Maranatha, May 30, 2010; Request for men to volunteer for a Father’s Day lesson

The Report is arriving a bit later than usual due to the holiday this week, and our hosting family at our house. My apologies for the late posting.

Being the 5th Sunday, it was a Brunch Sunday, and the food was ample and delicious. We also had a great turnout especially considering that it was a holiday weekend.

Ginny Walker gave an inspired lesson, a description of her loving relationship with Jerry, her husband, who resides at Methodist Manor. Ginny and Jerry’s story served as a reminder to us that our personal world can be a fragile one, and when it breaks, we need the support of family, friends, and our Christian faith. Thank you, Ginny, for sharing your story with us! Also, our thanks to Steve Dickie, Executive Director for Methodist Manor, who joined Ginny in describing the Manor and its plans for the future.

We recognized several birthdays and anniversaries: Birthdays – Doug Justice (5/31); Deb Nihiser (5/31); Sharon Bookout (6/2); Debbie Morgan (6/2); Neal Pascoe (6/4); Diane Martin (6/5). Anniversaries – Jeff and Julie Allen (5/30); Terry and Amy Michael (5/30); Steve and Debbie Jacoby (6/4). Celebrate; you deserve it!

It was our pleasure to welcome visitors, as well, including Kay Boswell, Steve and Doris Dixon (returning visitors), Ann Walker (Ginny and Jerry’s daughter), Vicky Langston, and, of course, Steve Dickie.

Joys and concerns were expressed by members and prayers were heard for those who were raised up in need of our help.

Now, I need your help! If you recall, we had several women volunteer to speak on Mother’s Day Sunday regarding being a mother or their own mother. It was a great lesson! On that Sunday, the idea was presented that we do a similar lesson for Father’s Day Sunday, June 20th. So, I’m looking for 3 or 4 volunteers who would speak about 5 or 6 minutes each about either being a father or about your father. I would like to have 4 men, 2 for each topic. If you are interested in volunteering, please let me know as soon as possible. I will take the first volunteers that fit into the two topics.

In June, Rev. Bill Crowell, will be our teacher. He will also teach on June 20th if we don’t have enough men to volunteer for the Father’s Day lesson. Bill’s lessons will be entitled, “A People’s History of Christianity”. This Sunday, June 6th, he will teach about two people, Justin Martyr and Perpetua. See you Sunday!!
