Opening Words

Invitation

If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by the fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!
Shel Silverstein

 

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 pages 5-10

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

Take courage friends.
The way is often hard, the path is never clear,
and the stakes are very high.
Take courage.
For deep down, there is another truth:
you are not alone.
Wayne Arnason
