Recovery at Dayton is a program that embraces people struggling with all sorts of addictive issues, compulsive behaviors, loss and life challenges. The program incorporates the proven principles of recovery established by groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon. Those recovery principles are made effective through the power of Jesus Christ and the free gift of His love and grace. Jesus is the inspiration and the Bible is our foundation of our teaching. The 12 Steps, accountability and fellowship with others in recovery are our tools. Jesus works through all these elements to create miracles among us. Don't give up before that miracle happens for you!
Mark begins a new series taking an in-depth look at the Serenity Prayer: Acceptance. Those of us in recovery know the serenity prayer. We've heard it and said it at every one of our meetings and sometimes find ourselves reciting it a hundred times a day. Perhaps we know what it means to us, or perhaps we simply find comfort in simple repetition. But do we know that those first three lines are just the beginning of the prayer? As with most things that are so familiar, a lot of meaning can be lost in rote repetition. This series will focus on breaking down the walls many of us have built around this basic tenet of recovery.
