Mercy Street will meet tomorrow, September 22nd at 5:30pm at Lakeland Community Church in Lee’s Summit.  Our meeting will be held upstairs in the youth room (as usual).  Childcare will be provided.

We will continue our discussion on Step 12.  Working the 12th step is not just about sharing your personal story with others or sponsoring newcomers.  Step 12 is also very much “setting the example”.  Here are some practical ways to live out the 12th step:

  1. Attend meetings!
  2. Help set up before or tear down after
  3. Make coffee
  4. Give rides to those who may not otherwise attend
  5. Offer to do a reading

Your presence at a meeting brings comfort to others and shows them that they are not alone.

RESOURCES

Emotional Sobriety – a free audio teaching by Richard Rohr.  The 12th step is also about reaching a level of emotional sobriety.  This free, 80-minute audio teaching can serve as another step on that path.
