This week we continued our discussion and study of Step 11.
We read and discussed Step 11 in the OA 12 and 12 up to page 97 paragraph 1.
We read the handout “Planning for the day” and the highlights from the handouts by Joe and Charlie.
Next week, I would like us to continue reading the OA 12 and 12, and possibly read the handout by the Big Book Bunch on Step 11 or alternatively, read and share on the highlights from the Unpopular Guide on Step 11.
As we read from these 2 sources, I would like us to also to include in our discussion prayer and meditation and how we can begin to practice both on a daily basis.
Reminder of ongoing personal “homework”: why not read the AA Big Book and the 12 and 12 and create your own personal Step 10 and 11 inventory? I would love us to be able to share with each other what we create!
We are now starting the heart and soul of emotional sobriety: living in the solution, seeking conscious contact with the God of our understanding and carrying the message to those who still suffer.
Please feel free to read the handouts to share your thoughts with the group.
Looking forward to “seeing” you all next week!
Peace: it does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.”(author unknown)
