It can be a different and fun change from regular meetings. Candlelight meetings really reinforce the 12th tradition for me. not being able to see peoples faces and perhaps not even knowing who they are allows anonymity and ‘principles before personalities’ to shine through.

Alcoholics Anonymous (or the ‘Big Book’ as it is commonly called) was first published in 1939 and was subtitled The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism. It is the first text written about the experiences of the founders of the A.A. movement. It tells the story of Bill W., one of the co-founders of A.A. and how the program worked in the early days of the movement. It is full of much timeless and practical wisdom and is the first standard (and some would say the only standard) text of A.A. and, subsequently, of 12 step programs.

Celebrate Recovery @ Good Shepherd Church
Dec 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Image result for good shepherd community church boring orCelebrate Recovery was pioneered at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California about 15 years ago. Since then, hundreds of churches across the country have implemented this program and have seen thousands of men and women delivered from the strongholds of compulsive behaviors and other debilitating life problems. This Biblically-balanced, Christ-centered ministry of recovery not only serves our own church body, it also reaches out to our community, offering real help and hope at our church.

Alcoholics Anonymous (or the ‘Big Book’ as it is commonly called) was first published in 1939 and was subtitled The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism. It is the first text written about the experiences of the founders of the A.A. movement. It tells the story of Bill W., one of the co-founders of A.A. and how the program worked in the early days of the movement. It is full of much timeless and practical wisdom and is the first standard (and some would say the only standard) text of A.A. and, subsequently, of 12 step programs.

The CPO Program is the method Clackamas County uses to meet Goal 1, Citizen Involvement, of the Statewide Planning Goals. Everyone who lives, owns property or has a business in the unincorporated parts of the County can be a member of a CPO. Since land use planning within a city is the responsibility of the city, individuals who live inside city limits can be involved in their city’s citizen involvement program.
