DID YOU KNOW THAT FORMER PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER TEACHES A BIBLE CLASS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AT HIS HOME CHURCH IN PLAINS, GEORGIA?I DIDN'T.
My friends from Palm Springs, Keith Coplen and Bryan Kraft, retired heavy-duty political operatives, read somewhere that Jimmy taught a class a few times a year in Plains, and saw that the next date was coming soon. They literally made plane reservations that moment and went. THAT'S how life should be lived, I think. When they returned, they told me that their lives were "forever changed" by the experience.
