IN THE SPIRIT OF AA: A 12-Step Retreat
Friday, June 28 - Sunday, June 30, 2019
Spend a weekend getting back to the key that unlocks the 12-Steps for those who follow them. We will take a slightly different approach to these conventional steps and traditions. Recovery can be a shock to the system, as are all experiences of God. We find God in adversity and weakness; in our common disease will be found our common strength and courage.
