Maranatha News

Hey, Maranatha friends:

This will be my final Maranatha newsletter, as the newsletter will now be in the very capable hands of Dan Blevins. I have appreciated both the opportunity to speak to you each week, and the patience you have employed when the newsletter skated into your mailboxes minutes before the weekend due to my work schedule. I am confident that Dan will be much more punctual!

For those that were not able to attend the All Church Christmas Brunch and might be wondering how it went, I have a few observations. Jim Embrey will finalize our ticket count and Suzie Butterworth will calculate whether we lost or made any money to be turned over to the BAUMC Mission Endowment Fund as we promised. But my thoughts add a different computation.

On Christmas morning, as I struggled out of bed at zero dark thirty, I was filled with giant trepidation. I was mentally kicking myself for having created this crazy situation and having brought all these lovely Maranatha people along for the ride. I had been hugely humbled throughout December as Maranatha member after Maranatha member stepped forward to bake wonderful goodies for the pastry table, to bring a sea of milk and juice, to gather in the midst of their own holiday cooking to create the casseroles to serve our guests. Each time I thought, “Will anyone agree to do this?” virtually everyone who could make his/her schedule work rushed to help. Generous Ruth Giessen, in addition to cooking pastries, ever offered her talented family to play their harps during the brunch so we could have the lovely sound of live music. The lead-up to the brunch was overwhelming, and I was nervous that the actual event would be a letdown.

I needn’t have worried. As each beautiful, sleep-deprived Maranatha person arrived, they came in ready to smile and serve and spread cheer. It was a true joy to work alongside them. During the course of the morning, I made three distinct observations:

(1) Jim Embrey organized this event for months and kept us on track right up through 12/24. Then he handed the baton to Rex Donley who created the most unbelievably detailed minute-by-minute chart of what we were to accomplish that it was impossible to either deviate or fail. Truly, as a person who loves spreadsheets and organization, other than the faces of my children it may be the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! But all of Rex’s organization was magnified by Allene encyclopedic knowledge of the BAUMC kitchen and its contents. Without Allene, we would have struggled to find what we wanted or know how to use it. With her, we barely finished sentences of, “Where is the . . .” before Allene would find it, show us how to use it, and have us hard at work. Together these three great organizers made the Maranatha volunteers a mighty force indeed.

(2) An even greater joy than the organization of the task was the ownership of the work by the entire group. Everywhere I went I heard Maranatha members talking earnestly about the tasks that they had been given and the best way to attack them. Carol Maus, Sarah Maldonado, Julee Embrey and Sharon Bookout reorganized the pastry table into a work of art. Mickey Maus directed patrons to the serving line with a flair that made them feel they were being shown into the Oval Office. Rita Singer’s actual job was just to serve fresh fruit, but she augmented that job by greeting each guest with a beautiful, beaming smile and a warm, “Are you hungry this morning?” Everywhere I looked, Maranatha members did what they had been asked to do, but they did more of their own volition and they did it warmly, with love and affection for those they were serving. I have rarely been so proud.

(3) But the absolute best part about our brunch was the group that we served. I may be in the slow reader group, but even in the press of serving casserole to every guest, I began to notice the demographics. While there were isolated pockets of young families with adorable children in their jammies, the overwhelming majority of our guests (probably 85-90%) were older couples or older women on their own. They came early, dressed in their Christmas finest, ate well, and stayed happily at the tables talking with others. At 10:30, we had a full dining room of folks still chatting. They only began to drift to the sanctuary when Sam and Larkin none-too-subtlely began stacking chairs and tables! From the smiles on their faces and the comments that they made, I realized that what we had done was give these people somewhere to go on Christmas morning. These were the BAUMC folks who might have been home alone that morning, but because of us, they had a reason to get up and get dressed, to go somewhere that they were welcomed and wanted. They were thrilled to have somewhere to go and it was extraordinarily moving to those of us who were there to see that we had changed what might otherwise have been a lonely day for people who should never be lonely. When this epiphany finally hit me, the lure of my warm bed didn’t seem appealing at all.

So those are my thoughts. I believe we served a group that needed us and added a lustrous sense of community to what might have been an all-too-quiet day for them. We did so while revealing again the true generous and loving hearts that make up Maranatha and make me so grateful to be part of you. Thank you for giving Jim and me the opportunity to lead this past year. Now we will slip back to our aisle seats where Jim can continue his practice of displaying wild socks and I can retire my newsletter keyboard.

Much love from both of us.

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Hey, Maranatha friends:

We are right on the cusp on Christmas. I hope you are filled with Christ-centered Christmas joy, not bogged down with secular, shopping center mania. I hope the people that you love best are close to you and you have time to enjoy them. I hope that there will soon be great smells coming from the kitchen (or the microwave or the delivery bag – not judging!) and that you look forward to picking up your fork. I hope that there is a light in your eye, a carol in your ear, a smile on your lips and a hug just waiting to burst out of your arms.

May you, my sweet, warm, generous, boisterous, energetic, rowdy, lively, animated, hard-working, dedicated, laughter-filled Maranatha, feel in this season all the love that you have helped spread in the class, in the church, and in the community all year long.

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Hey, Maranatha friends:

Another week and we draw ever closer to the birth of the baby who brings us all together. I hope during this crazy busy season you have had at least a moment to reflect upon how fortunate we are to have our church, our class and each other. I know that when I count my blessings, you are right there on the list.

Just a few things to note:

1) Thank you so much for those of you who have signed up to bring mini-muffins, sweet breads, orange juice or milk for us to provide at the All Church Brunch. Remember that you can drop that off in the kitchen whenever you like. Just make sure that it is marked for Maranatha so some hungry soul doesn’t start munching before the brunching!

