The free templates from Effective Church Communications can be used as is—but you can also modify them!
Many ECC Members have done that over the years and I love it when they send me the final result.
The one here (after the link) is by Georgia Bamber from Harvest Assembly in Toronto, Canada. She took the postcard with this text on it, changed the background and put it into her newsletter that she does in MS Publisher.
Not only did she encourage me (and I hope inspire all of you with her shared example), but she called the text "a poem." I hadn't really thought of it as this and a number of similar things I'd written (and make freely available to you) as poems before. I looked up the definitions of prose and poetry and she was right.

PLEASE DO send me your creations or modifications along with permission to use them and I will pass them on to inspire others.Continue Reading
