Labor Day Weekend 2018

Mercy Street will meet this Saturday, September 1st at 5:30pm at Lakeland Community Church in Lee’s Summit.  Child care will be provided.

This Saturday marks the start of a new month and thus a new step focus.  For the month of September we will be focusing on Step 12:

Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

And the biblical comparison:

Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently.  But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.  – Galatians 6:1

Emotional Sobriety – a free audio teaching by Richard Rohr

Richard Rohr invites us toward an authentic, full sobriety that includes body, mind and heart.  When “happiness” eludes us, – as eventually it always will – we have an opportunity to examine our programmed responses and choose a different path.  You may access this free 80-minute audio teaching here on the Center for Action and Contemplation website
