Former President Jimmy CarterJimmy CarterJimmy Carter released from hospital Booker notes 'anger' over more billionaires than black candidates in 2020 race New Hampshire parochialism, not whiteness, bedevils Democrats MORE taught a Sunday school lesson less than two weeks after he fell in his Georgia home and broke his pelvis.

Carter, 95, taught a 45-minute-lesson Bible lesson on life after death at Maranatha Baptist Church on Sunday, using a motorized lift chair at the front of the room, the Associated Press reports.

More than 400 people were present in the main hall and in overflow rooms to watch Carter speak.

During the lesson, Carter said he is “at ease” with the idea of dying and believes in life after death, the AP reports.


Initially the church announced last week that Carter would not be teaching while he recovers from his second fall this month.

Carter was hospitalized after falling in his home and fracturing his pelvis earlier this month. He was released days later and returned to his home in Plains, Ga., to recover.

Carter, the longest-living former U.S. president, also fell at his home last month and required stitches. The following day he showed up — with a bandage on his head and a bruise on his left eye — to volunteer to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity in Tennessee.
