Playback Links From Our Recent Meetings

FORGIVENESS(1)Hi Everyone!

I am surrendering to my life as it is. Clearly, I must accept that my life circumstances have changed and that I am unable to post as often as I would like on our wonderful blog.

As a reminder, our group takes place on Sunday mornings at 5:30 AM EST.

The telephone conference numbers for our group are:

Telephone conference number: (712) 775-7031 Access Code: 397-681-282

Playback recording number is: (712) 775-7029 Access Code: 397-681-282#

For my own peace of mind, I am posting the playback recording numbers and links to the media fire account for all our recent meetings.

11/12/2017 #51 AA BB Stories: Acceptance Was The Answer

In the past 6 weeks, we have read and discussed Steps 8 and 9 in the AA Big Book and in the OA 12 & 12.

As per our discussion, I am including a sex/harms inventory worksheets. There are so many variations, but it does confirm that somewhere when we do our inventories, we need to consider not just our conduct in our physically intimate relationships, but also harms done to others that are not covered in the resentment or fears inventories.

This is a Step 9 Amends Form from The Big Workbook, that lists the guiding principles when making amends:

We have also read several of the stories in the AA Big Book.

We read Winner Takes All about a woman who was legally blind and which is a wonderful description of how this program transforms our lives once we get out of the way and let God work through us.

We also read Me An Alcoholic?, The Perpetual Quest, A Drunk Like You, and the famous Acceptance Was The Answer.

It has been really wonderful to read and discuss each story in its entirety in the meeting, so that we get the whole picture of the writer’s personal journey towards recovery.

Time permitting, we will begin to read The One Minute Apology.

Here is a very nice summary of The One Minute Apology

Although I would love to write summaries of all our wonderful discussions, I feel the need to at least document on a post what we have done as a group over the past several weeks.

I am so grateful to all of you for showing up every Sunday at dawn. You have enriched my program and deepen my recovery. Thank you all for being there!

“Together we can do what we can never do alone.”

 

In love and service,

Shira
