To: maranathaclass@gmail.com

At times we dwell to much on joys and concerns. I agree with you
these could be e-mailed in to you in advance. You will still get a
few that will need to be addressed that day. I think you are doing a
great job.

Thanks,

Mickey

I too appreciate the tough job that William is doing. As an
occasional teacher of this class I know how daunting getting up in
front of this group of folks can be so I know that John and I
appreciate the job that William is doing.

I also do believe that joys and concerns are the key to our class. We
tried previously to have a ‘box’ where people would drop joys and
concerns into it and it would be read to the class. That might work
for some but I think for the majority of people they would like to
voice what’s on their heart.

We might try both for a while and see how that works, but in any
event, I want to reiterate that we should thank William for his
willingness to step up when no one else was interested. I’ll get off
my soap box for now.

Thank you Lord for this wonderful group of people who can air their
differences and come together for the good of all.

I believe that our joys, concerns, and announcement section is very
important, but the problem is people won’t sit down in a timely
manner. when we first attended the class, it was very bothersome not
to be able to get to the coffee, people mingle in front of the doorway
and snack table, we have a very large classroom and people mingle in
the way. the president tries to get people to sit down but he is
ignored for a period. William is doing a great job. i believe he
stepped out of his comfort zone to take on this job. My hat is off to
him. keep doing what you’re doing and maybe we can all be happy.

I just wanted to say that I love our joys and concerns section. I
really like that we spend the time on issues that clearly are
important to many individual members of our class. I hope we keep
things exactly the way that they are now. And, I think our president
is doing a great job. Thank you to him.

It has been brought to my attention that several members feel we are
spending to much time with Announcements and Joys and Concerns. I
apologizes to any and all who are irritated by this. It has been one
of my goals has President to make sure the speaker has plenty of time
to speak and that Choir members are able to hear as much of the
speaker as possible. So, Thank you to the class for keeping me on my
toes, it is greatly appreciated.
Having said that, and discussing this with Michelle Place, I am going
to offer another avenue for Announcements and Joys and Concerns.
Email:
willaim.meyer(at)yahoo.com
maranathaclass(at)gmail.com

The Yahoo address I check twice a day. The Maranatha address I check
once a day, sometimes twice. The announcements and Joys and Concerns
will be forward right away. However, let us keep in mind we will have
those who prefer to address the class and this option is still open.
Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Sincerely

William Meyer
