Bridging the Gap Between 12 Step Groups
and Churches of all Denominations
From the Director:
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 
1 Cor 13:13
Jesus came to us as an infant, our Hope. He walked among us as a man, healing and teaching, then killed  as a criminal, though He had committed no crime, to show us the path of faith in a fallen world. He rose undefeated, repaying evil with good, overcoming all with His Power, His Love. He will come again, to make all things right and good, for all time, through eternal hope, faith, and love. He is the greatest of these.
When I come to the end of me, that place where I cannot stop but cannot go on, well I call that hopeless. It is out of my hands, and when I believe it cannot get any worse something makes me cry out for help. Hope begins when help is sought. My cries ignite a spark of hope that, when fanned by action, can grow to flames of faith. The heat of trials being overcome forges my soul, and my spirit is strengthened by the light of the flames, then tempered by the indestructible Love of God, made strong and of service to others as they, too, cry out.

May we rejoice with Him, as we follow the path He has shown us and called us to travel - "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me." (Matthew 16:24). We can celebrate His coming by receiving and sharing the greatest gift of all - the Love of God as shown in Christ, our Lord and Savior!

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

 A Prayer of Thanks
 That which is has been already and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by. - Ecclesiastes 3:15
God is good. In times of super sales, media pitch men,  "wonder" cures, and legalized euphorics, we can only count on His divine love to get us through times of trial and despair. Each day is a new day in His Grace. Let us give thanks:
 Thank you Lord for your amazing Love. May we become channels of your peace as we share your Grace that we may glorify you. Only through Your Love, Your Grace, and Your Glory can we grow in service to You. Your Kingdom come. In Jesus name we pray.
