Opening Words

Help us to be the always hopeful
gardeners of the spirit
who know that without darkness
nothing comes to birth
as without light
nothing flowers

Welcome

Welcome to the UCE Addiction & Recovery Group. We are a group of people who have
struggled with our own addictions and the addictions of others. We hope to struggle well
together as we work towards finding sanity, peace, love, and healthy relationships in our
lives. We will strive to spend our time together in a spirit of love embracing the inherent
worth and dignity of all. We accept and respect the varied paths that our members will
take to find sanity, peace, love, and healthy relationships. We covenant to to be together
in a safe, confidential environment where we can explore our paths and our stories.

Discussion: The Alternative 12 Steps : A Secular Recovery Guide

We have decided to work our way through this book although folks may bring a different topic if they feel the desire.
For this week we read the forward and the introductions. Pages vi-ix

The book is available online http://aaagnostica.org/2014/07/30/the-alternative-12-steps-second-edition/ and we have copies available at the church for folks to use or buy.

Closing Words

For, while the tale of how we suffer,
and how we are delighted,
and how we may triumph
is never new,
it always must be heard.
There isn't any other tale to tell ...
James Baldwin
