Happy New Year!

Mercy Street will meet this Saturday, January 12th at 5:30pm at Lakeland Community Church in Lee’s Summit.  However there is a winter weather advisory in effect for Saturday.  It is possible the meeting will be cancelled due to weather.  If you would like to get a text notification of the meeting status, please send an e-mail to mercystreetkc (at) gmail.com.  An update will also be posted on this website.

During the month of January we are focusing on Step Four.

Made a searching a fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord. – Lamentations 3:40

Last Saturday we watched a video from the National Association for Christian Recovery on the fear inventory.  If you missed it or would like to watch again, here is the link to the video:

NACR – By the Book: Step 4 – Fear Inventory

The NACR also has another Step Four video on the resentment inventory.  This one is a bit longer and can be found at the link below.

NACR – By the Book: Step 4 – Resentment Inventory

The Step Four prayer from last week, also courtesy of the NACR:

Dear God,

I am afraid.
A lot.
I have been afraid for a long time.
I don’t know what the future holds.
I can’t control it.
Sometimes when I am afraid, I don’t want to feel anything.
See the problem?
I need help.
Give me the patience and courage
to do a full inventory of my fears.
Help me to see with clarity
what has been getting in the way
of living a sane and sober life.