2) Thanks also to those of you who are going to assemble the casseroles this Friday, December 23rd, starting at 1:00 in the BAUMC kitchen. This will make things so much easier when the first crew arrives before dawn on Christmas morning!

3) For those who want to participate but haven’t yet sign up for anything, sign-up sheets will go around in class again this Sunday. If you want to participate, but won’t be in class, just email, text or call me and let me know how you want to help. We appreciate all assistance!

4) We’ll send out crew assignments next week to those actually working the brunch so you’ll know your station before you arrive. (You didn’t actually think Chief Embrey was going to go into this culinary skirmish without a battle plan, did you?)

5) Still need some ticket sellers around the 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 services on Christmas Eve, so if you are going to one of those services and could spend a few minutes before and after in the Parlor at our table, we would really appreciate it.

6) We are asking all Maranatha members that will be working the Brunch to purchase tickets so we know the count for food. Yes, the McCanns will be paying $25.00 for the privilege of hauling Molleigh, Larkin and my mother out of bed at 5:00 a.m. on Christmas Day to get to the church by 6:00. But that way, there will be enough food for everyone to eat when the sleepy McCanns are finally awake!

7) I promise not to have another ridiculous idea like this for at least seven years . . .

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Hey, Maranatha friends:

Several important items to note for the next few days:

1) If you signed up to bring gifts for children with incarcerated parents or the Exodus House program, please bring them to class this Sunday, 12/11, or contact Sharon Earley to make other arrangements.

2) Scott Morgan is representing Maranatha at the Christmas Party for Exodus House on Tuesday, 12/13. We have a gift for Terri Thomas, our resident, and Scott will give it to her that night. Scott has asked that class members bring Christmas cards for Terri to class this Sunday and he will take them to the party to give to her. If you prefer, you could mail a card to her instead. If you would like to attend the party, please contact Sharon Earley.

3) We have permission to sell tickets to our All Church Christmas Brunch before and after the 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 services on 12/24 in the Parlor. If you could be available to sit at a table in the parlor and sell from 1:45 to 2:00, 3:00 to 3:15, 3:45 to 4:00, 5:00 to 5:15, 5:45 to 6:00 or 7:00 to 7:15, please contact Jim Embrey.

4) We need class members to make Christmas breads or small muffins for the sweets table at the Brunch. You can make them at home and drop them off at the church anytime during the week of 12/18 through 12/24. If you are going to be doing so, please let Angie know so she will know if we will have enough, or have to spend class funds to purchase breads and sweets.

5) We also need class members to bring containers of orange juice and milk for use at the Brunch. These can also be dropped off at the church anytime during the week of 12/18 through 12/24 and stored in a special spot in the church refrigerator. If you are going to do so, please let Angie know so she can keep track of quantities and determine whether we need to spend class funds to purchase extra juice and milk.

6) We will be having Casserole Day on 12/23 in the church kitchen, starting at 1:00. This is when we will make the casseroles that we will serve at the Brunch. Anyone is welcome to come help cook them, male or female – the more the merrier! Please let Angie know you are coming so we can be prepared for all our chefs!

7) Our speaker this week is Michelle Place, our prayer will be by Lynn Jessee Russell, and our snacks will be provided by the Manduanos and the Russells.

8) Scott Solomon is still undergoing a rigorous week of evaluation at Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO, so he hasn’t yet begun this program of therapies. However, the doctors told him that because his core was so fit and strong, he is capable of learning to scuba dive. Scott is very pleased! Our tree was delivered and Dana seemed to like it. Our other two plans are in the works, but I won’t discuss them here since Dana and Stuart will read this email! Thank you to Maranatha for all your love and support.

So sorry that it wasn’t a full email, but client needs had to come first this week. But excitingly, Dan Blevins has agreed to be the Newsletter Editor for 2017, so you will hopefully not have any dereliction of duty like you have had from me! Our last position was also filled as Scott Gardner & Jim McCann agreed to reprise their roles as Auction Chairs again. Maranatha has a full set of officers for 2017!

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.

Maranatha News

Hey, Maranatha friends:

We are hoping to see all or as many as possible of you tonight at the Christmas Dinner and Auction at 6:00 at the Tulsa Country Club. It promises to be a special night, but it will be better if you are there.

I have included within our Joys & Concerns section of the newsletter a brief update on Scott Solomon, in an attempt to respond to so many of you who have called, texted and emailed me to get the latest information. Scott has recovered well from the surgery on his back and is now ready to begin rehabilitation to develop the new skills that he will need to gain maximum independence to resume his life. He has an extraordinarily positive and upbeat attitude, and is ready to tackle this new challenge. Together, the Solomon family has determined that the optimal place for Scott to attack his rehab is the Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO (a suburb of Denver). The Craig Hospital specializes in spinal cord injuries and is one of the top places in the country to work with Scott. He will be transferred there this weekend, and will be working with them for 45-60 days. Dana will follow on Monday for at least 30 days, and Stuart and Michael will go as soon as Michael is out of school for the Christmas holiday.

Dana, Michelle Place and I have determined that the best system for updating the multitudes of people who love the Solomons and are eager to hear how the family is doing is the same system that Michelle utilized when Larkin had a lengthy hospitalization many years ago. That is, Dana will contact Michelle when she has news to report. Michelle will send out an email to everyone who has asked to be on the email list. These updates probably won’t be daily, but they will be more frequent that the weekly Maranatha newsletter in which I will summarize the information (at least for the next month until the new Newsletter Editor takes the position – please!). Thus, if you would like to be on Michelle’s email list for more frequent updates, please contact Michelle at mplace to let her know to add you to the list (or you can let me know that you want to be on the list and I will forward your email to her).

One day at a time, one concern at a time, one prayer at a time. Sometimes, that’s all we’ve got. Let’s hang on to that, and each other.

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.
