Church International together with the employees of Gere Enterprises, held a SEED PLANTING ACTIVITY at La Mesa Eco Park in Quezon City last August 17, 2013.
With this, the attendees would like to describe in a form of a short poem the experience that we will treasure on that very reminiscent day:
August how much we loved you so dearly
When we as one Church woke up so early
17th of that same month we planted
But not to anywhere we had wanted
Planting trees in La Mesa Eco Park
Was an experience close to the heart
Also they taught us to conserve water
The world now thirsts doth say so the speaker
But who there can forget the cultured worms
Though valued by nature, made the girls squirm
Then we all thought that our joy has ended
Little did we know it all just started?
We grouped ourselves, played games, had fun all day
And though rain drizzled we we’re there to stay
Now lies an end to every beginning
But we shall never forget the feeling
Of true joy that God shared nature to us
Protecting this is a task we all must
We are glad to make it known to you dear readers, that this event is just one of the many activities that our Church is involved in to promote social responsibility. We urge you to keep on visiting this website for more updates on events such as this.
To God be all the Glory!
