Maranatha Newsletter

Hey, friends:

Attached you will find the Maranatha newsletter for this week, amazingly created long before Friday afternoon! I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, and that all of our current or former service members felt appropriately honored for their service to our country. You hold a very special place in our hearts for what you have done.

This week is the last opportunity to sign up for the trip to Miami to the Coleman Theatre on June 12th. Please let me know if you want to go but cannot be in class this week. We must have your reservation and your payment in order to purchase your tickets next Monday, June 6th.

Ginny & Jerry LeDoux’s daughter Michelle is coming from Texas to be our speaker for the next two weeks, so I am confident that you won’t want to miss hearing her. She has quite an impressive resume and I am looking forward to her remarks.

Have a good week and remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Hey, friends:

Whew! Barely got the newsletter out this week with all the travel for birthday and travel for clients. I appreciate your patience.

Remember that this Sunday is our Maranatha Holiday Brunch with the Horizon’s class. Bring your favorite brunch treat and be prepared to spend a pleasant hour talking with interesting people from our class and from Horizons. We can look forward to spending the time together.

For those of you traveling to other locations, have a wonderful time, stay safe and "may the road you travel always lead you home."

Have a great weekend and remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by the members of our class.

Hey, friends:

So sorry that the newsletter was delayed this week. It was another week in which my clients needed my undivided attention, so they got it.

I hope you enjoyed our time with Rabbi Sherman as much as I did. The attendance was terrific and his lesson, as always, was instructive and insightful. He is an amazing teacher.

A couple of things of note:

***Our class is serving a mission dinner this Sunday so if you signed up to help, please check with Glenna Arnott or Jim Embrey for details.

***Next week is our Memorial Day Brunch that we are doing jointly with the Horizon’s Class in our classroom. Everyone had such a great time last year with Dave & Melanie Shepherd’s Bluegrass Concert with the Horizon’s Class and talked about how great it was to get to listen to the music and visit with wonderful people from other classes whom we usually rush right past as we hurry to worship. We took that idea to heart and have scheduled three holiday brunches this year with other classes (all in our classroom) so that we can enjoy the company of not just our own members, but also our friends from other classes. This brunch is first, and will be followed by the Labor Day Brunch with Living The Questions Class and Thanksgiving Brunch with Disciples Class. We’ll host them and provide all the paper products; then everyone just needs to bring their favorite brunch dish to share. It should be fun, flavorful, festive and filled with fellowship!

***Sunday is my birthday. As my present, Jim gave me a ticket to Connecticut to go see Larkin, so all of you will need to take care of Jim for me. Have a wonderful class!

Have a great week and remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Hey, friends:

Okay, this is tricky. I feel like a mother hen, afraid that all my ducklings aren’t going to follow me and will somehow end up lost. Remember how I said in class that we would still meet in the Maranatha classroom even though we were partnering with Pilgrimage to hear Rabbi Charles Sherman this coming Sunday? Well, Facilities Manager Cliff Duncan just about snorted coffee out his nose when he heard that one. Apparently the numbers are such that there is no way we can get enough chairs into our classroom to fit everyone. SO WE ARE MOVING TO COMMUNITY HALL FOR JUST THIS ONE SUNDAY, MAY 15TH, TO HEAR RABBI SHERMAN.

All the timing is still the same. (Visiting with friends from 9:30 to 9:45, announcements from 9:45 to 10:00, lesson from 10:00 to 10:40). The only difference for class business is that we probably won’t do joys and concerns since Pilgrimage will also need some time for their announcements.

If you have joys and concerns, please write them out and give them to me so I can put them in the newsletter on Monday.

There will still be snacks and coffee, although we probably need to increase the quantities since Pilgrimage thinks they may have up to 70 people showing up for the lesson. If your cooking muse shows up on Saturday and causes you to want to bring something on Sunday, that would be great but not imperative. Jim and I will grab some bagels, and we have guilty and healthy snacks already covered with our regular schedule. Apparently PIlgrimage does two boxes of donuts each week so they will contribute that. We won’t starve and the coffee is mercifully close in the kitchen.

It should be a great lesson from a great speaker.

See you in Community Hall!

Hey, friends:

Attached please find the Maranatha Newsletter for this week. A couple of things to note.

***Maranatha is being asked to support our own Troop 20 as the scouts go to summer camp. This would involve 5-10 of us writing letters to various scouts on their way to summer camp, encouraging them in their endeavors. It would be particularly meaningful if it could be done by men who were scouts, or by people who had a scout in the family, so that the writer could include personal camp stories. Maranatha is also being asked to provide candy to include in care packages that are sent to all 45 campers. I know from my own bitter experience in trying to get epic chocolate stains out of Larkin’s scout uniforms that chocolate candy is a particularly BAD idea. Any bags of non-chocolate, non-melting candy would be great. If you are willing to write a letter or provide candy, please let me know and I will coordinate getting the name of a boy for you. All letters and candy need to be returned to Maranatha by Sunday, May 29th, and I will then provide everything to Audra sp the care packages can be packed.

***I have had a terrible time with the Maranatha gmail account because it fights with the insane security measures imposed by the law firm’s IT department. (Not literally, but you get the idea.) It is now to the point that I cannot receive any incoming mail via the Maranatha gmail address. I think I can continue sending out the newsletter via Google since that is how all of your addresses are loaded, but PLEASE EMAIL ME AT ME adale if you need me. If you reply to this email, or send something to the Maranatha email account, I will not be able to open it or see it.

***Those of you who have volunteered at Burrough’s Elementary this year (besides being total rockstars!) are invited to a breakfast honoring you this Friday, May 6th, at 9:00 .m. in the school library. Please RSVP to the school ASAP to let them know if you are coming.

Have a great week and know that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.
