Back in 1998 two guys named Joey Fann and Brad Grasham started a summer Bible study at their church. You may have heard about the Mayberry Bible study. Well, Joey and Brad are the fellers that started at Twickenham Church of Christ in Huntsville, AL.
Joey is also a member of the Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bullet Board? Chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club so I’ve known him from before he started the Bible study. I was also able to attend 2 of the classes he and Brad did that summer.
Joey went on to write the book “The Way Back to Mayberry: Lessons From a Simpler Time.” A revised and extended version of the original was released in September 2010.
I hope you’ll enjoy the episode as we look a bit deeper in to how things started and what exactly was happening back in 1998.
