If you are not currently a member of our LifeTimers group, you are missing out on lots of fun. As LifeTimers, we “live LIFE fully for the TIME God gives us.” We warmly welcome Woodland’s members who are 55+ and their friends (we have a strict “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy where age is concerned, so don’t let that keep you away). This is a great opportunity for enjoying a delightful lunch and getting to know others while being entertained by guest performers or speakers. LifeTimers also sponsors local day trips and extended destination trips. LifeTimers gather together on the third Thursday of the month from September through May in Maresh Hall at 11:00 AM. If you are interested in becoming a LifeTimer, please contact our Edith Geurin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to make sure that our LifeTimers group continues to improve and to reflect your wants and needs. With that in mind, we are asking for your input. If you have ideas for future programs or you have contacts with people who have interesting stories to share, please contact Program Coordinator Debby Bussey.
We also want to plan day trips and excursions that are fun, entertaining, and enlightening. Your suggestions for outings would be most welcome. You can contact Lonnie Shuler at email@example.com to share your ideas for day trips.
Finally, we are always looking for writers for our newsletter. If you are interested in writing for our front page devotional or provide any other content you would like to see in the newsletter, contact Marilyn Gladson.
A LifeTimers one-time membership costs $10; our delicious lunch is $5.
April 20 — Robert Flynn
Our own Bob Flynn will be our speaker for the April LifeTimers Program. Here is what Amazon has to say: “An award-winning western novelist (North to Yesterday, Wanderer Springs) with decidedly liberal political leanings writes a spiritual autobiography unlike any other. The author grew up in a small west Texas town, attended seminary, became a war correspondent in Vietnam, and taught creative writing and literature for 40 years at Trinity University in San Antonio. With a deep sense of the irony of his project, he sets out to explain how the Bible came to be, delving into historical misconceptions, errors in translation, political and cultural biases, as well as the editorial failings of the Bible’s many authors – and yet, he arrives at a place of ultimate faith. Holy Literary License is not anyone’s traditional Sunday School material, but contemporary, open-minded Christians will find the book both enlightening and inspirational – and at times, intensely humorous. Flynn, the author of Growing Up a Sullen Baptist, is known for his wry wit and his humane insight. This work is his masterpiece.”
