“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”
Maria Robinson, Writer

We had an amazing lesson today taught by Dr. Brandon Scott, Darbeth Professor of New Testament, Phillips Theological Seminary; the title of his lesson was “Resurrection: A Quiz”. Following the late service, our Maranatha “Group of 8” lunched together, and we were still energized by Professor Scott’s words to us. If you weren’t able to be in class today, visit our website, http://maranathaclass.org, and go to Class Recordings where you can hear (or re-hear) Dr. Scott’s presentation. The podcast will probably be posted in the next day or so. And, while you’re at the website, sign up (subscribe); we hope to begin using this site even more in the future as a communication tool for the class.
Today, we recognized birthdays: Art Campbell (2/7), Sherry Stinson (2/70), Karey Low (2/8), Jerry LeDoux (2/11), and Kate Thomas (2/12); and anniversaries: the Maldonados and Worthingtons. Celebrate!
Refreshments and greetings were provided by Lynn and Bob Russell as well as Judith and Ed Payton. There were several announcements, the Chili Supper is February 21st (contact Suzy or Denny Meredith-Orr) and the Valentine’s Dinner is February 12th (contact Pam Sherman). Joys and Concerns were expressed by members. Concerns were shared for Dr. Biggs and his family regarding the death of his Mother last Thursday evening, also Pam’s friend, Terry, who has untreatable brain cancer, and Mary’s friend in the Marines. Carol told us that she is now 10 years cancer-free, a great Joy for her and all of us who call Carol our friend.
We welcomed several visitors, and introduced Patti and Gary Smith as new members. If you know Patti and Gary (or even if you don’t know them), contact our new members this week to let them know how happy we are to have them join our group.
Next week, Rob Reck, our resident “composer” and musician extraordinaire, will share his report to the class on his trip to London where his musical work was debuted last year. It always a great class when Rob is our teacher. Join us; invite others!
Have a great week!

Richard Wansley and Meredith Davison
