IN THE SPIRIT OF AA: A Twelve-Step Retreat
Friday, August 19 - Sunday, August 21, 2022
Spend a weekend getting back to the key that unlocks the 12-Steps for those who follow them. We will take slightly different approach to these conventional steps and traditions. Recovery can be a traumatic 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.
