    Updated:

    PLAINS, Ga. - Weeks after he suffered a broken hip, Jimmy Carter is getting back to his normal routine. That includes the former president returning to teach Sunday school.

    Carter returned to Maranatha Baptist Church in his hometown of Plains for his first Sunday school class since his hip surgery.

    During his sermon, Carter revealed new information about his health and another health scare for his wife Rosalynn.

    "I broke my hip three weeks ago. I was waiting for Rosalynn to come pick me up and I got a phone call saying Rosalynn had a stroke and can't speak. I almost fainted. It was a TIA - a temporary inability - so after two days we came home and we've been home ever since."
