Last Sunday, we began the series Making Love Last a Lifetime, which studies the scriptural and spiritual importance of love, marriage and sex. Heath lead the class discussion last Sunday, and will again this Sunday. Thanks, Heath, for sending out the additional material for the first segment. If anyone else would like to lead one of the segments of this series, please let me know. We want to give everyone an opportunity to lead discussions, if they want.
We need to make a decision about whether we will hold class on the Sunday after thanksgiving. A couple of you have let us know that you'll be out of town, but it seems like we may have enough still in town. Can you please send me an email if you plan to be in class on Sun, Nov 29?
December Mission Project:
One more question for you. Our service project for this quarter is to participate with the Welcome Home a Hero program, which greets troops as they land in DFW, which is usually their first stop on US soil as they return from overseas for R&R. The question is, do we want to do this on a Saturday, or Sunday? I think from past experience, it seems like the flights usually come in around noon each day, so if we do it on a Sunday, it may be en lieu of class. So, when you reply and let me know whether you'll be in town for Thanksgiving Sunday, please also let me know if you'd prefer to welcome home heros on Sat or Sun. Once the votes are in, we'll pick which Sat or Sun we'll go.
Group Email Update:
Blaire has been working to get our Yahoo group up-to-date with everyone's email address, so that we can use the group email address, rather than sending to each individual address. So, if you have recently recieved and invitation to join the yahoo group, (and you want to continue to get emails about the Genesis class...), please join the group. Email Blaire at firstname.lastname@example.org
Joys and Concerns:
My mom is home and doing much better after having two stents put in to correct the 99% blockage that she had in one of her arteries.
Christy Carlo's mom had hernia surgery on Monday.
Daniel Carlo's dad's surgery didn't go as well as planned. His tumor was too large for them to remove, so they are now exploring other options.
One last thing, Rodney Whitfield will be coming by to talk with our class this Sunday morning at 11.
